The Fido-History Project continues ... (Updated)

[27.08.2011] After upgrading the environment to php 5.3.x
the php error log fills with error and warning messages.
So I did a review of all the Fido-History-Project scripts
nodelist.php, nlarchive.php, ndl2db.php, binkd_nodelister.php,
and the phpdig package on ambrosia60.dd-dns.de, the local search engine. Updated software packeges you'll find under Ambrosia60 Software Development.

Database Search now back Online

[23.09.2010] After 2 months w/o a running Virtual Host I've rebuild a new Virtual Host. A restore of the SQL Server VM from June this year, needed maintenance again, but wasn't that easy as back end of June. Problems with the VM Host on 3 defective Hardwares tooks a long time to identify. Once solved, the remaining disk capacity runs out of disk space. Maintenance tasks couldn't be completed. Recovery of several other VMs is ongoing.

   

Database Search currently not available

[19.07.2010] Virtual Server #1 crashed with Systemharddisk failure. This corrupted the last 2 backups of the virtual mysql machine so this backup is not available. Trying to repair the data disks of Virtual Server #1 on Virtual Server #2 corrupts Virtual Server #2 also, so that the virtual machines currently not available until the Virtual Server #2 be back online and the virtual machines to be recovered.

FidoBase2: Dupechecking Problems ...

[26.04.2010] By starting a *.msg import of 2 addtl. sources into the Fidobase2 I'm still running into the Dupechecking problem. Dupechecking doesn't work as expected. Too much errors, too much problems ... Documentation: Dupe Checking

   

The FidoBase2 Project ...

[22.04.2010] The FidoBase documentation hasn't continued.
Kees is working on procedures for importing *.pkt's to MySQL thru the queuing system but not yet seen any script. Since dirks import stopped about Oct / Dec 2009 my *.msg archive never imported to my local Fidobase2 MySQL base.
So I've started my own development of the *.MSG to MySQL import PHP script.
The script runs with a dupecheck. I've started importing the older archives back to 2006 and had more than 5000 mails imported from the archives 2006-2009. So thus means, the MySQL archive from dirk and Kees are probably incomplete. So also the statistics may be incorrect. So this now needs further investigations ...

The FidoBase Project ...

[30.09.2009] Can be the FidoBase Project be part of the Fido-History-Project ?
Well, because the FidoBase contains messages from at least 1996 its also be a part of the Fido-History-Project.
The only problem is, its not yet well documented.
Starting today, i'll try some documentation on this. more ...

   

The Fido-History Project continues ... (Updated)

[23.09.2009] Repair on R23 Pointlists and Diffs 2008/2009
Receiving R23PNT lists contains wrong line terminations by FTS specifications
(UNIX line terminations instead of DOS line terminations).
This prevents Diffing and repair compile of missing R23PNT lists.
Starting replace Unix line terminations by DOS line terminations (unix2dos),
recalculation of CRC by diffing (PLDIFF),
repack and re-archiving into the FHP archive.
R23PNT #207/08 - #326/08, #326/08 - #361/08, #002/09 - #226/09 are now
reconstructed and also diff'd.

[19.01.2009] Received an archive of R50 Pointlists and Diffs from former R50PK

[14.01.2009] Found new sources for lists from Regions 45, 46, 48, 50
By a Google search for pnt46reg i've found some more sources
about Region 45, 46 and Region 50 pointlists and diffs:
http://www.fido.kr.ua/data/pass/ (Offline)
http://globalfilesearch.com/browser/194.85.238.101/R46_PNT/ (0 results)
ftp://194.85.238.101/R50PNT/ (550 no such file or directory)
ftp://ftp.3logic.net/pub/fidonet/info/pointlst/ (1991-1998)
ftp://ets.mephi.ru/pub/Fido/fileechoes/ (Offline)
ftp://news.svzserv.kemerovo.su/pub/fileecho/R50PNT/ (no listing)
ftp://mx01.mgts.beltelecom.by/pub/fileecho/r45point (failed to connect)
The portal http://proisk.ru/?page=19&q=pointlist
lists much more sources for R45, R46 and R50 pointlists.
A complete list of Region 46 pointlists from 2007 to 2009 i've got
from RC46 Anton Kuznetsov @ vlcorsar.dyndns.org
so i'd recovered the missing diffs as well.

On my search for pointlist archives of Regions 45, 46, and 50
i'm noticed about Pavel Gulchouck's project, who has built a
Nodelist archive @ nodehist.fidonet.org.ua too.

   

The Fido-History Project Mirror (Updated)

[14.01.2009] The Mirror Site can be found under fido.ddutch.nl
hosted by Kees van Eeten.

[11.12.2008] The Mirroring project starts into the 2nd deployment phase.
On fido.ddutch.nl the archive has been mirrored for a while by Kees van Eeten but the portal hasn't finished yet.
The NODELIST.PHP archive script needs some modification to run under the mirror. Also the transfer of the nodelist database needs some further inspection.

