Page: Previous 1 2 3 Next

Hi Kipper,
Thanks so much for the new version! I'm on 14_2_2. My gribs don't seem to be auto updating however *possibly* due to my "Next Expected Grib Time" being 1970/01/01 10:00:00. I have a feeling that it's perhaps due to my computer going to sleep but I figure you'll have a much better idea! Any thoughts? Cheers, Greg
I won't go into the details, but try restarting AGL and using the New button to force it to reload all the race data.
Yep, that's what I've been doing at every update! :) Cheers.
Actually that doesn't seem to be working but a shutdown and restart will do it every time!

Let me know if you need a hand debugging. I have a Comp Sci degree from a loooong time ago (hence 1970/01/01 00:00:00 being very familiar! :) ) so I may possibly be of use.

Can you check and see if the tag Description is in the race_info xml. I used to strip that out in previous versions due to xml parsing issues. I now use it for getting the Wx time, and then remove it in memory before parsing. If there is no Description tag, you are going to get a null date.
Also, please post any exceptions that appear in the cmd window

Will keep an eye on it but I'm happy to report that my "next grib expected time" has gone from the Unix epoch to something considerably more sensible and we're back to automatically downloading gribs!

I'll let you know what I see.
Hi kipper,

I'm facing an issue since version 14.2.1. And just upgrade to version .6 but the issue remains.
The DC time change some minutes when I send from AGL to SOL server. See images below.
Any tip on what is happened?

It was my notebook clock time that was not sincronized.

Hi Kipper,
Any idea why I get this error for NOAA file? I have seen this for a while when I have NOAA checked and set for 16 days.
Hi, Kipper! AGL is a wonderful tool for us all so thanks for developing and sharing it!

I've been trying to help Nicola (@Mediterranean) to setup AGL 14 on MacOS Big Sur. In the past, I've been able to run it on my old High Sierra MacBook but never tried on new Macs.

After loading the main window and downloading the DCs from the server, I open the graphical path window and it shows the route but not the toolbar (Image 1). If I close the graphical path window, any other attempt to open it will show the toolbar but not the map (Image 2). No error message is shown in the console.

Any clue about how to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance!

[UPDATE: The same behavior happens on MacOS Catalina.]

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
