Here's my unofficial points count for STS. It's in Tab-delimited text, which should work in most word processors or spread sheets.

On a side note (not aimed at anyone on this board), don't you just love it when people send out files in the absolute latest format, like Word or Excel. Just because their work can afford to buy the latest version of Micro$oft'$ product, doesn't mean every one else can.

Well there is that. Then one thing I've fun into with business stuff... Someone sent me a file format that is 15 years old, a very old database format and I had no clue what it was, or did windows or any of the programs I have installed regonize it as theirs.

Some companies like to live in a REALLY old world (well really it's their grumpy data guys that think Regan is still in office).

In defense of people that send out new versions of files, they probably don't realize it's a problem for some people. Microsoft however knows what they are doing! More money more money more money! <---- guess I can't complain too much, I own stock.

I just had to develop a drop-shipment file generator. All fixed-length fields and padded with spaces - some fields left-justified, some right-justified. Why can't these idiots take data, lop off whatever spaces are on either end and deal with it?

Figures that everyone is XML crazy for web development - where it sucks, and won't use it for it's natural purpose - exchanging data.

well, that file is readable, but it's only 3 lines down and about 6000 long....un-decipherable.

When I met Stacey she was working on the Reagan-Bush campaign.

I was the campus rep for Mondale-Ferraro after serving as a McGovern delegate....

It was a match made in heaven.

Not my fault that you are using a Winblow$ computer. I can open it with every text editor, word processor, or spreadsheet on my computer...even Excel 98. All of them think it's ASCII text, tab delimited.

Maybe you just need to pirate better (or newer) software.:D

Oh Art, I am only a mere 81 points behind you. I can't believe that. If I had only learned how to tighten the nut behind the wheel a little earlier in the season :D

well since it was created on a crackinmosh it may not be my software...:D

i got it readable now, thank you.

man, i really need to kick ass, i need 24pts to get past Aaron...best i could hope for is a no-show or a poor performance...as it would theoretically take about 4-6 events with top notch driving each event to catch him. I've got my work cut out with only 2 events left.........maybe i should write messages on my hood at every event :p

I am in the same boat. If Art doesn't show for one event, and I get second or third, he is mine :D

But we all know that will never happen. There is no way he is going to let me get him this late in the season. oh well, there is always next year ;)

I figured out that if I beat the first place guy by 11 seconds at the next two events I can win the class. He could simply not show up, but I doubt that will happen. I've pretty much got 2nd (2nd id 50 points ahead of me, but usually earns 25 points less than me per event). Now if only I could come up with a way to beat him by 11 seconds!

I think even if Art doesn't show you can't get by him. Remember we can drop the lowest 3 results.

you may be right Serge, but i think that he has missed 2 events and I have only missed 1.

Either way, I am not going to catch him this year :mad:

Not that I won't be trying to :D

There is always next year!

I only missed one!

And if the Angel game would have been a night game I wouldn't have missed that one.

Next year my car should be ready.
