What I am doing at the moment is just "UI" this "HORSE,3,10:23,3,4,5,6,7,8"

My LINUX box has a TNC hanging off it and just looks for a UI frame with the
word "HORSE" in it.

It then split up the data into check point, time and horse numbers.

If they send again - who cares, MySQL just overwrites - it an update not
insert statement.

No error checks, but high insert rates

  Gudday

  We recently did a horse enduro, where we used voice to send in numbers and
times as the horses went past our check point.

  Thinking out aloud, I wondered if it was possible to send the scores into
HQ using packet.

  I have been trowing a few ideas around. Wondering if anyone has some
comments ?

  1) Use LINUX and the HQ and use packet to go straight into a mysql
database
  2) Use TCP/IP over packet to browse to the form on the windows laptops in
the field
  3) Make a terminal server at HQ where people connect, leave scores and
then bail out
  4) Using APRS messgaing (UI) style of score sending
  5) Just blindly broadcast scores and HQ hears and puts in database.

  In most cases we seem to be heading for a LINUX server at HQ, and windows
laptops in the field.

  Ideas ?
