      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. ACWS Portsmouth 23rd 26th July

    ETNZ caught a lobster pot on the last mark.
  2. SOG from Raymarine A60 to B&G H2000

    Also, I'm not sure how it will work on the A60, but there might be a setting somewhere with NMEA0183 output settings.
  3. SOG from Raymarine A60 to B&G H2000

    If you just want to output from your plotter to H2000, I think you want to go: Yellow -> 27 Brown -> 26

    I worked on it, so I'm not fit to tell you if it is good (I think it's fine). I can tell you that slightly slower data won't be a big deal, as it is damped anyway.
  5. I suspect that is marketing vs R&D priorities. GoFree Websocket is a fairly niche feature to most people. GoFree in H5000 CPU will output all of the data that it has (0183, n2k, analogue input, etc). It really isn't anything to do with NMEA on the way out. The only "licence" that an app developer would need is ticking a box on a website saying if you break something it is your fault.
  6. I think that GoFree is simpler than SignalK. The scope of SignalK is more ambitious. In GoFree everything is designed to be an object in JS. There are numerical keys for data types, event ids etc, but you just write an enum (like structure) and that problem goes away. Simple data requests are trivial. It can do a lot of stuff, and it interfaces to a fairly complex system, but the client server interactions are all simple. I would say it is no harder than using JQuery well (but with fewer examples to copy/paste straight from the web).
  7. GoFree was designed for Web developers (it's what the webserver in H5000 CPU uses). They're similar, and designed to solve the same problem.

    An Englishman, a Dutchman and a Frenchman are all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze when, all of a sudden, Saudi police rush in and arrest them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offence in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime of actually being caught consuming the booze, they are all sentenced to death! However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they are able to successfully appeal their sentences down to life imprisonment. By a stroke of luck, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheikh decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheikh announced: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping." The Dutchman was first in line, he thought for a while and then said: "Please tie a pillow to my back. This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. When the punishment was done he had to be carried away bleeding and crying with pain. The Frenchman was next up. After watching the Dutchman in horror he said smugly: "Please fix two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again and the Frenchman was soon led away whimpering loudly (as they do). The Englishman was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheikh turned to him and said: "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!" "Thank you, your Most Royal and Merciful highness", The Englishman replied. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes." "Not only are you an honourable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave". The Sheikh said with an admiring look on his face. “If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish, what is it to be?" the Sheikh asked. "Tie the Frenchman to my back."
