Gord, how do you update the list? Do you have room on your server, can you add 0-60 times, can you set up a remote interface for me to Administer it until we pass it on?

Damn, now I gotta go dig out that time slip. And this was my idea in the first place. I'll shoot myself later.

It is fairly simple to update. It is just basic html table and web code. Here is what would need to be added for every entry (copied and pasted from the one before - then edited):

<tr height=24>
<th>GXP05</th>
<th>2005 GXP</th>
<th>13.9 @ 108 mph</th>
<th>Time Slip</th>
</tr>

The Blue is the link to thier profile, the rest should be self explanitory.

As far as administoring it I would have to look into creating some admin account to ftp up the files. If you have ftp rights to BC (not sure if you do or not) you could host it there as well. Otherwise I'd be glad to host it for now.

So is it going to be like the example site, or are the times going to be in different categories such as Timeslip, G-Tech, Stopwatch, and Unverified. I am just wondering.

And are you going to put a link for this at the top with the links for forum, tech info, etc...., or is it going to be somewhere else?

Gordy, let'* set something up hosted at MNBC for now, then move it over when it settles in.

dbtk2, not sure how I'm gonna sort it yet. Some depends on what Gordy sets up, but I'd like to play around with it. This is new, so it will probably change as we figger it out.

I'd like to at LEAST get started with a simple spreadsheet......but I have no entries yet.

You tell me what you want for a layout Will, and I'll do my best to make it happen. The one I made was just a quick rendition of what can be done. It can (and most likely will) evolve over time getting better and better as it gets bigger and badder!

As for hosting, I will gladly host it on MNBC until the time comes BC admins/mods are ready to impliment it ino their existing site. I still need to look into getting an account setup (if possible, but likely) that will allow the appropriate acces to the site to update the list.

As for the moch up I made, and comments, suggestions, feedback at all on it? Anything you like or would want changed?

Yours looks great, but just add the 0-60 time. Probably order it automatically by 1/4 mile time if possible....or by 0-60 AND 1/4 mile or something. One thing I don't want to do is have two lists for NA and SC. Too cumbersome.

For the time being, I'll get a spreadsheet going that we can migrate when the database is ready. BUT I STILL HAVE NO ENTRIES!
