I'm not the rock the boat kinda guy and I ask everyone to be calm, I don't want any doghouseings or worse locked accounts. But I have to ask.

When TMP 4.0 arrived it wasn't anything like many expected. Instead we were told it was all under the hood.
Yet I can't tell the difference at all. The bug is back stronger then ever.
There is still an hour down time each day etc.

When was 4.0 rolled out?

I can tell the difference. See many lockfile bugs any more? But yes, we still have some bugs. I'm trying to get far enough ahead in my daily work that I can spend some dedicated, undisturbed days working on bug wrangling.

There is still an hour down time each day etc.

That won't change until we change the database type.

I can't tell the difference either. I get all the usual bugs, including this one which I see fairly regularly:

on index.mv: Line 718: Syntax Error: Expected >, found 'm'

The mangled topics is the one that gets the worse. At times it feels like 1 thread in 3 gets the ka-boom.

The shutdown time is my bugbear. Being on the other side of the world it occurs in prime time.

It doesn't happen prime time. But often at a time. When I've done my morning stuff and about to sit down at the pc.

Yeah, there does seem to be ongoing issues. There may be some cool things upgraded under the hood. But if the regular folks see no real change you have an issue. I would say a lot of people see no visible obvious change.

Ymmv.

Thanks,

John

TMP 4.0 went into operation? Heh, missed that too.

I've been getting this one all day.

/ads/writebanner.mv: Line 93: MvLOCKFILE: Runtime Error: Error creating lockfile 'banners/zoneview.dbf.lck': Timed out waiting for lock
