Normally plenty to like here. On a yacht on Sydney harbour would be fabulous
Not nice here today .
Just went outside to try and fix the reversing on the Nuggets Hill track but too bloody hot.
Posted Image and that is Celsius

other than currently hot weather we will survive - I hope. Our air conditioner is working full time, so nice inside.
We really feel for people who have lost their homes and possessions with all the fires.

Still some fires about so we are not over that yet

If we had chained all the tree huggers to the trees years ago we would not have had no where near the fires. .

Had trouble with running the reverse direction on Nuggets Hill. The Sloit controller spat the dummy. I built the track 6 or 7 years ago for two of my grand sons using Scaley controllers.
WE are lucky to have the tack as it was rescued from the bush fires a few weeks ago.
So with the current heat here my brain was in no condition to think on how to rectify the problem. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Any way I have decided not to run the reverse stage this round.

Here are the results for Stage one of Nuggets Hill.

Some pics later (from the wife's phone). Some how my SLR camera doesn't like the heat here at the moment either.

Mel I would presume that the reversing switch is wired into the power supply before the controllers.
So that the power to the controller is reversed, not very good for any electronic controller.
The reversing switch should be wired into the feed to the lane.

Great to see you guys getting the wheels rolling again - a good sign that the situation down-under is improving.

Hope you are able to enjoy the event.

Thanks Leo,
The fires were shocking more than Australia has ever experienced before.
We drove about 15 hrs away after Christmas just to get away from constant smoke and clean air.
Unfortunately we had large dust storms mixed with it.
Last two weeks we had massive rain storms and went from 47degc to floods. I was over in NZ last week. Great weather and very clean air.
Some of the snow down south was actually brown due to fires and dust storms form Australia.

Long Stage 2 of round 8 Results

Heats were run in random order (by RC) as below.

Tried to down load the "Jason" file spreadsheet. yesterday
Tried to boot up the pc many times and all the monitor would show . . .
Posted Image

Yes I did check all cables and imput options but now luck.
There was one screen flashed up saying the XP operation system was no longer supported on the "Old" Dell Tower PC
As I have learnt to do since the early SCX proxies I always wrote down the results just incase :(. :angry:
A computer guy turned up today and was able to get the file on a usb stick. Was a bit scrambled but was able to check on my notes
There was no problem with the PC during the actual races.
The PC guy is returning to back up the hard drive and also install Windows 10. That might last until I'm in a nursing home :o :o :o :P :unsure:

Currently in the process of adding both stages together.

Hello Mel,
I had a similar problem with a Dell XP desktop computer. I cannot recall the exact symptoms but it seemed like the motherboard was dead and that seemed unlikely. Eventually I replaced the coin battery for the real-time clock and settings and all was well again. That was about a year ago and it still works. .

Had a similar problem myself, the battery tminal swerve corroded, don't know how , the battery wasn't.
So for 5 years I've been booting up in safe mode resetting the date/time and it runs fine. For me the key would be to leave it switched on 24/7 global warming and all that.

Pesky Snurf seams to have done me over again. GRRRRR

There's only two questions:

1. What direction do you go
2. What's the Lap Record?
