Bob,

BS> Then ward is not doing his job (as usual), my domain changed quite some

If you only wouldn't mistake your mouth for an asshole and for once use
braincells before talking...

It may be fun taking a swipe at me and my system, but you have nothing to go
on. To assist in shutting up that hole in your head (copied from "Titanic"Wink
here's some factual information.

ZC1 produced ZONE1.312 file on Nov.8 03:04am CET and distributed it
ZC1 produced ZONE1.314 file on Nov.8 05:45am CET and distributed it
ZC1 produced ZONE1.313 file on Nov.9 03:05am CET and distributed it

These were sent within 4-5 minutes to the other ZCs. Now I will try to explain
this to you simple so you will hopefully understand:

ZONE1.312 contains
******************
Region,17,...IBN:nwstar.tzo.com
Host,140,...IBN:nwstar.tzo.com
,1,nwstar.tzo.com...IBN:nwstar.tzo.com,UNEC

This information is 2 hours later overwritten by ZONE1.314

ZONE1.314 contains
******************
Region,17 ...IBN:nwstar.dynu.net
Host,140...IBN:nwstar.dynu.net
,1,nwstar.dynu.net...IBN:nwstar.dynu.net,UNEC

This information is 22 hours later overwritten by ZONE1.313

ZONE1.313 contains
******************
Region,17...IBN:nwstar.dynu.net
Host,140...IBN:nwstar.tzo.com
,1,nwstar.tzo.com...IBN:nwstar.tzo.com,UNEC

The next 44 hours no ZONE1-file is received.

What does it mean?

That on Nov.9th the ZONE1.314 file is used for DAILYLST-production.

That on Nov.10th the ZONE1.313 file is used for both DAILYLST- and
NODELIST-production.

As a result there are serious discrepancies caused by a very erratic production
of ZONE1-files which seem to be produced in 2 different sets: one for the
Friday world-nodelist and a totally different one for the daily lists.

It gets worse ... your ZC obviously is using differing multiple sets of region
files during ZONE1-production.

So what she sends around on Wednesday (314) overwriting 312 and to be used on
Friday, will be used on Thursday in the daily but overwritten later that day by
313 which will be used on Friday with different R17 information.

None of that is any of my doing, I compile what I get. We have a shadow
nodelist-system in Z2 for bqck-up and verification running different software
and it notices exactly the same things.

Wilfred Van Velzen has highlighted the issue by netmail without any result.

So for all subsequent whining, please address yourself to Janis and ask her how
on Earth she manages to mess-up the R17-information so badly between different
ZONE1-files.

There are more remarks to be made about how the ZONE1-list is produced.

You may not be bothered by this, but everyone in Fidonet outside Zone-1 is.

For your further information, here-under relevant complete entries
from ZONE1-files which were received by all the other ZCs.
