8:00 – 5:00

  • Added a PMP role under S2A
  • Added PMP folks to VISIBILITY
  • Left a note with JM on progress
  • Testing role update
  • Also looking at new web hosts, since hostjava.net kinda sucks:
    • viz-n.com (hostjava.net) baseline:
      • ping (min/avg/max/med) – 156/327/442/348
      • 6.7% packet loss
      • tracert hops: 13 hops
    • feale.com (steadfast.net)
      • ping (min/avg/max/med) – 62/176/315/162
      • 11.8% packet loss
      • tracert hops: 9 hops
    • tanori.net (mediatemple)
      • ping (min/avg/max/med) – 84/256/406/260
      • 13.3% packet loss
      • tracert hops: 16 hops
    • philfeldman.com (dreamhost)
      • ping (min/avg/max/med) – 77/171/284/170
      • 15.4% packet loss
      • tracert hops: 21 hops
  • A lot of this delay seems to be coming from us. When I ping these sites from a dreamhost server, I get much better numbers. There is no packet loss at all, and the times are better (in the case of mediatemple, they’re phenomenal)
    • tanori.net ping (min/avg/max/med) – 1.8/2.0/2.1/0.09
    • feale.com ping (min/avg/max/med) – 78/78/78/0.078
    • viz-n.com ping (min/avg/max/med) – 87/88/88/0.268
  • Struggled with the role code for a while, until I realized that the actionscript object can come across to java with the children Lists being null. All seems to be working.
  • Burned a disk of VIS2 and PPM.
