      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

What ION should do is put a dotted line displaying separation distance, and then a dotten line from each bow to the next mark. Then a arrow at the comittee boat displaying wind speed & direction. That would be the shit. This is just a complete tease....

Russ and Jerry are reading this thread, just make your suggestions. I think it's better than "just a tease" but there is still a lot to be done. The point of the exercise is to figure out how to make it as perfect as possible for fans of yacht racing, and to keep the equipment requirements very minimal.

 

Sorry - 45 seconds ahead at the mark - not 30 BL's. I'm relying on spotters for much of my info, and my bride left me for a faster boat.

The problem with streaming is that it only works when the connection is reliable - which it pretty much isn't at most events we've been to.

NO!!!! Did I just give you a big head? Clean what you are doing is exactly what this sport needs, less of a pro production, smaller venues, and more live in the thick of it. BTW, a satellite feed to the local server would solve most connection issues.

 

Something like ion with a video split screen would be cool.

Thanks for noticing. Mr. Clean is feeling a bit under the weather - 8 days without a full night's sleep will do that to ya.

 

Youtube takes a few minutes to process videos, I put the link up when I post them, but the link doesn't go live for 5 minutes or so.

 

Interestingly - if Heartbreaker were to win the next race, the teams could agree to go in, then leave monday as a single, winner-take-all race. I don't think they'll go that way, but it'd be a fun twist. We'll see what happens shortly.

 

I'll get the whole start on this video, ya whiny bitches.

Agree, 2 D is the way to go. I am finding that the updates stop after a few iterations, even when I leave the zoom alone. I think the default zoom should be on the order of 300-400 meters... That way you see the whole course and can get a better idea of the positioning.

 

Also, I noticed on the weather legs that when there's an update some of the existing courses (the red / blue tracing lines) seem to change as well. Can't figure out why this might happen. I didn't have the focus on either of the boats (where the application keeps that boat in the middle of the screen.)

 

I appreciate the efforts being made to get the job done... Thanks for being there!

Clean,

 

I lost interest in Sailing Anarchy a few years ago, but ths OTW forum and your coverage has brought me back. AWESOME coverage: the commentary, photos, videos, and live tracking have been great.

 

Thanks for pulling this together. The organizers of the Canada's Cup owe you some gratitude for bringng this regatta to the masses.

 

Great racing, too. I expected Honour to struggle with the wheel (especially on the start), but that doesn't appear to have limited them too badly.

As M8 said - there's some javascript in IonE, so an update is a good idea. Also, Russ made some changes to the code, you'll have to refresh to get them - that help the refresh work a little better, as well as fixing the "disappearing boat" issue.

 

We're near an attention signal...

Thanks for the great feedback. You've all been very helpful to Jerry and Russ - and I hope you can see the same potential in this stuff that I do. I tried to get these guys to Detroit for Melges 24 Nationals, but they weren't quite ready. I think that they will be now that they understand the game better.

 

Attention signal in 3 minutes, and I promise to get the whole sequence from 5 down.

Clean, probably a small correction but... I thought it was first to win 5 races not 4. If HB wind the next race they make it a 3-3 tie and would still have at least 2 races to go. Not a "single winner takes all race" tomorrow.

 

Unless, of course, I'm wrong...

I know that the rules do not specify this - the rules, in fact, specify that a minimum of four races is required to have a match. The competitors can choose to do most anything if they agree to it.

 

Exciting start - i'll let you guys watch it shortly. Big split, lots of separation, HB to the left, Honour to the right.

30 second lead to Bob and the boys at the mark. Bouncing Honour to the right was the right move, and it still looks like HB just has more upwind speed, and hence, options.

 

Quick comment - my boy BT at Torreson Marine in Musketucky personally supervised the bottom job that Heartbreaker had in preparation for this event. Brian said that it was the most incredible bottom job he's ever seen. Torreson donated much of the cost of the bottom job to the Challenger team - and I'm too much of a slacker to get their logo on the website yet.

