    Will be away from the f5 desk today for the first half of the day (last remnants of house move to attend to)...

    Ya'all keep the f5ire burnin' here at virtual DAKAR central and have a great day (play nice together :wink:).

    Good luck to all the competitors today, I hope to jump back in front of the hose by mid stage or a bit there after... So if anyone feels they want to take the "f5ire in the hole" starters pistol into their keyboards hands... do it? :clap

    But don't get it out of synch (with the DAKAR clock and actual start instant)... :evil that f5 juju is powerful stuff if it's misshandled. :lol3

    Have a great stage, ride fast, smart... and don't fall off the keyboard! :rofl

    Not at all worried. Its part of our strategy.
    Word on the street is this year is like none other. No point missing the last stage by misadventure early on.

    Aussie66 needs a definite penalty. :lol3

    Neil awesome mapping skills.

    Go boys..

    Dakar.com STILL does not list CASELLI in the current general rankings. They show #29 and "()". Hmmm...

    Just another case of taking days to catch up?

    This site of their's does:

    http://gaps.dakar.com/2013/dakar/stage-01/aso/ukie.php

    Click on the Stage Tab, three over from the "Virtual Standing" Tab

    You can also get to it from the "Live Tracking" Button on the Dakar.com site.

    I have a french friend, so penalties dont hit me hard. And otherwise I have a spanish friend who may also be austrian with a big moustache who can also help in times of trouble.

    ANd beleive me, I have kept it morally acceptable as there are more than sufficient photo's of her available in bathing suits etc. Miss Poland 2011 etc etc.

    Now After the ASO has reconvened, I accept thier sincere apology and applaud thier humility for retracting my penalty.

    Merci beaucoup Ami's

    Please not I did not start this slide in morals.

    85 km of liaison, 1,5 hour.
    250 km, roughly 3,5 hours for the fast boys and 5 hours for the mortals.

    Its going to be interesting.

    Good morning,

    Thanks again for all support! First day was a nice F5-test and the site survived very well. I think I need some more power though, so I just ordered me some extra server power. I doubled the CPU capacity, so hope it's enough to survive coming days :evil

    Enjoy the stage and I'll be around.

    Regards,
    Mischa

    Mischa! Dont forget to multiply stage 1 time with 5(bikes, quads(?)) and 3(cars,trucks).
    Would be a nice feature to have starting times also. A countdown for every rider would be perfect.

    Thanks a lot for all of your work!

    Hi there. I think times are already multiplied? Check the serveral options:

    live timing - live waypoints (like live tracking on the official site)
    checkpoints - official checkpoint times (sometimes times appear earlier here, so check them both)
    standings - official standings

    Sometimes standings switches to "stage standings" in the bar below. I will fix that in the next hour or so.

    As soon as the race starts the starting times appear in the "position" column. I have to make some adjustments to bring them earlier, but didn't have time yet to do that. Count down could be nice, but hmm... lets try when I have some spare time left somewhere.

    I will also make some sitemap with some explanation where you see what. I think the site needs it :-)

    Regards,
    Mischa