   

The Fido-History Project Web Search Form

[29.9.2008] NDL2DB re-import #4 finished.

[23.9.2008] started the 3rd or 4th complete nodelists re-import after be aware of missing state and keyword entrys from the prior import. data is now stored into a 2nd database until finished. if finished i'll switch also the websearch form to connect to the 2nd database.
Add nodelist states and keywords to the database with the corrected import script (ndl2db 2.02-beta1)
Also updated NLARCHIVE2 v2.00-rc9 websearch script to display state and keywords correctly.

[6.6.2008] ... and re-import finished.
The NLARCHIVE2 query results are now based upon the complete and fixed Fido-History-Projects-Archive of nodelists.

[4.6.2008] Inspired by Michael Dukelsky (2:5020/1042) i've modified the simple queries of the NLARCHIVE2 search form and added the 1st entry dates of the listed records into the output list ordered chronological.

[30.5.2008] it seems that some minor problems in the beginning of the NDL2DB import process results now in more and more data mismatches within the database, so the results are not so accurate as expected.
My plan is to reset the whole database and to try a restart of the import with as many as possible tasks/machines ...
Thats the import trial #3. The first import was interrupted by the harddisk crash beginning February (see Daten-GAU 9.2.08). The 2nd execution contains an unknown count of data mismatches. So: Third time is a charm. ,-)

[30.4.2008] NDL2DB import of Nodelists finished successful. The results of the NLARCHIVE2 Search Form now are complete as nodelists exists. The range of actual imported Nodelists is listed in the header section of the search form.

[28.4.2008] Actual there are 585 of 924 (63%) nodelists imported.

[30.3.2008] After recovery of the Fido-History-Project scripts (see Daten-GAU 29.2.08) i've started about beginning of March with the Nodelist import into the database. This weekend i've now started with the deployment of the web search form. My first introduce is the NLARCHIVE2 script.

   

The Fido-History Project continues ...

[17.4.2007] One of the results of the Datteln Euro Con was a question about sources of old Nodelists by Steven Leeman - the beginning of the Fido-History-Project 3rd Generation.
The former Fido-History-Project
ftp://ftp.fidonet.org/fidonet/fido-history (Offline).
Fido-History Archive by Gisbert Rudolph ftp://ftp.grudolph.de/pub/fidohist (Offline)
includes Nodelists, Nodediffs, Pointlists R24 upto 2004
Fidonet NodeList / NodeDiff Archive (Script) @ fido.be (HTTP)
includes Nodelists, Nodediffs upto 2007
Live Fido-History Archive @ ambrosia60 (FTP)
includes Nodelists, Nodediffs, Pointlists Z2, R23, R24, R28, R31, R34, R46, R50, FidoNews upto 2007
Fidonet NodeLists / Pointlists / Fidonews Archive (Script) @ AMBROSIA60 (HTTP)
includes Nodelists, Nodediffs, Pointlists Z2, R23, R24, R28, R31, R34, R46, R50, FidoNews upto 2007

[Update: 18.1.2008]
In the meantime i've added R22 (Finland [Poss]) and R48 (Poland [Boss]) pointlists.
Newer actual Nodelists, Pointlists and Fidonews will be automaticly added.
A 2nd actual mirror is held by Kees van Eeten (2:280/5003) well synchronized with Rsync. But there is still no online access. The online access has been gone by a disk crash. Will be recovered soon.

   

The Fido-History Project continues ...

[26.2.2007] One of the results of the Datteln Euro Con was a question about sources of old Nodelists by Steven Leeman. I've remembered me about an archive from a former Fidonet member Gisbert Rudolph who resigns about 2004 Fidonet. Last week i've phoned him about the archive and he let me know about an existing link: Gisberts Fido-History Archive ftp://ftp.grudolph.de/pub/fidohist (Offline)
This archive has been collected primary by Gisbert with others from many sources. One of the sources was the former Fido-History-Project from ftp://ftp.fidonet.org/fidonet/fido-history (Offline).
My first step was to mirror this archive. The mirror can now be connected under:
Ulis Fido-History Archive (Mirror)
ftp://ambrosia60.dd-dns.de/service/0_archiv/pub/fidohist.
After review of the Nodelist and Pointlist archive, i've descided to add missing files, 'cause Gisberts archive ends in 2004. The Pointlist directory only includes Region24 fakenet Pointlists. Other regions and the Z2PNT list archive completely missing. Region24 Bossformat pointlist that starts distribution as the main R24 pointlist in 2001 with daynumber #173 on June, 26th isn't realy reflected by the archive, so i've start restructuring the Pointlist directory and adding addtl. Pointlists.
[Update: 24.3.2007]
The live Fidonet NodeLists / Pointlists / Fidonews Archive (Script) @ AMBROSIA60 now includes Nodelists (and Diffs), Pointlists (and Diffs) (from Z2, R23, R24, R28, R31) and the Fidonews listing. A content search and statistics are still under construction.
[Update: 30.3.2007]
Added R34 (Spain) Pointlists from 2001, 2006, 2007 Boss and Fakenet Formats.

