Markku, aka ‘hmm’ on SOL has kindly given me a subdomain on his server – agage.sol.hmm.iki.fi – somewhere to host Flash applications written for use with Sailonline. As I mentioned, I originally intended for the Optimal Angles Tool to be online using Flash instead of something you needed to download (like the AIR version) for a number of reasons – I can update it easily if I need to & You can access it anywhere (SOLing at work? Local NetCafe?). So now this site is done, a themed version of the Optimal Angles Tool (this is the original Flash, NOT the updated AIR version allowing multiple race login -but you can open 2 or more of them instead) has been posted there. Go here to use the tool, and bookmark it! 😉 In time I will add an index page with links to the tools available there.
Another up-shot of hosting the tools online is that the downloading of any data to the tool from SOL should be much faster – using the ‘pipes’ between hmm.iki.fi and sailonline.org – instead of your local internet connection
