Is your site ready for this change of times of wind change?

Good question!

As far as I can sea this zezo hasn't changed the wind intervals, it's still programmed to 11/23 hrs, unfortunately...

I'm currently on a boat in Baltic sea near Fångö island posting this over 3G wireless link.

That change requires some testing that I can't do right now so it will be better to leave it as it is. I'll try to edit the finish point coordinates before the leg starts.

I'm guessing Sailing Sim is not going to be on line in time for Leg 10.....

Finish position coordinates changed :)

P.S. sailed 50NM today in 7-8 m/s wind and 6+ Kt boat speed on G2.

Raced a Beer Can Race today in 15 knots. Corrected out in the middle of a 18-boat fleet.

Nice going! Looks like the winds have been updated! Don't know if the Grib changes will be changed with the VORG's but this is very helpful. Thanks!

Right now, Cvetan, can't seem to enter boat names, but that's just a detail! Like the wind grids!

That happens when the game server itself is offline/slow to respond.

p.s. Have a bus, train and two planes to catch now. Back online in 24 hours.

Boat name is in, now. Another interesting thing is that the banner on my VORG play page says Grib update in 10 hrs 13 min. That would put VORG back on its original schedule! Whassup with that?

c'mon Cvetan, get out of plane and update winds...
:-)
Post by iconPost by BennyLava | 2009-06-26 | 00:07:14
yeah site is now pretty much useless...
Post by iconPost by tdw | 2009-06-26 | 03:40:15
yeah, sadly that is the truth...I really liked using this thing....so much easier than the VR Tool....alas and alack....completely screwed me for this leg.......

I still don't quite understand what went wrong....it's not simply that it is out of sync with the VOR winds....

Nonetheless, I fully realise that this was a labour of love.....I am not giving anyone a hard time, that would be unfair.
Post by iconPost by Vigilante | 2009-06-26 | 03:48:52
Cvetan will be glad to refund what you paid for it!
;-)

That's why I added the last comment......he did us all a favour and he did it for nothing....the fact that this unfortunate glitch developed is not a hanging offence....

and it is just a game after all...
Post by iconPost by tdw | 2009-06-26 | 04:39:29
apologies..posted twice...
Post by iconPost by Vigilante | 2009-06-26 | 03:51:00
Actually, it is very useful.... You can get on the site at work and it will tell you your ranking and boat performance. Under the radar, hopefully, of your employers.
Post by iconPost by BennyLava | 2009-06-26 | 10:22:52
yeah it's still useful for a part, it's very accurate in what vector you are and the position of the other friends. Anyways I'm within the first 500 so no complaints here. With working site it could be better though...
Post by iconPost by tdw | 2009-06-26 | 12:15:55
Yee Haa,,,,sorted.....thank you so very much :-)
Post by iconPost by myeos | 2009-06-26 | 21:46:27
As far as I can see, we don't have the new winds in the simulation.
Maybe this can easily be fixed?

TIA

It kind of looks like the winds are still not correct after the 20:00 (CEST) update.

I hope Zezo/Cvetan made it home alright!
