  • Re: guest login
    Board » Practice Racing
    guest is intended as a spectator. As such the message "Now login with our guest account to view currently running races" is accurate, and guest being invisible is desired.

    sol is available before the start of a race to:
    - have a look at the race prior to registering and choosing a polar
    - try out the platform without making your own account
    - sailonline volunteers make use of sol to set up and inspect new races
    For all of this, sol should behave as a normal boat during the pre-race period.

    Once the race has started, sol should not interfere with the ongoing race.

    As for whether there should be an option for "community racing", where multiple anonymous people take control of a single boat, that is another matter. I would suggest a (non-anonymous) message to the management via mail or the forum so that they can judge the interest in such a feature.

    The name of the file you are trying to upload as an attachment contains the character 'æ'. If you rename the file before uploading it should work.

    Finn... you will live on as an inspiration of how enthusiasm, hard work, and a bit of boldness can achieve so much with so little resources.

    I enjoyed working with you. You were a great friend.

    Good bye

    I believe AGL has such a functionality. Have a look here.

    Would a spectator mode help you? We have ideas to create a spectator mode, like a tracker for an IRL race: you don't have to log in or be registered for a race to see where all competitors are.

    This would help new people to see what our site is all about, and also allow friends/family to follow the race without having to use the sol/guest account.

    The idea of sharing your personal position/speed/wind info is new to me; I hadn't thought about it. Sounds interesting, I'll keep it in mind. At this point we don't have plans for this, but that could come.
  • Re: How to make Notes tab visible
    Board » Technical Support
    The notes are stored locally, in you computer within your browser even. You will need to use the exact same browser and computer and client in order to access the notes.

    So, if you are on iPad, there is no way to get the to the notes you made on your computer. I don't think the HTML5 client has this functionality to take notes, since its use is rather limited as you just discovered.

    A new version was published just now. In general, updates may come unannounced as long as we are in the development stage. Below is some information on what to do if an update does not work for you.

    There are three versions of the client: normal, dev and old. The last two are available if you append "?version=dev" and "?version=old" to the url. Normal is available as usual, without appending anything to the url.
    The dev version is regularly updated and used for testing. It will likely contain new features, but also new bugs.
    The normal version is only updated occasionally and should be mostly free of bugs.
    The old version is available for when an update to the normal version turns out to contain a crucial bug. Then at least you can use the old version.

    Should you (after an update) find a bug that makes the normal version unusable for you, append "?version=old" to use the previous version of the client. Do let us know about the problem so we can look for a solution.

    Thank you freudenoli for your feedback and welcome to sailonline! Feedback from newcomers is much appreciated. The new client is much like the old client in design and functionality. It seems a proven design and it's what the regular solers are used to. But of course we need to make sure that people just joining in are able to find their way in the new client as well. You will spot things we regular solers may not even notice.

    1) The orange dot on the predictor line indicates the point where the command will execute based on your preliminary settings. You have yet to actually send that command by pressing the button "send command". The orange dot is indeed not useful for determining when/where the next registered command will execute. You can however see in the top right of the map how long to go until the next command, and then set that number on the "delay" box to move the orange dot to the time (and location) when the next command would execute.

    2) At this moment, the only reason why the predictor line does not take into account the scheduled commands is because the old client also did not do this. It is the way it has always been and at this point we do not want to create a big competitive difference between the two clients. Once the new client will be the official client and the old Flash client just a backup, we will have the discussion with our members about changes as significant as this. It will change the game (at least a bit), so I believe it's fair to discuss it with you all before we make a decision.

    An indicator on the predictor line where the next scheduled command would take place, as you suggested in your first comment, is probably a small enough change that it should not lead to any controversy or competitive difference between the old and new client. We'll keep it in mind!

    A new version of the client will be published shortly. You can already try it out by appending ?version=dev to the URL of a race.

    In case this new version does not work for you, let us know. You can use the old version by appending ?version=old to the URL of a race, even after the new version has been published.

    To summarize:
    Right now:
    old: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/?version=old
    old: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/
    new: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/?version=dev

    After update:
    old: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/?version=old
    new: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/
    new: sailonline.org/breezy/run/xxxx/?version=dev

    EDIT: I have now updated the client.

    What you describe is caused by the different update times of the fleet, and your own boat. The fleet (all boats) are updated once a minute, so they make jumps of 1 minute. Your own pink boat is updated more frequently, and will jump ahead before the fleet catches up.

    Your boat is also part of the fleet, so an version of your boat is updated together with the rest of the fleet once every minute. It looks like it is sailing behind your pink boat. In the Flash client this boat is made invisible, buy you can make it visible by clicking your own name in the leaderboard-tab.

    Personally I always liked to see my shadow, so I could better compare how I was doing relative to the fleet. But it may be confusing to have it always visible, especially to new SOLers.

    I think you problem would be solved with the following feature:
    Make drawing of own boat in fleet invisible unless own boat is selected in the ranking-tab.
    Even better may be to have three options in the settings: {always show, never show, only when selected}, with as default one of the last two.

Lac Manicouagan Ice Race 2024


Back in 2013, SOLer FR_cirrus introduced us to the meteor-impact crater lake of Manicouagan in northern Quebec province, at 100km diameter the 5th largest such geological feature on the planet. We speculated then that the impact was perhaps the one responsible for the dinosaur extinction, but at 215m years ago that is wrong, and generally that result is attributed to the 65m year old Chicxulub impact on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Last time, we raced the 138nm ‘rond la lac’ in Platu 25s, but it’s winter and there’s ice, so let’s take our no-performance-loss so no-holds-barred DNs instead, and get back indoors quickly.
