Question
do we still race at Oakland tomorrow.

We re-opened at Macs at level 2, but there was a bit more space around marshalling and we were fairly certain that HB had no community spread as things were winding down

What are others thinking?

Welcome to your future. 

Having raised 2 of these XX creatures, I have discovered that all assignments are issued by teachers the day before they are due in.
- Well that's what they told me anyway.

I thought guys might like to see their best lap times, which we don't often look at

One mystery solved. - The malfunctioning track power relay on Oakland. For some reason, the "wallwart" power supply that plugs into the Trackmate board, had fallen out of the power supply splitter board mounted on edge under the track. 
That left the Trackmate board only receiving power to function from the 10 metres odd of USB cable to the PC. 
Trackmate can run off of USB power, but does not get enough juice that way to trigger an auto relay.

There is also some voltage drop in a 10 metre length, which was undoubtedly the reason the Trackmate board fell over 2 heats into the first race.
- It is a miracle it never fell over again during the evening.

The cause for the power supply falling out of the power socket is best not discussed in detail in public, as PETA or some mad cat ladies may be watching.
He is asleep, and I shall deal with him later.

Can I interest anyone in a one owner, only slightly damaged Tonkinese with many breed specific canine habits.

- Can walk on leash, fetches - erratically, - comes with "back to base" homing upgrade - 80% functional
- He is not too fussy, he eats almost anything, furniture, socks, IOS cables, candelabra, track lights, trees (only 1/32nd scale), people - 1/32nd and full size, and about $30 of pet food a week.

Some progress on my new man/slot cave, "Bahia Vista" may get a slight extension when I reassemble it.

A long way to go yet but things are moving along.

Wide angle lens view, it's not that big:wacko:
