    @JC - I've noticed that at our last couple of events. The runs are definitely there, but something is preventing the popup window from pulling them from the database. I have no idea what's causing it, but it's not just you.

    @MCOAutocross - not sure if I should upvote or downvote this post. :(

    Hmm, I'd like to test this on my setup to see if it's a global bug, but I don't want to end up in the same boat.

    I've reclassed cars numerous times and have never encountered this issue. It seems like almost every event, somebody is misclassed and needs adjustment. I just did this after my 08 July event and had no issues. I'm away from my T+S computer right now but I can post version details later.

    @sjd - Unfortunately, that is true. His life also seems to have been complicated by health issues in his family, at least according to a post by @Chris earlier this year.

    The lack of support is a real shame, because there is a market here dying to be served. In the last 2 weeks I have advised 2 different clubs about using AXti.me and both are extremely interested in buying it, but are hesitant due to @Chris's near-total disappearance.

    Bummer :(
    I'm an IT pro, and while I'll usually recommend a Mac over a Windows PC for most things ... axtime is not one of them.

    I cannot recommend these highly enough: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Semi-Rugged-Latitude-E6430-ATG-Carry-Handle-i7-3520M-8GB-250GB-Webcam-/263038470380?hash=item3d3e5088ec

    The Dell ATG series is made for being outdoors. The displays are brilliant, legible even in the sun, and the chassis is rugged. You can pick them up used for $200-$300 all day long. This model has plenty of horsepower to host AXTI.me.

    UNFORTUNATELY, I only found out about them after I bought the semi-crappy touchscreen HP laptop that is our main hosting machine. We have 3 previous model Dell ATGs and those are the ones everybody goes to for staff tasks.

    Yeah, I get it. But a day's worth of posting live results is about 50 mb. Just make sure that your browser is only going to live.axti.me on the main computer, so it's not reloading Google or some other page on your metered internet. If you can get a very low monthly limit for an acceptable price, you'll be fine. I have 500 mb / month and that's more than enough for a couple of events. Good luck!

    @sjd - You should be able to get wireless results on anything with a browser. Putting in the IP address or http:\localhost should take you to the Club Home screen. From there, the day's event should be at the right side of the screen. Clicking on the event will take you to the Event Home page. You don't want people logging in, but they should still be able to see the results buttons by scrolling down toward the bottom of the event home screen.

    That being said, we had very bad luck our first season when the public were trying to get on our network to see results. The flood of users often overwhelmed the router and prevented us from managing the event. I don't know if there is a Canadian equivalent, but we got a NetZero wireless dongle. It was about $75 USD and came with a year of free (limited, but plenty) cellular data service. Now that the year is up, we are buying data month by month only for when we need it, at about $15 USD per 30 days / 500MB (more than enough to publish a couple of events). Our management network is much more reliable without so many users on it.

    We also have a spare laptop that we keep at the tent, facing out, with tiled windows for both the live Chrono view and the results page. Anyone can walk up and check results there.

    • audible start/stop indicators (with a different sound for start vs stop) or some other visual way to see start/stop trips from hardware directly

    Our scoring laptops are right next to the Farmtek console, so we can usually hear the start (1 beep) and stop (2 beeps) signals from it.

    On the main laptop, I usually keep TK open, with a Chrono view tiled in a narrow window down the right of the screen. That makes it very easy to see who is currently on course and how accurately the system queue matches the real-world queue.

    @MarcGSR : Ahhh, I see. I didn't realize that you were restricted to the number of points positions. It should be easy enough (from where I'm sitting anyway) to add a button on that screen that lets you keep adding slots until you have enough.

    • Fixed points allocation instead of calculation option

    Isn't that what's managed at Club Home \ Manage Seasons \ 20XX \ Class Points Calculation Method ? Unless I'm misunderstanding your item, you should be able to set that to the "Class Points Table" option, then edit the points tables at the bottom of the Season screen.
