Getting a bit peeved about the time that the Systems page was taking to load….
I’ve re-written the code to make it an awful lot faster!
The system statistics now get updated once a day rather than every time you open the page.
I guess that I didn’t anticipate that, after less than 3 weeks, there’d already be 71 public systems!
I think that that’s going to be all for today…
The church bell has just rung 6pm (here in France) and…
That means only one thing…
It’s Wine O’Clock!
Today, I have managed to add another 4 updates to provide more of the functionality that you have requested.
I have to say that I’m between a rock and a hard place here as…
On the one hand I need to keep the builder simple enough so that it doesn’t frighten off new members but…
Also has all the functionality that you have asked for.
So, what I’ve done is…
Hidden the complex bits!
Ang sent me a system that she wanted me to look at…
And, if acceptable, add it to my portfolio?
I took a look and, so…
I dived into the Builder and took a look.
Found a way of making it more acceptable to me (and my requirements.)
A couple of weeks ago Terry sent me the following mail….
I don’t know if this will be of interest to some of your members, Keith but, sometime ago, I worked out a way to convert the website ratings into a Word .doc.
It sounds a bit of a work up as written here but soon becomes second nature after a bit of practice.
The drawback of course is that it doesn’t contain all the RC, Course & race type wins percentage information as per the PDF download files, but does come in handy if you want a printable file that you can format and annotate yourself.
Now, I’ve been a bit busy but…
Here’s what you have to do….
Today, I have managed to add some more of the functionality that you have requested.
1). I have added a Race Course checkbox area.
This is so that you can break down your systems by race course.
For example, you may have an All Weather system that might not work as well at Southwell as it does at the other All Weather courses (or, vice versa?)
JimSeven has posted a Great Post on the Forum, explaining the characteristics of the different courses.
Many thanks… JimSeven!
2). I’ve very slightly changed the way that the results are displayed on the Builder.
Basically just some stuff to highlight the way that non-runners effect the calculations (because it was confusing me no end – but that’s not difficult!)
3). For new members, I have updated the User Handbook but I do have to say that Jill will be proof reading it tomorrow and, thus, until then, there may be a few Smelling Pistakes?
I’ll be working on updating the Cheat Sheet tomorrow.
Over the weekend I have managed to add some of the functionality that you have requested.
1). In the Detailed Analysis Box I have added a… link so that you can scroll past the Detailed Analysis.
This just speeds things up for those of you who wish to use the Builder in simple format.
2). I have also added a Race Month checkbox area.
This is mainly for those of you who understand that All Weather races in the winter are different from All Weather races in the summer (Thanks, Ang, for explaining that to me.)
3). I have also added a new dialogue so that you can select specific LTO ranges.
I am working on producing a checklist for Race Courses.
This will happen sometime this morning.
I have also fixed a few small bugs…
Thanks, Guy, for pointing those out to me.
I shall also be running an update tonight to include Average R4 into the Builder (Jared, such a good idea!)
Over the next week I shall be adding TCW% (Trainer Course Win Percentage) to the daily ratings (and also, the Builder.)
Guy emailed me and asked if there was any way to turn off the Early Bird Preview ratings.
There wasn’t but…
Now there is!
As you know…
The Early Bird Preview ratings come out at 5pm the day before the races.
They’re not quite so accurate as the real ratings but…
They do give you a headstart?
If you don’t use them, you might wish to turn them off?
