Yes Group IM's are borking

[8:35] Zero Linden: So, welcome to my continuing saga, "Notes from the scafolding of the grid"
[8:35] Saijanai Kuhn: ack ack ack ack
[8:35] Squirrel Wood: ^^
[8:36] Zha Ewry hands Zero another two by foor to hold up the IM system
[8:36] Wyn Galbraith: Ruth'd Tree!
[8:36] Wyn Galbraith: Darn cleared up too fast.
[8:36] Zero Linden: As always - Tree is busy recording the session for future history of science majors
[8:36] Tree Kyomoon: three crashes in a row
[8:36] JayR Cela: Zero how is ther progress with havok 4 & Mono going ?
[8:36] Tree Kyomoon: nasty ones
[8:36] Neas Bade: or anthropology majors :)
[8:37] Zero Linden: I spent some time yesterday debugging the IM problems with Which yesterday
[8:37] Rex Cronon: last time i logged out was from SWT(sandbox weapons testing) and because the scripts and physics were off i didn't even realize that i still had my gun attached
[8:37] Alyssya Vella: the ones that had me talking in IM with one person and a completely random person seeing and replying in the box also?? lol
[8:38] Zero Linden: There are just some astoundingly wild things one can do with a dynamic language runtime like Python
[8:38] Saijanai Kuhn: My chat bot ONLY works when that happens...
[8:38] Alyssya Vella had to remind herself to do ALL business in voice ;-)
[8:38] Zero Linden: Alyssya - we're mostly looking at the one where all of a sudden a group chat process starts using up memory without bound
[8:39] Zero Linden: which causes the machine it is on to swap, which then causes everything else on the machine to stop running
[8:39] Saijanai Kuhn: Zero, remind which he has my chat bot code, which gives a 1200% repro of the group =? conference chat thing (if/when it works at all)
[8:39] Rex Cronon: btw, what is the maximum number of users that a group chat can have?
[8:39] Alyssya Vella: ah alright.. well that is an issue also.. although people you dont know suddenly appearing in private IM boxes with one individual completely unrelated is quite worrying also.. but one step at a time i guess ;-)
[8:40] Zha Ewry: FOr like, days?
[8:41] Zero Linden: Zha - oh no, once the machine goes into swap, we have to kill it and restart the group IM system
[8:41] Zha Ewry wonders, just how hard it would be to fully reset that utility cluster
[8:41] Zha Ewry: We've seen some giroups wedged for days
[8:41] Zero Linden: so it doesn't last for more than a few minutes
[8:42] Zero Linden: when the machine goes into heavy swap, pagers go off
[8:42] Zero Linden: cell phones ring
[8:42] Zha Ewry: AWGroupies, has been hard wedged, Since monday
[8:42] Saijanai Kuhn: which means AW Groupies IM is yet ANOTHER issue...
[8:42] Zero Linden: klaxons in the monkey house
[8:42] Zha Ewry: Nervous looking grid monkeys?
[8:42] Rex Cronon: that is quite interesting alyssya. never happened to me, but i have heard about it. imafine is one person say to another person "lets ger married" and a different person gets the IM:)
[8:42] Zero Linden: Zha - really? that's odd....
[8:42] Zero Linden: Rex - there is no limit
[8:42] Zha Ewry: Yeah, I've been on with conciregre pretty much every AM
[8:42] Saijanai Kuhn: 3 days now, no Groupies IM, zero
[8:42] Zero Linden: there are groups with 1,000s of members

From Zero's office hours today...
