Topic: wireless scoring to everyone's laptop
How cool would it be if we could access the main scoring computer from one's own laptop in the pits using 802.11? I got the OK from Jay to research that idea. I think having live scoring broadcast to the pits would add some content to the race. I know there is a wealth in information in this group of racers/computer freaks. So, who knows what hardware we can use to this end? I figure we need about 1000 feet of range. Also, we're on our own (donations) when it comes to aquiring the hardware. If it works out, I think each region will have to supply the transmitter as we can't expect Jay to pack one to each race. The output from the scoring computer will be vga. That's it...vga to 802.11...1000ft! Shouldn't be that hard or expensive.
