The MVRC site is down. You guys really going to publish the new challenge when I'm ten days away from my workstation, right?

Yes, me too. We are getting close. I guess the next email from Chris will mark the new rules and I am about to release the new software. And there is a geometry generator getting ready as well. That one will be very useful for the intro class.

I am so curious about the new software and the new mesh settings.

I would like to point out that the standard installation of OF 1606+ on Windows doesn't work anymore after upgrading to Windows 10 Creators Update.

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\ESI\OpenFOAM\1606>"C:\Program Files (x86)\ESI\OpenFOAM\1606\Windows\Scripts\of_start_container.exe" -Arguments "C:\Program Files\Docker Toolbox\;C:\Program Files\Git\bin"
Starting "default"...
Machine "default" is already running.
Error checking TLS connection: Error checking and/or regenerating the certs: There was an error validating certificates for host "192.168.99.100:2376": open C:\Users\Amministratore\.docker\machine\machines\default\server.pem: Impossibile trovare il file specificato.
You can attempt to regenerate them using 'docker-machine regenerate-certs [name]'.
Be advised that this will trigger a Docker daemon restart which will stop running containers.

An error occurred trying to connect: Post http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.23/containers/of_plus_1606/start: open //./pipe/docker_engine: Impossibile trovare il file specificato.
Error: failed to start containers: of_plus_1606
An error occurred trying to connect: Post http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.23/containers/of_plus_1606/exec: open //./pipe/docker_engine: Impossibile trovare il file specificato.
Stopping "default"...

It looks there is problem with Docker (and a small issue with VirtualBox too)

Hi, what about the calendar? How many races have been planned? I would not mind more time between the races than last year.

Hi guys,
there is a new calender and I worked on the homepage. The plan is to finish and test the new software next Wednesday. So with some luck I will make everything available next weekend. As soon as Chris and Richard agree on the proposed calender, I can release it before publishing the new homepage. One small thing that will be different is that I have closed the old support forum. It is only there to not loose the gathered knowledge. There will be a new system similar to Stack Overflow. I hope it will be a bit better and one thing that will for sure be better is that I will get an email notification when someone posts a new question. This should improve response times.
And we will probably have a new team from Southampton. Looking forward to Coburn Racing.
Hang tight and don´t worry, as we will probably start July 9th and end December 10th there will be more time this year, although I am bit disappointed about me because we are once more starting a bit late into the year.

Thanks for the update and for improving the challenge.

Welcome to the new team!

I can't wait to see the cars (and to know which layout the teams will choose).