A mirror of the Nodelists/Diffs Only Archiv script can be found under:
Fidonet NodeList / NodeDiff Archive (Script) @ fido.be

  • 1998: Lists recovered in full.
  • 1999: Lists recovered in full.
  • 2000: #007 - #098 Ok. #105 List and Diff missing.
  • 2001: Diffs complete but no list can be created as of missing #105/2000 List.
  • 2002: Diffs complete but no list can be created as of missing #105/2000 List.

  • 2008: New Boss format List starts #277 (the first Boss format list)
  • 2009: Lists and Diffs recovered in full.
20.01.2009 Problem compile R50PNT.065 and R50PNT_D.072 (1998)
Starting R50PNT.072/1998 upto R50PNT.365/1999 there is a change in the admin line format that lets EDTNL v1.16 results in a CRC mismatch.
;A Region 50 Pointlist for Friday, March 13, 1998 -- Day number: 072 : 28661
This line includes two delimiters ':' so that EDTNL v1.16 uses the daynumber as the CRC compare value (=> 72). There is a fix available with EDTNL v1.17
Recovery of 1998 and 1999 R50PNT lists continues.
19.01.2009 Received R50PNT and R50PNT_D bundle 1997-2007
1st step: merged with the archive.
Tried recovery of Lists from Diffs with some starting Lists.
  • 1997: #318 - #360. Ok.
  • 1998: #002 - #065. Ok. #072 ends in CRC mismatch.
  • 1999: #001 Ok. #008 ends in CRC mismatch.
  • 2000: #007 - #098 Ok. #105 List and Diff missing.
  • 2001: Diffs complete but no list can be created as of missing #105/2000 List.
  • 2002: Diffs complete but no list can be created as of missing #105/2000 List.
  • 2003-2006: Lists recovered in full.
13.01.2009 Downloaded missing PNT46REG lists years 2007, 2008
from source ftp://vlcorsar.dyndns.org (Anton Kuznetsov, 2:463/648).
With the complete list of R46 Pointlists PNT46REG from 2007 upto 2009 i'd recovered the missing R46PDIFFs as well.
11.01.2009 Recovered Z2PNT #047 - #145/01
from Z2PNT.040/01 and diffs. Z2PNT.040 / 2001 is actual the oldest Z2PNT list.
11.01.2009 Downloaded R50 Pointlist Diffs and Z2PNT diffs
from source ftp://ets.mephi.ru/pub/Fido/fileechoes/ (Offline)
11.01.2009 Downloaded R50 Pointlist R50PNT.304 (2003)!
from source ftp://news.svzserv.kemerovo.su/pub/fileecho/R50PNT/ (Offline)
11.01.2009 Downloaded R45 Pointlists
from source ftp://mx01.mgts.beltelecom.by/pub/fileecho/r45point (Offline)
11.01.2009 Download PNT46REG and R46PDIFF Pointlists
from source http://www.fido.kr.ua/data/pass/ (Offline) adds many more older lists and diffs from the R46 pointlists distribution so a recovery of lists from year 2003 and 2004 can start.
A 2nd source ftp://ftp.3logic.net/pub/fidonet/info/pointlst/ has lists old files from year 1997 and 1998.
26.12.2008 Re-Add R46PNT Pointlists distribution
  • After find a link into Region 46 the R46PNT distribution restarts with #361/2008 after a long break
  • Add new R46PNT distributions to Nodelist Archive listing
11.12.2008 The Mirroring project starts into the 2nd deployment phase.
On fido.ddutch.nl the archive has been mirrored for a while by Kees van Eeten but the portal hasn't finished yet. The deployment of the mirror portal has started.
Starting modifying scripts and html pages for compatibility.
9.12.2008 Fido-History-Project Archive Mirror Resync'ed
The mirror of the Fido-History-Project by Kees stops syncing about 3 months ago as of an ip-adress change. Now the Rsync has been moved to a static line and the mirror has been re-sync'ed.
5.12.2008 PLDIFF Nodelist differ tool
Creating the R24PNT and Z2PNT lists with PlMake fails diff creation. Also the NlDiff by Thomas Seeling for OS/2 and DOS fails building usable Diff files. So i've decided to write my own diffing tool => PLDIFF. Based on the PlMake diffing algorythm, i've wrote PlDiff for DOS and DOS shells under other operating systems. PlDiff is aware of changes in the prolog or epilog section, can handle nodelists and pointlists larger then 1 Mb in size (2,7 Mb tested). PlDiff makes use of filebased searches and cannot run into memory problems like other tools. See also PLDIFF
10.10.2008 Re-Add R50PNT into Z2PNT distribution
Starting Z2PNT.284 the Region 50 Pointlist segment is re-included in the Z2PNT distribution. The Z2PNT_D.284 were distributed in full as too many differences between the #277 and #284 list.
6.10.2008 Re-Add R50PNT Pointlists distribution
  • With new RPK50 the R50PNT distribution restarts with #277/2008 after a long break since #138/2007
  • R50PNT list format changed from Poss1 to Boss1
  • Add new R50PNT distributions to Nodelist Archive listing (new script version v5.2.01)
1) Former links to http://fidopedia.fido.de/fido.de/ are currently broken
29.9.2008 NDL2DB re-import #4
25.9.2008 NDL2DB re-import #3 or #4
  • The 3rd or 4th NDL2DB re-import has started with v2.02-beta1 version after some more data inconsistency has been found (state and keywords not allways displays correct or missing).
  • I've also modified the advanced queries of the NLARCHIVE2 ( see v2.0-rc9 infos ) search form and added the state and/or keywords to the output list.
8.8.2008 Project Sites Design modified
Added a back link to the Nodelist Archive Listing and NLARCHIVE2 Search Form to the main project site and the actual design is shown in the link icons. Moved 2nd link into the first visible area.
6.6.2008 NDL2DB re-import of Nodelists finished.
NDL2DB import of Nodelists finished successful. The results of the NLARCHIVE2 Search Form now are complete. Known Nodelist failures are fixed.
4.6.2008 NDL2DB re-import passes 50% level
  • The NDL2DB re-import now has passed the 50% level.
  • Inspired by Michael Dukelsky (2:5020/1042) i've modified the simple queries of the NLARCHIVE2 search form and added the 1st entry dates of the listed records into the output list ordered chronological.
  • On a check by my Sysops name, i've found an additional nodelist error - nodelist 127/1999 has a missing 2:244 Host line, that moves the former Net 244 nodes into the next Net 2411 ... so every Net 244 becomes a new aka 2:2411/.... I've removed the related records from the nodelist-db to get the listing clean and added this exception information to the Fido-History-Project Listing
30.5.2008 NDL2DB database reset
The last NDL2DB import of Nodelists finishes with an unknown count of datamismatches. So i've decided to reset the whole database import and restarting the import process.
In the meantime, the results of the NLARCHIVE2 Search Form now again incomplete. The range of actual imported Nodelists is listed in the header section of the search form.
30.4.2008 NDL2DB import of Nodelists finished.
NDL2DB import of Nodelists finished successful. The results of the NLARCHIVE2 Search Form now are complete as nodelists exists. The range of actual imported Nodelists is listed in the header section of the search form.
29.4.08 NDL2DB import state
Total 692 of 925 (74%) Nodelists imported.
28.4.08 NDL2DB improvements II
Analyzing the NDL2DB import runtime, the results shows, that the hash algorythm doesn't help so much as expected x1). Its faster to search indexed Node entrys and Nodelist lines in the database than doing a sequential array search. So i've decided doing a code rewrite by eliminating the hash procedures.
Actual there are 585 of 924 (63%) nodelists imported.
(imported much more lists within the last 3 days than the 8 weeks before at all)