 

So two things: 1) If you want a real Grand Prix bottom job on your race boat and you're in Lake Michigan, it is damned obvious that they are able to make a one-design boat blazing fast (if rules allow) and 2) BT - e-mail me a Torreson logo for the site. Thanks.

HB just rounded 17 seconds ahead. Nice gains downwind to honour, wind seems a bit shiftier now. HB rounded and tacked, going well off to the right, honour rounded and is staying out to the left. Once again, there's a ton of separation, just a minute after the rounding. WTF?

OH nice mr clean..... now lets put this into perspective..... Honor leads 3-2 at the moment and your selling bottom jobs for HB... hmmm. So u really think your boy at torreson has somethin do do with HB's performance?..... careful now cuz u torreson and HB may be eating some crow

 

hey i got an idea?.....bring your boat to Canada and get a real bottom put on at 1/2 the price :)

Excellent suggestion. I can do the line drawing part without problems. The difficulty is figuring out which buoy is "next" an keeping tit all in sync. Right now it's a bit complicated when the far buoys change in the middle of the race. I'll see what I can do about the wind data.

 

Jerry and I are already discussing how to display such things for the next race.

 

Any other suggestion?

I can unequivocally say that the Torreson marine bottom job is the reason for the sudden increase in speed. I can literally see the tiny rocket engines that BT embedded in the paint shooting their flatulence off.

It was a dt, that's two times that Honour had to do that. Heartbreaker's lead was up to 50 seconds at the bottom mark, but they've given a bit back just to stay on top of Honour. 3/4 way up to the final mark, barring disaster it looks like Heartbreaker and Honour will be tied, with one race likely to follow. I've got to go off-line for a bit to charge the battery on the phone providing the web link. Be back in about a half-hour to put up pics of this race, and video of the start of the next, assuming we have one.

Does anyone else find that the tracking is really hogging system resources? If I close that tab I'm OK but the whole computer really bogs when it's open (not very new computer, but it didn't do this until today...)

 

Yeah, my laptop completely stops responding until I force IE or FF to close. Have given up on the tracking for now.

The same things happens to me. I have to close Firefox once and a while.

 

Looks like Honour pulled a bit on Heartbreaker coming up to the leeward mark.

Our bandwidth and time is far too fucking valuable for this shit, newb. Not only can I not understand what language you're speaking, but I don't have time or bandwidth for you. Shut the fuck up, and get back in your hole, or you're gone. Got it? Better idea - go and start a thread about what a douchebag I am. I'm serious about this.

Yes, system resources (processor) are definitely being utilized... My dual processor system shows 50% utilization to IE 6 most of the time.

 

Both boats are doing 9-10 knots heading straight for pins... If tracker is right then I predict a course change.

Is HB really ahead now? What happened?

 

 

Looks like there was a right shift last 1/4 of upwind leg, they are going straight at the LW doing 9's & 10's w/ H narrowly in the lead if I believe my browser

Tracker shows note-to-nose.

 

Helm Hog? Did you push Clean in? C'mon - colour commentary PLEASE!

No need to panic. There are real life passes and then there are technical glitches that look like passes.

ionE will report the last position it got, even if it's old, until it gets a new one. Someone probably sat on the black box!

Looks like a great deciding race!

Looks like HB got the pole down and tacked faster.

 

This 'marks to starboard' thing is weird -- but yeah, looks like a 40 degree right shift. It's a drag race now until they get the next ww mark moved -- hope it doesn't shift more -- WAIT -- a new mark just appeared and is moving up the course (on a crash boat?)

Did Clean fall off the boat? Too bad, he does nice work.

I see what I can do about reducing system resources used. The system used to stop working quite often yesterday so that would have stopped using any cpu resources. ;o)

 

PM me with your computer configuration and I'll see if I can find a similar computer to test with.

It wasn't that Honour pushed HB out - it was a 25 degree shift that put both boats past the layline.

 

The Race Committee somehow "missed" it, even with both competitors reaching, pole on the headstay, for the entire "downwind" leg. All a big infuriating - a one-tack upwind and a zero-tack downwind does not a match-race make.

 

Great start sequence, HB won it by a bit, but the shift made it all academic.
