      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Nice to see that official tracker got also Squid routings. They also need option to change weather layers, then all my features have been copied and no need for building unofficial tracker
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    It is also possible to change between ECMWF/GFS Models in bottom right on ECMWF 9km / GFS 22km buttons https://gis.ee/vor/ Routing is powered by Squid Sailing!
  3. VG Tracker

    Squid Routing is now available also. https://gis.ee/vor/
  4. VG Tracker

    If you are using Internet Explorer then it does not work. Edge, Safari, Chrome, Firefox latest versions are working. Sometimes it does zoom to you location instead of Atlantic Ocean where the fleet is, so try to move manually.
  5. VG Tracker

    New Windy API with more weather layers and stuff. Position reports from e-mail are updated automatically to map as they arrive. If you want to give feedback then you can post it here. I don't have too much time to improve it, but new weather layers should be fun for naviguessing.
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    If anyone wants to play with more weather layers then: https://gis.ee/vor/
  7. Middle Sea race

    Back on track Yellowbrick tracker: http://yb.tl/rmsr2017
  8. Middle Sea race

    Not good direction for HB. I hope boat is in one piece.
  9. VOR Leg 1 Alicante to Lisbon

    Great job from Volvo for providing this live video
  10. Middle Sea race

  11. VOR 2017-18

    Why VOR tracker is LIVE when they are motoring, but during racing there is 6h or whatever blackout? Does not make any sense other than killing joy of following racing. To be honest I'm more interested in upcoming Sydney Hobart than this year's VOR.

    http://volvooceanrace.geovoile.com/2017/tracker/ Good to see that tracker updates itself every minute If tracker is not working then disable adblocker on this site. Geovoile chose unfortunate filenames for its scripts and it will get blocked in most common adblock lists.
  13. Yes, I found out what my problem was. MacOS can order different network adapters. Before I had Ethernet first, WIFi second, but I changed order to WIFI first, ethernet second and everything worked like you described. Also got my basic web app working, winter job is to make it prettier and use more useful
  14. Thanks! It does make sense, and hopefully I can configure it properly now. Can't wait to test it out on the boat. I'm building live tracking web app and using B&G data gives a lot of cool options. Live wind data, AIS etc B&G H5000 websockets are pretty awesome to get all that data easily
  15. How to use both ethernet H5000 and WIFI Mobile Hotspot at the same time? Don't have much idea how to set network, but I want to access B&G with cable, and google.com with wifi on laptop. CABLE access (B&G H5000 cpu) WIFI access google.com (WIFI hotspot) Any ideas how to do it?
