• Duplicate nets

    From Björn Felten@2:203/2 to All on Mon Oct 31 16:56:37 2022
    When and how did this happen? Both nets date back to the 1980s, and according to our Ukrainian Nodelist Server, both of them seem to have been in the nodelist all this time:

    Host,310,Vienna_Net,Vienna_A,Helmut_Renner

    Host,310,Cheyenne_WY,Cheyenne_WY,Terry_Barlow,


    While searching for dups I also found this, not a dupe but rather unnecessary IMHO:

    Host,221,Finland_(301),Ylojarvi,Tommi_Koivula

    Host,2215,Northeast_Ohio,Kent_Ohio_USA,Bill_Burton

    Terry Barlow has no clue what he is doing. He has 23 entries in the nodelist with his name in them. But most of those nodes can not be connected.

    And his net 310 doesn't exist any more in reality:

    1:310/0 region15.net:24554 47.49.255.8 Error: Connection refused
    1:310/1 region15.net:24554 47.49.255.8 Error: Connection refused
    1:310/2 cheyenne.tkware.us - Error: Cannot getaddrinfo - Name or service not known

    So it should be removed, as a few others in R15...


    Bye, Wilfred.

    Not true, I am a Zone 3 sysop so I have NO access to some Zone 1 or 2 echos
    and specific Region or Net echos only have access to those sysops in their own specific Region or Net echos.

    If you need help or better understanding to become a Zone 1 Sysop I am sure there is help available.

    Correct. That's not in my job description. What *is* in that description is coordinating the glue that keeps the smooth operation of our network running, i.e. keeping the nodelist up to date. Such as pointing our potential POFs, like dupe nets once again appearing in our nodelist.

    But being just a glorified point-op, not really running a BBS, you are not supposed to know that, so please step aside and let the real sysops keep communicating in this echo, that I, BTW after a w/o years ago, once again is the moderator of.

    From classy to super classy. You are really out to prove what a classy ZC you are. Yeah well, to the rest of the Fido world that is, I guess you already have your local followers secured.

    Ah well, one duplicate net now appearing, after all that work with eliminating them while Janis was still in charge of zone 1.

    When my predecessor and her Troika disciples criticised the nodelist operation of your zone, they were rightfully told that it was none of their business.

    So I'm just leading by Z2 example... nodelists are none of my business unless there are show-stopper mistakes that cannot be compiled. Since there are none here... I don't care.

    I don't care to micromanage zone 1 RC's or tell others what to do. I just compile what I'm sent. Any intervention on my part would certainly result in you and VaginaLips whining that I'm "interfering with democracy" and "anti-American" even as you geniuses forget that I'm not American.

    Nobody else in this zone cares about your zone or your nodelist. Nobody here has complained once about the style in which I wear the hat or how Ward wears his. Nice and quiet, no problems... so quiet I can hear screams of rape all
    the way from Sweden.

    The nodelist is compiled here properly and not using often-random segments my predecessor was notorious for... that you, Ward, Michiel, VaginaLips and even some here in this zone complained about for YEARS.

    So fuck off...

    Oh, BTW, I'm on LCHF, so I don't get cancer. Sorry to disappoint you onc again. Maybe you'll get lucky, getting some though...?

    As I'm in a healthy early 40's, I take great pleasure in knowing at some
    point - hopefully soon - you and some others of simular composure will eventually make your grand departure. And I will be alive to enjoy it.

    How mature of you. So, no action regarding 23, mostly
    defunct, nodelist entries by one single person then?

    You are wrong, there is around half a dozen according to my
    latest copy of the nodelist.

    Look again:

    # grep Barlow Z2DAILY.307 | wc -l
    23


    I have :

    --
    Zone,3,Australia_NZ_PNG,Sydney_NSW,Scott_Little,-Unpublished-,300
    ,CM,XX,INA
    ...

    Well over 10 nodes !!

    Why are you showing us the Zone 3 segment? What has that got to do
    with any of the above?


    Nuts that's my eye sight I read the 2 as Z.

    Sorry.

    So, no action by you to prevent a non-sysop sockpuppet from the bayou accessing Sysop-only echos on Fidonet from your BBS?

    Correct. That's not in my job description.

    Wrong. If you're a sysop, it's your responsibility to properly
    configure your BBS to not allow non-sysops to access sysop-only echomail areas. Pretty basic stuff there, smart guy.

    What *is* in that
    description is coordinating the glue that keeps the smooth
    operation of our network running, i.e. keeping the nodelist up to
    date. Such as pointing our potential POFs, like dupe nets once
    again appearing in our nodelist.

    Regarding your comment just below... So, you're a glorified "clerk"
    keeping a text file up to date. Wow, so much responsibility! You are
    very important!

    But being just a glorified point-op, not really running a BBS,
    you are not supposed to know that, so please step aside and let
    the real sysops keep communicating in this echo, that I, BTW
    after a w/o years ago, once again is the moderator of.

    I am running a BBS, with actual daily users, who are *NOT* my alter-ego sockpuppets. You know, quite different from your "BBS".

    United we are strong, we win. Divided we are weak, we lose.

    If you're talking about the EU here, yes, you are weak. You lost a long
    time ago.

    Learn how to properly configure your "BBS", n00b.

    Yes, both nets where created in the late 80s, and they are the only "duplicate" ones that still remain.

    No, they are not the only two nets that remain. There was a time, IIRC some ten years ago that all duplates net were gone. I wrote a Fidonews article about it. Search te Fidonews archive. With my hat of FTSC chairman I urged all RC's to avoid creating duplicates wehen (re)creating new nets. That was ignored by RC 15 who recreated net 301 that already existed in region 31. :(

    Oops. I hadn't noticed that NodeHist shows when a normal node was removed from the nodelist, but it doesn't for /0 entries. Net 1:310 was recreated in nodelist.363 (2017).

    I'll look for your article, thanks.

    It happened in December 2017 - net 1:310 reappeared in nodelist.363.

    Carlos,

    It happened in December 2017 - net 1:310 reappeared in nodelist.363.

    And I asked ZC1 very courteously to examine the matter and have that RC try something else now that.

    That was however towards the end of Janis' tenure and while we had some understanding nothing happened.

    Nick as new ZC1 settled-in. I may have or may not have in turn asked Nick to come-up with a solution, but I can't recall what happened and the matter scrolled off the screen.

    Those are releated, but it is not the one I meant. The article in question was written when there were no duplicate nets left. So it must be later than 20 april 2009.

    Cannot find it. And I suppose you don't mean the one about the NADS.

    I only found some related messages in this echo from March 2014, in a thread about "Seen-by stripping". You commented about the demise of net 1:250 and asked RCs and NCs not to create existing nets and net/node combinations.

    I can not find it either and no, I do not mean the one about NADS.

    So either my notoriously unreliable memory fails me and I did not write the article or we just failed to find it.

    Hmmm.. Maybe that was what I had in mind.
