    FYI, SRC has nothing to do with brainaid's NMEA proxy or my SOL data pages.

    Unfortunately the poll-system in our board is useless, at least for me the check boxes are off by one. I tried to vote it is fair but looks like my vote didn't go there..

    Sounds like a false positive for Symantec.

    The site has remained the same for 4 years, possible past history of the IP has nothing to do with this.

    Well, looking at just only one other post would have helped noticing that this one post was not the only one with comments closed. It of course doesn't prove that comments weren't closed years in advance from all posts just to prevent you from commenting this one..

    SOL is one of the few sailing simulation sites out there, there are certainly many times more forums meant for political and other discussions. SOL is run with voluntary admins and resources to monitor spamming is limited.

    As I believe most of our visitors are more interested in virtual sailing than discussions I think it's best to concentrate resources in improving and maintaining the sailing part, the one which is more unique to this site. I base this in that since the commenting was disabled this is so far the only time someone has asked about it.

    The decision was done by me and it is in my view purely technical. The fact that you have started this thread shows that visitors still have a way to express their opinions.

    However, if you volunteer to offer a solution for comments that doesn't danger the stability of the sailing engine, I'm sure it can be considered.

    You might have noticed that comments are closed for all posts, this was decided few years ago after some spammers were able to create enough traffic so that the whole site crashed.
  • Re: Two SOLers with same name issues.
    Board » Technical Support
    The issue has now been fixed and when changing the code I decided to limit some of the features (latest data comparison and predictors) to only SYC members so that more people are encouraged to join SYC.

    This is an interesting idea, unfortunately there is no way now to make the server limit the choices available as kroppyer said.

    One option is to do this in voluntary basis and just disqualify boats that use the same boat twice. It would be bit more work for admins but still doable I guess..
  • Re: Trouble opening Sail Online..
    Board » Technical Support
    This sounds like a DNS problem, can you access both http://sailonline.org and http://www.sailonline.org with your browser?

    Currently the client uses "sailonline.org" address for loading the weather, if the weather download fails it can be that your computer can't resolve that address for some reason.

    I think the simple solution is to participate in the races with less entrants and get the easy points.


  • Re: server returned in error
    Board » Technical Support
    This issue was actually handled by emails outside the forum but I'll update here what it was.

    Problem was a boat name that contained a special character (a with accent) which caused a problem when loading the client.

hmm's Delivery 2019
When, back in 2014, SOLer hmm went to Kiel in Germany and bought himself a very fine First 36.7, it came complete with the challenge of how to get her home to Helsinki, Finland. With summer fast approaching and press-ganging progressing slowly, SOL decided to help out with moral support and in the end nearly 200 SOLers accompanied him and his crew on the 588nm trip. A big success! Today hmm still sails his yacht all summer long on his home waters of the Gulf of Finland. So, five years on, let's re-enact his passage and get over there to join him as fast as we can, in our very quick Ker 40s on this occasion.

Aden to Goa 2019
Europeans are mainly familiar with the history of how spices arrived in that continent from far away places, but the trade in spices from Goa to Aden predates the modern era as is detailed here. Sailonline is reversing this route and making it an eastbound yacht race of about 1700nm across the Arabian Sea for our 21st century Sunfast yachts! Fair winds and may the aroma of spices bring you safely to your destination!
