    It's the end of season and nothing's happened.

    I'm retiring as timing chief. Should I have the replacement chiefs move to another software or are things really going to get better?

    Did you restart the new computer when you started having problems?

    We've been blessed in that we've only lost 2 sites this year, one is supposedly temporary (which is what they said last year) and we've got two other sites left. The BETTER of those two just informed us that we received a noise complaint last year, so now, newer, more restrictive noise controls at that site.

    Also, since our remaining sites are expensive, we're having to raise prices this year since we're using those more.

    We're trying to get into airports around the area, but we haven't had much luck with that. We'd love to get into the local international airport, but costs are high, and the site wouldn't be that big.

    It's always something.

    USB Serial ports are the devil. I'm building a machine with real RS232 serial ports so I don't have to deal with them every year. Though, I've worked many years with RS232 and so my opinion might be just a tad biased.

    I absolutely echo the above. Welcome back to some normalcy!

    Sorry to hear about the health issues you've been going through with your family, I'm glad your startup is doing well!

    Curious, is there a reason, you put the entire WAP outside instead of just an antenna? We were planning on using a normal wireless router, located inside the trailer. Its 3 antenna would be relocated outside via extension cables. Is there a reason we should not do this?

    Primarily it's because of reliability and reliability. The AP we're using is completely waterproof and designed to be pole mounted outdoors. The antenna we purchased is designed to be used specifically with that access point and is also designed to be pole mounted.

    The AP we went with is a Ubiquiti Rocket M2 (now the Ubiquiti AirMax Rocket M2) and the Ubiquiti AirMax Omni 2G10, there's also a 2G13, but honestly it's a little overkill.

    For people that try to make reliable networks (things that don't have to be mess with.... ever) this is the way to go. Consumer access points available at big box stores are generally made to fail and sometimes fail after an extraordinarily short amount of time.

    @canadabeau That's awesome! I'd love to get to that next year. Working on it!

    A free option that I used to use all the time at work was COM0COM and Hub4COM, they're a little archaic but once you get them setup they work really nicely, they would be perfect for what you're trying to do.

    Those are killer specs! :D

    That's a quality machine right there, much better than our budget machines. Our budget machines have some issues, that's for sure.

    I agree, ECC is total overkill. My club is very concerned with losing data, machines dying mid event and so forth. A side effect of Axware crashing, and the machines being the kind of machines they were.

    I'll let you know what I get, I'm pulling hard for an embedded server in our timing trailer, but we'll see where that goes.
