The commentator is suddenly unable to get games it doesn't already have. It returns the message “HTTP error 301 trying to get game #######.”
It also seems to be happening for finished games.
Meanwhile, you can go to the Main Page of the commentator site, pull up a recently commentated game, and manually enter the moves of your current game if you really, really need to analyze.
Need to fix this ASAP. I am not any good without using Twixt Commentator. Actually not that good even with it.
shyryan, could you please provide an example of a completed game which is inaccessible to the commentator? The complete Little Golem URL would be handy. Thank you.
A better workaround is Jtwixt. I will post a new thread about that soon.
All better now.
After my original post, I'd also confirmed that the problem also occurred with finished games. I suppose I should have added that information.
Spoke too soon. Not sure what I did a few moments ago that caused me to think the problem was fixed, but it's not.
LG's new HTTPS certificate (which was created yesterday) supports accessing the site at www.littlegolem.net but not at littlegolem.net. I used to use the latter domain (without the www) but that doesn't work now. I suspect that the Twixt commentator may be running into the same problem.
David, here's one: https://www.littlegolem.net/jsp/game/game.jsp?gid=2173967
Commentator has always hit www.littlegolem.net, with the www. So… I'm puzzled.
Thank you shyryan.
Um, does the commentator use https in the address, or just http?
David, looks like it's http.
and I just noticed that that link was tripping a certificate error earlier today, but works not – so it would appear that that is not the problem
still doesn't work for me. y'all have it back?
Oh, I see what you mean by “works now”. My blunder.
It would seem that all the completed games which the analysis site cannot access, are games completed after the certificate change. Can anyone link me to a game which ended before the 17th, for which the link to the analysis site does not work?
I've made a change to Commentator. Seems to fix it.
I can't be completely certain it doesn't introduce bugs, so if you notice anything unusual, let me know.
would those potential bugs affect anything other than retrieving games from LG?
Probably not. Why? Did you notice something?
nope, just wondering what I should pay attention to
In the world of computer programming, ANY change in the software has the potential to introduce unexpected bugs. I believe that Alan was just speaking in a general sense. mc.
Mister Cat – are you referring to the law of unintended consequences?
Thank you Alan!!
Looks like the commentator is down again, this time entirely (not just for unfinished games). I'm getting “We can't connect to the server” messages.
Now it seems like it's back. False alarm, or thank you. :)
Getting “Server Not Found” message for the commentator site again. Happy new year. : )
Repaired. Thank you, humans or robots or the passage of time.
