• Reply to Tasos Bitsios on Join the IoT Hackathon Rotterdam 2019 by Vesna Manojlovic

“The project page notes the deadline as September 9th, however after the application is submitted, we are told that the deadline was September 1st and we are wait-listed. Which is the correct deadline? Thanks, Tasos Bitsios”

Thank you for pointing that out - we have fixed the text. (the original deadline was 1. September, we have extended it but there are many places where that was supposed to be fixed, and we missed one or two). Regards, Vesna

• On Measuring Gender Diversity at RIPE Meetings by Shane Kerr

I like the related article in Atlantic ("I Spent Two Years Trying to Fix the Gender Imbalance in My (STEM) Stories") from February 2018, and a quote: "Crucially, I tracked how I was doing in a simple spreadsheet. I can’t overstate the importance of that: It is a vaccine against self-delusion. It prevents me from wrongly believing that all is well."

• On Measuring your Web Server Reachability with TCP Ping by Rene Wilhelm

Thanks, Stephane! In addition to Stephane's tools being updated to enable this new measurement, Hugo Salgado "patched" the "official" CLI toolset, and since then the new version has been published by Chris Amin: So now there are multiple ways to measure latency towards your web server using command-line tools!

• Reply to Michael Oghia on Follow Up to IXP Tools Hackathon: Code Sprint by Vesna Manojlovic

“Hi Vesna, thanks for covering this! Does the Country Jedi have to be installed from GitHub to use? Or is there an online portal? I am not sure how to get it to work, but I want to share it with people (and encourage them to use it). I liked Mirjam's presentation at the CEE Peering Days, and I think it could be really useful. Feel free to ping me on another platform too.”

Hi Michael, thanks for your interest! Yes, IXP-Country-Jedi is available both as an installed version, and as an "online portal" - however, it is still a prototype! You can find the latest data per country here: For example, Serbia: The additional "Per AS report" is only available for Greece, for now: And the code on GitHub is here: I hope you have fun using it, and thanks for pointing people to our tools! Cheers, Vesna

• On What Can You Do with One Million RIPE Atlas Credits? by Vesna Manojlovic

This is a pair of frequent questions: 1) I have too many credits - who can I give them to? 2) I need more credits - who wants to give me some? Usually, people post their offers & requests to either "" mailing list, or on Twitter, with a hashtag #RIPEAtlas or mentioning the user @RIPE_Atlas So please check and use either one of those. Thanks! Vesna

• On Another Look at RIPE Atlas Probe Lifetimes by Rene Wilhelm

Geert Jan, thank you for helping us to grow RIPE Atlas in the "not so easy" parts of the world! As for your questions, we considered them, and I would like to separate two aspects: - We are indeed distribute probes (also thanks to ambassadors like you) to all parts of the world. However, probes are still predominantly deployed in the parts of the Internet that is already covered pretty well - maybe that's due to the nature of the ”network effect”. - This specific article was not looking into the numbers of probes that were lost, postponed, or for other reasons *never connected*. All probes in the analysis and the graphs above were connected at some point in their lifetime, and then either continued to live or "died”. We will continue to observe RIPE Atlas probe distribution, deployment and lifetime, and we will publish an update when there are any new developments.
