Like:

being able to delete races if need be on the Race Page (if a mistake is noticed and the race data needs to be resubmitted)

Adding a unique name to each race- helps to keep all details straight for HFAY, especially running CW and then CCW for both Racer and Open Class

Need more Info:

On Class designations>> does each community need to define the classes for both Racer and Open? I know the website is for more than just HFAY ultimately, and the Racer class rules are already pretty clearly defined on the Manual Page. Just wondering how to best add clarity for other visitors/members.

Thx!

Yes, one of my most common requests is to fix results. There is a finally for others to fix them

Yeah, it was a few weeks ago I was posting results to the PDX Miniz page and realized it would be a pain for anyone to find those races because I couldn't customize their name for our club to something like: A Main Race 1, B Main Race 1, etc.

No- you do not have to add the HFAY classes to your own community. That is a bit confusing and I'm not exactly sure how to address it yet. When submitting races to a championship it uses the classes configured for the championship. If you have any ideas let me know.

HaCo,

The Raspberry Pi is has an ARM processor and the software is not built for it. Also, I'm not sure it could run well on a Raspberry Pi. it is a very limited machine. You are the third person to ask about this however which is interesting. Out of curiosity, why Raspberry Pi? Is it just cost or just for fun?

The software was tested on Ubuntu 64-bit. It will not work on 32-bit Ubuntu.

Hi Blade,

The RPi is a low-cost, small form computer. It is interesting because it doesn't take the space of a pc and you can run it even on a powerbank, so it's also lowpower.

If it would work, I would have a dedicated RPi for timing, and throw out a big pc which has to do the job for it now.

Of course you also need a screen and some kind of input device. But a pico projector would do, or even an old projector which only has analog video for example.

Of course it is fun as well, and has more posibilities: you could easily read out room temperature, make start lights (LEDs), maybe other fun stuff...

What GUI development environment do you use, is it not available in RPi environment? You could make a build for the platform (I guess).

The application gui is chrome, and while chrome does run in RPi it is not amazingly fast. One day I'll get me one of those new Raspberry Pis and hack away but for the time being I think most people have one of the three other options lol.
