Waze “Isolated segment – all turns from it are closed” – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/17

A blog entry since it was hard to find about [WayBack] “Isolated segment – all turns from it are closed” – Google Search as the source reveals not much: no explanation at [WayBack] wme-history/index.html at master · wazers/wme-history · GitHub (A repository containing the pretty-printed index and JavaScript files of the WME to investigate version differences – wazers/wme-history).

The XW6600 have now been demoted to Windows 10 machines that I only need every now and then, so most of the time they are shutdown.

However, with the installation of Windows 10 however, they stopped reacting to WOL (Wake on LAN).

Per web-search results, I’ve tried all the permutations of the below settings to no avail.

Luckily, my trusty APC PDU AP7921 (and little sister AP7920) helped out: when setting the “Reboot Duration” to 30 seconds or more (so the power fully drains), it can be rebooted.

Note that since I bought these a long time ago, they have been replaced by these:


Power usage:

  • an XW66000 with 32 gigabytes of RAM and one hard disk takes between 0.6-1.2 Ampère of current, which at 230 Volt is 140-275 Watt.
  • over one day that is between 3.4 and 6.6 kWh

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/17

Time signatures, a musicians best friend if used wisely. Time signatures when used correctly can add other dimensions to a song, a feeling of awkwardness, incompleteness, shuffling dancing, rushing…

That’s the start of [WayBackFamous Songs in Slightly Odd Time Signatures – A Guide to Rhythms – The Evil Jam.

It has links to the tracks mentioned (usually as YouTube or Vimeo links) so it is easy to listen back to the marvels using these time signatures.
