Welcome to Omnibits for Wednesday, 17 September (Day 7)
continues this morning and the Artistic Events begin. I believe 16-Way
starts this afternoon. I expect to see the Artistic Events finish all
their jumping today, but the judging my extend into next month.
videos are ONLINE! Go watch the Golden Knights Round 7. Not their
highest scoring jump of the day, but I believe their best performance.
operators -- sorry, the hammer is down! That's the message you'll get
if you try to replay a video that's not 16:9. I've begged and asked
politely and asked less than politely and I've posted signs on the wall
by the copy stations and put it in the videographer's briefing -- please set your cameras to 16:9 resolution. You had fair warning :)
0930Artistics judging is in progress and 8-Way just finished Round 9. The medal places seem to be settled in all three events ...
on the 8-Way videos: they're up only through Round 7 (and a few in
Round 8). The remaining rounds will be uploaded later today.
11008-Way is DONE.
1300AE and 16-Way ... and the S&A staff are kicking their tires getting ready for this weekend ...
1600Daydreaming of the year that goes by when USPA doesn't change the Artistic rules...
I'm aware of the problem with the 16-Way standings ... it's fixed now
... more on that tomorrow ... 8-Way awards going on right now ...

had a horrible personal experience late today. I'd already delt with
several visits from Murphy, when late in the afternoon, I was handed
the only kind I really fear: incorrect results.
presses, have a heart attack kind of results -- incorrectly sorted
standings. Everywhere -- on the Internet, on the DZTV, on the
hardcopies the CJ was signing. This is the penultamate form of
competition results, the one kind you have to get right.
goodness I started using Git for my configuration management. I reset
my branch back one commit, rebuilt and got the right results.
Gawd only knows what I did to b0rke it ... when off we go to figure out how I'm going to handle what happens in 10-way after the score has been determined. Woo-hoo!!!
Thanks for tuning in, please
patronize our sponsors, and give special thanks to our head honcho
sponsor, Skydive Arizona, without whom you wouldn't be reading a damn
