I started my own muon proxy met subteam stats etc. At http://scriptdev.homeip.net/reader.php for my own team Clan_Delft.

But now I'm saving and saving and looking for an option to send my results to your ftp?

The name of your files is:
year/month/day-hour/minutes/seconds-code-team.txt

But wat is the code is it special or just to make the files different?

Thanks,
Ralph

Well I certainly didn't write Muon Proxy.  Someone else did.  Actually so far that program has caused quite a bit of trouble because it submits duplicated results...

I don't mean muon proxy, i wrote my own proxy but i ahve now to send my proxy results to you...

I can do that with FTP but what does the 5 characters mean in the file name?

I heard on a Dutch forum that the magical code from 5 characters is a random, so you can expect a lot of muons bij Clan_Delft

Better late than never, the exact lay-out (taken from sendresults.c):

sprintf(user3,"%s-%s-%c%c%c%c%c-%s",date,time,randomchar(),randomchar(),randomchar(),randomchar(),randomchar(),user2);

so that's YYYYMMDD-hhmmss-xxxxx-teamname

YYYYMMDD = YearYearYearYearMonthMonthDayDay
hhmmss = HoursMinutesSeconds
xxxxx = 5 random characters (to make every file unique, combined with the time-stamp this is 99.9% foolproof)
teamname = taken from your user.txt, spaces (32) replaced with an underscore,
was interested in this myself because I'll make a php/mysql proxy for the stats for Team Wau when I have time

Heya,
seeing you already worked out the proxy, can you (or anyone) tell me what "get signal.dat" is for?  Doesn't seem to have any 'vital' information in it?  Is it just used for general messaging?

That's for when I release a new version (and it comes out of beta): the file changes to show the new version number and a short bit of text saying why you should upgrade to it.  The Muon program then produces a message-box (or a message printed on the screen in the graphical version) alerting you of this fact.

Also that file is used to verify that you actually _did_ make contact with the FTP server.  If it isn't downloaded the program renames the results file back to results.txt and does another simulation.
