Welcome to Omnibits for Monday, 26 October (Day 5)
is it! The Big One! El Kahuna Grande!!! Sixty Four-Way teams start
getting first calls in just 20 minutes. We have all the skids charged
and batteries greased.
In about an hour -- when we're close to
live judging -- I'll make another programming post about what can be
see on which YouTube channel. Stay tuned!!!
Open will be streamed on YouTube Channel One and Advanced on Channel
Two. SkydiveTV's stream will have only 4-Way Intermediate. YT Channels
One and Two will additionally have Intermediate teams, since there are
more Intermediate teams than Open and Advanced combined.
continue to have headaches getting the NetPost computer to stay on EST.
I have the Date/Time settings set to *not* do any automatic updates or
Internet time sync. Yet it periodically resets itself to Arizona time
1600298 jumps judged today, as of 4pm :)
this morning barely went well enough! Until early afternoon I had
serious problems with all the computers in the system (there are 17 of
them) operating verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slowwwwwwwwwwwwwly, especially
the copy station laptops, which are also the most heavily used.
can't believe it took me that long to figure out that when the server
(running Windows Server 2012 R2) is busy transcoding videos, it
responds to database requests only when it darn well pleases. So around
3pm I moved the database to the laptop running NetPost (which I happen
to be typing on here), which doesn't do any transcoding or video
playing or video processing of any kind.
MUCH better results.
Naturally this required some coding tweaks in the copy station and
scoring software to bypass the assumption that the computer with the
datamabase is also the computer doing the transcodes. That was easy
19:45.6... and this day is DONE! Four hundred
and fifty-six 4-Ways jumps judged! MP4 files are under the knife and
will start uploading early tomorrow morning (if someone can get me out
of bed). CU THEN
ps oh yeah -- 8-Way team rosters and draw are uploaded too.
