[RC] Fwd: An enduring question. - Maryanne Stroud Gabbani

This was posted to another more general equine list that I belong to and Graham said to go ahead and forward it here. Graham is a legit techie who lives in Australia (Canberra) and is interested in endurance there. I, for one, would love to see other people than the UAE developing database systems just to keep the playing field a bit more level. The computerised system that the UAE gives out so freely has a number of shortcomings that I have been able to see in its use here and is very possible to fiddle. So Michael et al, give him an email and see what you all can come up with. You'll like him.

G'day all,

This is directed mostly at any of you who might be involved in the
endurance world in America or any other part of the world for that
matter. (Non endurance people feel free to answer if you have any good
answers too.)

A friend of mine and I are developing some software to run endurance
rides. It runs on a network with several PCs placed around the base camp
performing different functions. It's a multi user server based database
system and we may be incorporating the possibility of automatic timing on
start/finish/vet gates.

What I'd like to know is, does anyone know of any similar sophisticated
systems that do a similar job? If you do I'd be interested to hear about

We ran a beta test of version 1.0 (a very early "see what happens"
version) last weekend at the Australian championships in Canberra.
Results were quite encouraging. If you're interested to see the results,
and some of the output of the system, look here:
