KBVI feed down
« on: June 28, 2006, 11:02:38 AM »
The KBVI feed has been down and will continue to be down until July 5, 2006 (tentativly).  The college is using a new LAN security protocol and the feed gets knocked off-line after 15 minutes of inactivity on the feed computer.  I'm in the process of finding a new feeder site.

How about writing a simple batch utility that creates small network traffic every 10 minutes or so? 

There is a good, free Windows batch scheduler that I use on my feed laptop that launches a batch file every 10 minutes that pings my router to ensure the feed is still up (long story as to why I have to do this but it has kept up my feed since about March or so).

I would think something similar would trick that college's new software into thinking there is activity and thereby retaining the connection?

Wow, not a bad idea...I'm good with computers but I'm afraid I don't know much about writing batch files. I would certainly like to keep the feed there though, I spent alot of time maintaining it and I love the way it sounds.  I'll email you about this Peter.
