Stunts Meetings / Re: Argentinian Stunts Meeting - June 2011

1999-08-11, our own solar eclipse - for me, it was a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience.

Yes, I've loved astronomy since I can remember and I've never seen a total solar eclipse live. I'm sure I'd have that same feeling. If it happens to be cloudy (which is unlikely because of the season), I'll travel wherever necessary to watch one, but I really hope I can see it well here :)

I never saw the Northern sky. I was in the Northern hemisphere only once, when I was in Venezuela (yes, that's right, but it was over ten years ago and things weren't yet so terrible there), but I was in the city and at night, lights were so bright that you couldn't see any stars. Anyway, I've heard many people say that the Southern sky is much more interesting, only that I've always seen it. Yes, we have the Southern Cross and the Magellan Clouds.

Again, I want to re-state what I said a few posts above: this eclipse will happen in the afternoon, when the Sun is somewhat near the horizon to the West. Mendoza is near the Andes, which will also be to the West. Because it will be winter, the Sun will be even lower at that time than it is in other parts of the year. What I mean is, there's a chance the eclipse will occur with the Sun behind the Andes if you watch it from Mendoza. Make sure that's not the case!

I've heard about the other eclipse in 2020. It's a little less accessible to me. I have to go to the South and it'll be briefer. But maybe I can go and see it too.

I forgot to post here that I had created the article in the wiki.

And yes, when I created "Internals", it took me some time to think of a name for it. I knew what I wanted it to mean, but couldn't find a simple name. Then, I made up my mind for "internals", although I wasn't supper happy about that name. Later, I saw there was "modding", but it's kind of not the same, so I wasn't sure whether to move everything there or not.

I think "reverse-engineering" is more appropiate, yes. What should I do then?  Or if you want, feel free to do the moving and renaming :)

Oh, and yes, moving this to the other forum... that's a good idea too!

Ah!  I just so you had posted. Sometimes I don't realise there's a new message.
That's very good!  Finally, the beginning of what will be The Registry!  Uhm... if I have to think fast and say what's next, I'd say this: there should be a file one knows to look for that contains the list of the replay hashes and/or file names. Otherwise, I have to know in advance the ID for a specific replay.

And about the contents, it's good. You are able to obtain the track details from the race number, which is contained in this file. Yeah, you could add some track info there, such as the track name, but it's still already accessible indirectly as I said.

In reality, to have the replays and tracks (at least the ones raced in ZakStunts) all in the registry, the only thing you're left to add is lists like what I said. After that, the rest of the matter is an interface, perhaps, so one can navigate the data online comfortably. Now, to be able to incorporate tracks and replays that are not part of ZakStunts, or to add information about tracks that have been raced somewhere else too, yes, something else could be done.

When we talked about the registry in the past, I imagined things like, you'd get to a page that'd be the track's page (not the race page) and see the map and metadata, like track's title, author, creation date, etc. Then below, you'd have the list of events that this track formed part of (whether the information is taken from the track's registry file or from the tournament's or whatever) and you can click on, say, the author, and it shows you what else he has done or on the tournament and you get to the tournament's registry and so on.

I had also considered what it'd be like if one could "submit" a track or replay to the registry independently, that is, not by participating in a race, which would make that automatic. If that were possible, some things have to be taken into account, such as... is this a new track or a version of an existing track?  Does this user have the privileges to submit or change the track?  What happens if I submit a track, then realise there's something I did wrong, so I fix it and want to replace it?  Etc.

Anyway, brainstorming as usual :)

Incredible. I did pretty well in the first race, where I felt I played terribly bad and I was last in the second one, where my feeling was that I was doing very good, ha, ha.

Oh, one less :(

Well, I'm already around here. Then at the given time, we get to the chat?

Great, then! :)

So, like before, will there be a last-moment modification to the tracks to prevent old replays being sent?

Please let us know when an exact date and time are set. My availability is this:

- On Friday, I have this birthday party in the evening, but would be able to race in the afternoon or earlier (like, before 11pm GMT)
- On Saturday, I have the whole day, yet it'd be best if I know what time it'll be in advance
- On Sunday, I have something to do, but I can do it at the time I choose, so it's important to know what time the race will be to arrange
- In general, if the time and date are set in advance, I am available any day
