[N1MM] Error report for v3.0.112Norby,
Thanks for using the program in CQWW. I am sorry you had problems.
Right now I am swamped with email and things at home and work.
I consider your report to be the most important thing to work on, because
of the seriousness. K1XX at NT1Y has reported similar problems. I
am very hopeful that I can find the problems this weekend. However,
since they appear to be load-related, it may be hard.
I am printing out your report (I don't print many!) and will be working on
it. I will keep you up to date.

Subject: [N1MM] Error report for v3.0.112
This is an error report on problems we (CT9L) encountered during our
M/2 effort during the CQ WW SSB 2003. Even though it may sound
strange to you, we do hope others had the same or similar problems in
order to find solutions easier and fast since the CW part is
This is the setup we used:
7 laptops, running NT v5.0 or v5.1 Home/Prof, English and German.
1 laptop being used only to establish a connection to the INet and
"listening" to the logging.
6 laptops actually doing the logging.
1 10M Hub to connect all of them.
Establishing the network was no big deal.
In the heat of the contest we took no seperate note of the error
They poped-up "randomly" but could get "ESC"aped away.
If you happened to click on the "send report" button, you were asked
for the smtp server since none was defined. Although a Cancel button
exists, only killing the application allowed to "escape".
This is what I found in the errorlog.txt file of my laptop during the
contest time (256MB RAM):
N1MM Logger V3.0.112 25.10.2003 20:28:30 -
EntryWindow(MultiSocket_DataArrival) - 28 - Out of stack space
After the contest, this is shown:
N1MM Logger V3.0.112 28.10.2003 17:09:16 -
EntryWindow(EntryWindow_SetUpMultiOp) - 340 - Application-defined or
Maybe we have to look what kind of error messages were written to the
other laptops, but they are all abroad again.
At one point, the application could not be restarted anymore on one
laptop. Uninstalling/Reinstalling did not really help. After a while,
it worked again. Go figure. Syncronization on that laptop did not
work either. It's been running NT v5.1 Pro English.
Other points that are pretty annoying:
We used 2 laptops per running station so that a second op could
search on the second VFO for unworked stations. It happened that both
operators logged the same station within a couple of seconds. Both
contacts are credited with points. Rescoring did not change anything.
This is very bad.
When a radio is not hooked up anymore to the PC that has a radio
defintion, the application gets so slow (since it's waiting for a
response from the radio) that you can only kill it and run regclean
although that's annoying as well. It would be usefull to "discard"
the radio if no response can be obtained after a certain time.
Although no Qs were logged on the "server" laptop, there were quite
frequent error popups.
Maybe there are problems with some formats while the data "travels"
on the network. No clue. It's just all very uncomfortable and does not
give you a "secure" feeling during a "networked" contest. I did not
yet experience error popups during stand-alone activities.
