Please Note That Data Boards May Fail to Start Up After an Upgrade on OptiX OSN 550/500

Summary:
0.03% to 0.1% of certain models of data boards and central switching boards with the basic BIOS version of 1.21 or earlier on OSN 550/500 NEs fail to start up after the NEs are upgraded, which results in the rollback of the NE version. The issue is solved after the boards are replaced.

Huawei OSN 550Trigger conditions:
This problem may occur if the following conditions are met at the same time:
An NE is upgraded.
The NE uses one of the following boards: TNH1EM6T/F, TNM1EF8F, TNH1CSHDA/B, TNM1PCXLG, TNM1PCXX, TNM1PCXLX, TNM1PCXGB, or TNM1PCXGA.
The basic BIOS version of the board is 1.21 or earlier.
Symptom:
The faulty board stays in the BIOS state after an upgrade and does not start up. The fault is cleared after the NE version is rolled back.
Identification method:
1. Query the version

QQ截图20140728093554

2. After an upgrade, the STAT indicator on the board is red and the other indicators are off, which indicates that the board stays in the BIOS state and fails to start up. The board starts up after the NE version is rolled back.
The following interfaces are displayed in the case of an automatic rollback after an upgrade failure on the U2000.When both of the preceding conditions are met, the fault can almost be identified.
[Root Cause]
On the basic BIOS of version 1.21 or earlier, the time sequence of the CPU adder is not the optimal configuration. As a result, there is a low possibility that the board fails to start up after an upgrade.
[Impact and Risk]
The board does not start up after an upgrade, which results in service interruptions. The fault is cleared after the NE version is rolled back.
[Measures and Solutions]

The fault is automatically cleared after the NE version is rolled back.

Solution:

The basic BIOS of boards on OSN 500/550 cannot be upgraded online. If the fault occurs on an NE during an upgrade, replace the board with a new board with the basic BIOS version of 1.22 or later.
Material handling after replacement:
Return the replaced board to Huawei, if the board supplied by thunder-link.com, then please contact your sales representative.

 

It's Free, But It's Broken

Google Abandonware

 
About six months ago I noticed that one of the portfolios I was tracking using Google Finance Portfolio suddenly started reporting wrong historical data for nearly all of the equities in the portfolio. I clicked on the "Report a problem" link at the bottom of the page and used the form to send off a detailed description of the problem off to Google.

I never received a reply, of course. I've sort of come to expect that when reporting issues with free Google resources. So, in the mean time I clicked on the link for theGoogle Finance Blog to see if anybody else had reported the problem.

Oh, oh. Here is the top post, dated two years ago:

Please follow us on the Inside Search blog

Posted by Karolina Netolicka, Product Manager

Thanks to everyone who has been a loyal reader of the blog over the last five years. After some consideration, we've realized that we're just not generating enough content here to warrant your time, so we won't be posting here any longer.


Instead, we'll start contributing to the Inside Search blog, so tune in there for updates on Google Finance.

 


Looking through the referenced Inside Search Blog  blog turned up no discussion on the broken Google Finance portfolio tracker, but a more general search turned up plenty of discussions on the topic, such as this one. Bottom line: Google Finance is broken, and unsupported.
 
More recently, about three weeks ago I went over to the Google Finance Stock Screener using, as always, Google's Chrome Browser on my Linux box, and I found it to broken as well, and fairly recently. I had used it just one month prior.
 
Digging a little deeper, I realized that their stock screener page itself wasn't really broken; it worked fine when using Firefox. However, the page was not being rendered properly by the Google Chrome browser; elements of the page overlapped each other, making the page unusable.
 
Here's how the screener page is supposed to look (Firefox):
 
 
 
And here's how it looks in Chrome:
 
 
 
The slider elements overlay the the numeric input boxes on the right making it impossible to set screener selection criteria.
 
Bottom line: it is probably not a good idea to include Google products in any mission-critical applications, because you simply never know if they will continue to be supported in the future.

What I want from a Linux laptop

 

My perfect Linux laptop would be one that can be used in a ultra low power mode and have the option of being charged from a small solar panel of merely 10 Watt. The only slightly unique thing would be the E-ink screen cover. To be used when reading or writing text in the low power mode. Additionally it should have HDMI and usb input to connect a raspberry pi to the screen and keyboard. The keyboard ought to be one of the old types since my error rate is rather high with flat keys.

Take advantage of lossy quality in the browser cache?

 

The idea is to have an option to replace big images in the cache folder with smaller ones of lower quality, different format or resolution. When I looked at my browser cache. The space were mainly filled with .png images. Because this was a poor choice of format for photos I would like to store certain images above a threshold in a .webp format as a replacement in the cache. I think this allows for much larger covering cache for the same size.

 

 

Smart Managed Swith or Unmanaged ?

What's the difference between cisco managed switch or unmanaged if I should plan in an unmanaged switch or a managed switch (planing to buy Cisco most likely).I don's see a point of buying a smart managed or even managed switch. Any suggestion ?

Broadcast Quality For Online Video Interviews

 

A simple idea to get independent high quality video for online interviews would be to cheat a little. This would only work if your not required to publish the video in real time.

 

The idea is to use dual recordings with the devices. For example. If the person to be interviewed has a high quality web cam but poor internet connection. The software could store a high quality video recording of his part of the session. In real-time the interview would be of the quality the connection can handle but because the stored part can be re-transmitted after the interview is done. It can then with the other videos restore the quality.
