Gen 5 upgrades--what's happening?

Out of curiosity, what are the upgrades happening tonight?

Re: Gen 5 upgrades--what's happening?

No one knows for sure aside from the mods...  They wont tell us exactly what is being done, but, with the recent connectivity issues that popped up this past weekend we can assume a few things...

Most likely:
1:  These "Upgrades" are what they hope will be permenant fixes that will keep this exact issue from popping up in the future.


Least likely:
2: They actually performed upgrades to increase capacity of the system some, if it was a capacity related event.  Seeing as this happened during a peak time period, and people kept trying to use the system... It could have been capacity related, but I seriously have my own doubts.  What it would require to increase capacity of a capacity limited system is... difficult at best to explain, and would have limitations.

You'd think.. but no. just told it might be a long couple of nights of us working >_< - It's rare, but occasionally issues are caused by something not proprietary to HN and our 'clearance level' around here is moot.

This is why some of us retire.

I think you retired so you could run like a crazy man in the wee hours. Smiley Wink

I actually took the week off. I don't do well in dew points above 21C or so (I get up early to try and beat it).

So between the rain and extreme humidity, I figured it was as good a time as any to rest up.

Edit: You might say, I took an International Break, based on the timing... lol

You may have heard about the Waffle House Index.  I believe we should have a MarkJFine Index.

Well, that certainly has to suck!!!!

I still dream of the day that Hughesnet actually puts up a page that lists firmware revisions, and what was changed in each.  It's a PITA to figure those out. Smiley Happy Smiley Tongue
