Data Tracker updated!
TTCO, hmm we havent 5th CP in data tracker. I have wait for DT update because I want to analyze my chicane technic..
Well, that's not going to happen, sorry... When I designed the DT there was an agreement (for techical reasons I won't get into now) between me and Jahombre that the maximum number of checkpoints per track is 4 (3+start). Unfortunately, somehow for this track we both missed the fact that this track had 5 checkpoints.
Also, a few weeks back I said that there is probably an DT update coming in the next few weeks... I didn't forget that, but here is the thing: when I was just starting the DT project, I didn't even imagine that it would grow in size as it did (number of queries, complexity, number of users, data entries, etc.). So, some of the underlying methods and techniques used were more or less experimental, I used them to learn some new technologies... As a result, the DT itself is now far more complex (technically) than it could and should be, and adding a new query requires, well, a lot of tedious and (frankly) unnecessary work... If I had the time I would start working on a completely redesigned DT, from the start, but since I'm working now, time is a very precious resource... Sigh...
