Big $ Problem :(

12 May 2018 - 03:05 PM

years ago i acquired MS "excel" i believe back in  2001
it has worked fine, for ...17 years, and all the upgrades, and updates.

2 days ago, i was 'updated' by win10 patch 1803.. i guess i cant' complain too much as i've read on the forum some can't run GPL with the new patch.
for me, its Excel ~
i can load it and make changes, but one feature (so far the only one i've noticed) is the SORT function.
to adjust standings etc.

strangely it did work for D2 standings today.
but when i tried 'lap time consistency' it crashed.

i tried several work arounds.. one being copy/pasted the entire sheet. no go.
then i tried a NEW sheet, did some basic input (a series of random #s in column) and tried to sort. CRASH

so what does this mean?
til i get MS to answer (don't hold breath)  or i get some suggestions to try, i may or may not be able to sort the pages.
i did download and install "Open Office" but when i tried to open the excel sheet, it wasn't a good result. so i'll need to learn OpOff and build all new spreadsheets, but not til the season ends.

that'll be a huge project :P

take it easy i told myself... no point in getting racy, the limited practice was staring me in the windscreen.
qualified p10... of 16 (?)
good start and followed teammate Pepe (as was my plan) for 2 or 3 laps, then 1st brain fade..and i was behind the haybales... fearing a DQ, not seeing oncoming traffic well, but it was quiet except for Michaels Honda going by.... so much for plan A.

but i was still in p10, so someone else beat me to the exit gate... and i thought, maybe i could catch that honda and again take up Pepe's six... i was only 12s back.. and feeling RACY <<< note, plan A said to avoid that....

now i was in p7 (or 8) obviously more retirements.. as i'm not seeing any traffic ... and going thru the wide sweeping lefthand, lined with haybales, that i ALWAYS had slowed more than enough (too much actually) i THOUGHT i could take it a little quicker than i had been (why?)  and of course the back end came around and i stuffed it in the hay...

Time For Reclassification/nominations

08 April 2018 - 08:15 PM

4 races in D1 that is..and time to receive any input from any of you about the classification of D1 drivers.
no, there is no higher rating for Rob, so don't ask.... altho i guess some of the higher 'g' ratings could be dropped  ;)

the door to nominations for changes closes with the D2/schottenring race.
