I'd like to personally apologize to anyone who's tried to email me in
the last three weeks; I've been really swamped. We're moving offices at
work, and I had a trip on the 4th-7th and sheesh, sometimes it just goes
I have yet to purchase a single present, despite the fact that my
parking at work is actually in a mall's garage.
So today I sat down and wrote in some features that I've been wanting to
do for myself for a while. I hope they're useful to you as well. And I
hope everyone enjoys, or at least sufficiently tolerates, whichever
december holidays they celebrate, if any.
=====CHANGES RELEASED 12.17.08======
- Added under the Breaks screen a way to easily re-break a round if
you've screwed something up in breaking. This option lets you
either clear the last elim in an event of all the kids
(maintaining preset judge assignments and rooms) or just delete
the round altogether.
- Added a function in the comp edit screen to switch a competitor's
event quickly without having to do the drop & add rigamarole.
- Added support to ask coaches register piece titles on a per-event
basis. Piece titles will appear in the output for Register->
Events both printed and on screen. The system does not yet
support paneling NFL districts, so it will not take identical
piece titles into account to avoid students doing the same piece
hitting each other in rounds.
- Postings for rounds with more than 3 judges or 6 kids in the round
used to bleed over onto a 2nd page. This was annoying; I fixed it
so now you need more than 8 kids and/or 6 judges to cause a 2 page
- Added a feature under Panel->Judges that will allow you to set, on
a round-by-round basis, how many judges you want in a given round
of an event. This setting is for tournaments like the Holly which
have a surplus of underused judges but not quite enough to do 2
judges panels in every room. Using these settings, you now have
the option to set a tournament up such that every student gets 4
or 5 ballots during 3 prelim rounds, for example.
