    Yes. That would provide some stability.

    Am I the only one that's a bit concerned that Chris hasn't been online in two months?

    No. I am very concerned and at this point treat the software as abandoned.

    I am getting a new error when importing from MSR. Step 1 works fine and i get my list of events, but when I click to import from any of them, I get this SSL Redirect Bad URI Error

    Any ideas?

    Duh. Posting the results to RMLive fixed it.

    We had two events yesterday and for some reason, they are not showing up on the live.axti.me website.

    They showed up yesterday. We did the first event in the morning, then changed the date back to the 17th and made a new event for the 19th.

    Any ideas? Of course, I left the T&S laptop at home so I can't check anything on it. :(

    The Yaggi kit from us (SPS) or Farmtek includes the parts you show above and the extension cable.

    We started bundling the stand as well just to make it easier...http://www.soloperformance.com/Yaggi-Style-Directional-Antenna-for-Farmtek-Timer-Electronic-Eyes-with-Stand_p_12255.html

    It all depends on each person or clubs piece it together versus save a few bucks limit is. The end result is the same.

    The important part is to get the antenna's on both ends up off the ground quite a bit. If it is too low, the signal scatters off the ground. I suspect that this is sometimes the issues with range on setups without external antennas.

    Ditto the sentiments above. Health and Family over-ride everything else!

    And we are super glad the product is staying relevant, I was not looking forward to switching.

    Has anyone heard from Chris?

    We are looking at some format changes for next year that will require some of the features promised in 3.0 (multiple day events and or two events on one day)

    AXTI.me is great software, but if it is abandoned, I am going to have to switch to something else.

    There are several things with the Farmtek's to watch out for....(My company SPS sells the timers)

    -Sensor Height. 10-12 inches works for everything (usually). This is lower than the "stock" tripods FYI and the stock height will give issues with karts. Too low is also a problem as only the tires of a car may trip and really low will lead into signal bounce problems off the crown on the road. Problems here almost always only show up at finish since the speed is higher.

    -Batteries. Fresh batteries. New ones every day. Seriously, how much are 9v batteries? :)

    -Make sure they are lined up as accurately as possible, Yeah, you can usually throw them down and they work, but I see them all the time not really lined up, or just barely, with one pointing off to the side or down.

    -Antennas - I really recommend that at a minimum, you have the omni directional antenna for the base unit and Yaggi for any more than 100-150 feet away. The stuff is not expensive from Farmtek, and even cheaper if you source and build it yourself.

    -Flip the eyes - sometimes the sun will get the receiver eye just right and all the sudden you will get missed or false trips. Swap the eyes side to side when this happens.

    Hope this helps.

    It would depend on how you do the second event setup. A majority of our entrants run both sessions, so a straight copy works pretty good for us, There is no harm in having extra entrants in the system for the second event.

    But, in theory, we could have two completely separate sets of entrants for an AM and PM sessions, in which case, event copy really doesn't do anything.

    Any ETA on V3 and/or a feature list? Note, there is no wrong answer here...."When I get to it", "2017" are all acceptable. This software is not terribly expensive, is feature rich and as of yet, we aren't even paying maintenance.

    I have a big event at the end of April and then won't have another until October....
