    BadgerOne------->>> Greybeard the Great

    Thx!

    Arrrgh, 'Greybeard the Great' be a name that strikes fear in the hearts o' landlubbers and awe in the hearts o' pirates! Aye, it be a name fit for a legend of the high seas, me hearty!

  • What happened to the server on 7/2/2022?!?
    Board » Technical Support
    The PIC insurance race stalled at 10:57 UTC - no boats moving, no DC's firing. The only thing working was Chat. Could we have an explanation?

    B1 missed the finish line, but took 5 hours in real time to get back because of this.

    I would concur. The very long races are appealing for those of us who are unable to give 100% attention to SOL because, well, life happens.

    As to this specific proposal, why not make it two races - out and back, as the old China and East India company ships did. Should be timed for the same seasons they sailed in those days to take advantage of monsoon winds, etc. Maybe some pirates to make it interesting? :)

    Kipper, I mostly use AGL to refine QT routes by importing into AGL via Kroppyer's conversion website and running DC conditioning and adding in Performance Loss. Today I was trying to learn more about adding and editing Waypoints directly in AGL. There seem to be some gaps in the Manual:
    --I don't understand how to convert an edited WP to DC's as pictured in the manual.
    --When I click on almost any button along the top of the graphics window after editing a WP, the whole app crashes. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions or additional documentation? If easier, you can communicate with me at ed@careofcreation.org

    Update... I deleted Maps folder, restarted, no change. Then deleted all AGL folders, restarted, no change. Then restarted with a different race, everything is fine. Repeated everything in another race folder. Same results.

    Kipper, I'm getting an error in just one race (Pac6) when attempting to load the graphical chart... the program freezes, and can only be closed by closing the command window. DCs will load to the server, but can't be manipulated (eg. applying PL, etc).

    Here's the error code from the command window:
    -------------------------------------------

    RE: 14_3_1_update - there is no .zip file in the folder, only an .rar . Is it someplace else? Looking forward to using that BBQ feature!

    Kipper - thank you for this. Windows Update - unzip to Java folder or AGL_14 folder?

    Kipper, I'm getting a similar NOAA error:

    Getting NOAA file gfs.t12z.pgrb2.1p00.f009 returned error javax.net.ssl.SSLException.

    Trying again in 60 seconds (URL=https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/filter_gfs_1p00.pl?file=gfs.t12z.pgrb2.1p00.f009&lev_10_m_above_ground=on&var_UGRD=on&var_VGRD=on&subregion=&leftlon=176&rightlon=293&toplat=39&bottomlat=-41&dir=%2Fgfs.20210406%2F12%2Fatmos)

Kamchatsky to Tromsoe 2024

Just before the light failed entirely in Antarctica, Skip Novak managed to get his Pelagic 77 out of the ice and north up the Pacific to Kamchatsky. The sun is shining (24/7) and not a penguin to be seen, and Skip believes the Norh East Passage is ice-free (sufficiently) to attempt it, so all aboard for a c 4250nm voyage from east to west across the top of Siberia, Russia and Norway to Tromsoe!