26.4.08 NDL2DB improvements
The NDL2DB import tooks a long time on executing the import of the max sized nodelist years.
After counting the nodelist lines and doing some improvements (i.e. added a workqueue handling and ordering for multitasking) on the code the import speeds up. Actual there are 360 of 925 (38%) nodelists imported.
25.4.08 NDL2DB import of actual Nodelists
Applied the automatic import of the newest nodelist updates with the NDL2DB import script.
31.3.08 NLARCHIVE2 web search form introduced
The result of the NDL2DB import script is a database with infos from Nodelists that can be queried.
Today i've introduce the first view to the web search form:

The true story about the Fido-History-Project 3rd Generation - Re-birth

Abstract:

One Short Question

The last Datteln Euro Con IV has passed without a note in the snooze but the meeting in the beginning year 2007 results with some fido- historical material that has been published since that on the web. Steven Leeman started publishing pictures from this international session on the web. A documentary film has been made late in the evening on January, 8th.
Participients were: from Belgium - Ward Dossche, Steven Leeman from Netherlands - Michiel van der Vlist, Kees van Eeten, from Germany - Alex Woick, Robert Bashe, Uli Schroeter and from Russia - Vladimir Donskoy. Via video conferencing from Sweden - Bjoern Felten.
Now about 2 months later, in the meanwhile storm Kyrill passes Europe, but one short simple question from Steven will still left open:

Where to find old Nodelists?
