Sounds good Agage & Co when is it reappearing.........any ideas?
I got lost 1/4 way through
Well done to all involved
basically speechless
Go well
In the interim between this new client first appearing, being taken down, and now replaced and (it seems) accessible to all, I added map zoom on mouse wheel. You can also hold SHIFT to zoom faster...

Seems like Shift Key + mouse wheel goes backwards and forwards in browsing history (in both IE and Firefox) by default.
At least if you have zoomed out (and got back to your home page) you can zoom in again to get to SOL...

Only other comment - Mind blowingly good look and feel to the application.. excellent.. amazing..

I just hook into the Flash support for mouse wheel, so things may vary depending on browser - I don't have all browsers to test on

One thing I may have forgotten to mention about the new client:
The mouse coord information at map top right is now automatically updated.
So, if you use the arrow keys to move the weather slider, you can 'park' the mouse at some point and the data will update as the slider moves
It also updates every time new data is received for your boat - so the distance and bearing values will change. This can be quite handy when approaching a mark or headland to round, as you can 'park' the mouse over the location of manoeuvre and see the distance counting down with each boat update...

Can anyone say why i can't use the beta client now, IE8, all i get is a blank screen
It is working fine for me in IE8... Im not sure what to suggest other than a cache purge and reload

cheers AG, got home logged in and no problems, except for seeing where i am. perhaps its saying i shouldn't be doing it at work. cleared the cache but it didn't ask for a reload, will have another play tomorrow
Your work place could have some net restrictions or even block Flash applications altogether

Current Races:

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
