Check Engine Light
Mazda RX-8
Toyota RAV4

How do you reset the check engine light without taking it to the dealer all the time and being pinged for 80 a shot when its just the gas cap not being put on properly?

The computer will reset after a certain number of "driver cycles" (turning the car on and off). My recent experience with the CEL after a fill-up left the light on for about three days before it finally went out on its own. I guess the stringent U.S. emissions standards and the dirty byproduct of the rotary engine left Mazda no choice...they had to overinstall the sensors. It's a pain in the butt, though. I hate driving with that light on. Maybe the gas caps are faulty. Or you can disconnect and then reconnect the battery, if it comes back on it's more than just your gas cap.

it's the loopback address. The IP address listed under it can be pinged to test to see if your NIC is working

PING short form for "Packet InterNetwork Groper" is a protocol that queries IP Addresses on network. An IP Address can be pinged bit there is nothing called "Ping Address".

traceroute traces the path data packets have to follow to reach a destination and back. As such, when you run it on any IP address that can be pinged, regardless of what the target is running, it will run.

Tanks allowed the Allies to cross no-man's land safely and to punch holes inside German lines, leaping trenches while bullets pinged off their hulls. Once the tanks hand broken through, the infantry could safely cross no-man's land and consolidate the tanks gains, without being mowed down by a hail of bullets from enemy trenches.

The answer is NO. However there have been some cases in which a 90 percent match has been pinged in police computers (they call it a "fetch") in other words a paramiter of the closest 50, 100, or whatever selected to get the closet match. But it must further be examined by an individual under a magnifying glass to be determined 100%.

Yes, you can. The reason is that mobile phone is always sending a message to the closest tower. This is called a ping. Mobile phone tracking technology can locate the last tower your cell phone pinged to and the nearby tower of the next level of signal strength to it. Therefore, the newer mobile phones equipped with GPS can determine your phone's location to within a few feet. http://www.dinodirect.com/Cell-Phones

The app Lookout needs to be downloaded to your phone and you must sign in on the website. It is free. If you want, you can test it. Visit the website; login as usual. Within 1 to 2 minutes, it will show the last place it pinged off a tower. Though it is usually pretty accurate, it can be "off" a little ways. But it is still better than trying to guess where you left it.

" PING " , simply means ' Packet Internet Groper '. This is a utility that actually lets you check the speed of Packet data sent and received on a network. When an IP address is pinged, the Network Adapter send out a specific number of packets and receives it back. A calculation of the receive time is made and this is usually in milliseconds. The higher this time is the longer it has taken the packets to be received. This is not good because it means that the Network has excess packet collisions and or noise and that it is quite slow.

Beta 1.7 version. Update regularly. Well, first you need to do research on the forums or their website to see if it is white list.( They select you personally.) You need to get white listed or register to play that. If it is not white list, search for the server name. Usually on the website or advertisement on the forums or lists it will often state that it is online or "pinged." If it's online then maybe they changed their address or ip number, or the bandwidth drained out from too many players, or there isn't a slot left. If it is offline, the owner is offline or shut it down, banned people, or restarted and is updating.

First of all it don't there don't has to be a problem when you can't ping a object in a network, it usually just means the settings aren't chosen right. Also the problem is almost in every case located in the machine wich cannot be pinged, not the one who gets a timeout when trying. Pinging over the internet is always rather complicated, since you aren't directly connected with all those computers like in a local network (ethernet) and your ping has to go over several checkpoints (like routers). Also many people use proxys, wich means they don't enter the internet through the address of their router, but over the address of a certain server, so it's harder to track down their ip address. Another frequent problem are the settings of your router or local firewall.

