Cool...we'll wait for it.

 

I was told something else about the mod 137 part during Wednesday's
meeting from the torrent team.

I'm working on it right now. Also, you just do a mod 137 on the entire
torrent size. You don't have to do mods on every file in it.

        Let the QA team know when things are back to semi-normal. Doing
mod 137 on every file is not practical, especially since the actual avi
file is sometimes not mod 137 but rather 1 of the associated files (ie
the .nfo file). So we would have to do several mod 137 checks on every
"real" torrent....plus all our sheets and formulas rely on us getting
the hashes/torrents.

        Don't do this manually, Dylan will work on doing it
automatically tomorrow as part of fixing the hash identifier. Getting
our posting numbers back up to par is more important than the hashes
right now.

        That could work. I would say use the "old skool decoy" setting
in the interface. The longest part would be choosing the project for
each torrent file.

                Those torrents are still stored on the Torrent FTP
server. Could we possibly just re-add those torrents/hashes back into
the database. It may take a while but I imagine it is still is
possible.

                All-

                 

                In an attempt to copy the data that the torrent team
entered into the old database, I managed to wipe out the last 6 days of
data. Go me! So, this means that now everything from 5/23 to 5/30 is
going to say that it's real no mater what you use, since there aren't
entries in the database for it.

                 

                Anything that is being tested should be checked for mod
137 to determine if it is ours or not for the next few weeks if the
identifiers say it's real. (The mod 137 check, of course, doesn't need
to be done if it returns that it is ours.) There is no way around this,
since there is no way to get the data back.

                 

                I'm also going to make a change to the hash
identifier/torrent interface that will screen out the garbage that some
sites add to the torrent file (which was causing false negatives).
Expect the new versions tomorrow. For now, just use the torrent
interface (and stop using the hash identifier already).

                 

                -D

                        Q: Dan asked what caused case 1.

                        A: Some data was entered into the old database
by Rendy and Gerald (they must have been using the old version of the
interface). I am going to do another dump from the old database to the
new database for several tables (should only take a couple hours.) Will
email when the dump is finished.

                                Oh ok, we can wait for the new
version...

                                But these errors are caused by the
torrent interface that's supposed to point to the correct DB. We're not
just seeing errors with the QA hash identifier.

                                T-

                                 

                                I sent an email last week to Dan that, I
think, was CCed to the QA team saying not to use QA's torrent hash
identifier until I had a chance to update it. The work around was to
get the torrent interface, since that is pointing to the correct
database.

                                 

                                I will make a new version of the hash
identifier today and email QA team when it is ready.

                                Dylan,

                                 

                                The hash identifier is reporting the
hashes incorrectly and reporting some errors. See below for details.

                                Here are the mislabeled hashes that I
found on the Universal Pictures 5-29-07 torrent results. Also currently
getting a "Database query error! (0x100B) bt_generator_maininfo" error
when trying to check hashes in the BT Interface.