Sonar (which stands for SOund NAvigation and Ranging) can be made to identify the object it pings on - if active sonar; if passive sonar, identify the object making the sound it picks up. The higher the frequency of the active sonar ping, the better the resolution - but the shorter the range. At higher resolutions, it is not hard for the sonar to identify the object it pings on. At lower frequencies, the range is greater but it is harder for the sonar to identify what is being pinged. Another benefit of active sonar is the range and direction of the target can be discerned. Passive sonar just listens to the ambient water. Identification of the sound source can be made if the frequencies of the target making the sound are known and identified in a database. One problem with passive sonar is that it is hard to know the range of the target making the sound, although the direction will be known. Water temperature and depth have a great effect on sonar, so this must be taken into account when calculating distance. Sonar is used in the Military, Geological Surveying, and the Medical field.

height of your eyes above the ground: hradius of the Earth: r [= 6371000 m.]distance of furthest visible point on Earth's surface: dYour eyes, the furthest point that you can see, and the centre of the Earth together form a right angled triangle. (This is because your most extreme line of view by definition is tangential to the Earth's surface.) This enables us to judge the actual distance of the furthest visible point.d2 = (r + h)2 - r2Simplifying:d2 = h(2r + h)Sod = sqrt[h(2r + h)]and since r = 6371 kilometres:d = sqrt[h(12742000 + h)]For a typical eye height of 1.6m. this evaluates at just over 4515m. The formula gives the distance, in a straight line through the air, from your eyes to the ground: for small values of h this is little different from making a measurement along the ground.There is a far simpler equation to arrive at a solution in miles, this it the square root of 1.5 times the height of a human above sea level (in feet), using the sum above:1.6 meters (is 5'3") * 1.5 = 7'9",the square root of which is 2.810so using, sqrt of 1.5 times the height, we get 2.810 miles4.515Km (as previuos equation above) = 2.805miles. Which is close enough for me without knowing the radius of the earth!so try it yourself, take your height in feet and inches, times it by 1.5 and then square root that and that's how far you can see out to sea!! I'm short @ 5'1" so i can only see out 2.76 miles!!## This is almost correct. However, we pinged where we kitesurf to a known point using Google Earth and the distance was 3 miles, however we can see something which is at 27 miles!So the theory is totally correct but it needs to be x 10.2.7 miles is actually 27 miles at sea level. Remember the higher you go the further you see. Stand on the wall and you see much further. :o)

A "ping" doesn't mean much; it simply reveals whether your computer is reachable, or not.It may be part of a larger attack, so you may want to watch out for other suspicous signs. For example, a port scan would be much more suspicious: an automated program that checks which ports can be accesed.A "ping" doesn't mean much; it simply reveals whether your computer is reachable, or not.It may be part of a larger attack, so you may want to watch out for other suspicous signs.

Don't know about the WW2 Operation Dufflebag. Could you possibly mean the one that we ran in Vietnam? In 1970, the USASF A432 Thuong Thoi detachment (among others) guided USN electronic techs into Mekong Delta border areas to implant electronic listening devices along the various enemy resupply corridors. We also hosted some of the USN techs who sat in a bunker and listened in for heavy footsteps. This was the Vietnam version: Army Special Forces for tactical entry/egress, USN volunteer detachment for equipment operation, and Marine Corps Force Recon for damage assessment. I've never found any record of it myself, but that could be for many reasons. Since nobody debriefed me, I don't believe it was secrecy. Either the operation was too tiny to mention, or got canceled because it didn't pan out. Who knows? I left in the middle of it and returned home to take a breath. Personally, I believe it was too small to matter (sorry CPO Fred Z., and most importantly, RIP CO3 Tommy S.). My only clue for the smallness issue is the fact that these guys got to design their own patch & write their own unit motto. Patch was Snoopy on top of his shot-up doghouse with headphones on his ears. Motto was, "Only God Knows More." I don't know, that makes it sound pretty small to me. But the Navy is different. Since they could only sport the patch & motto in-country (just not in the boonies), maybe uncertain outcome got this puppy lost to history. Check some USN and USMC records (I only pinged Army SF).
