Nice to see you posting.

Iíve looked at most of the big programs. I cannot imagine something that I could come up with, that they havenít already developed. Especially at this date of maturity. I wonít name names, but we have at least 4 developers on this board that should be greatly admired. They put out some really good stuff. Start shopping

But thatís just me....I guess

After years of entering Brisnet PP data "by hand" into an Excel workbook that I use to create a odds line, I stumbled upon this a few days ago. Best of all, it's free.

Already it has saved me hours of work.

I only wish I'd found it years ago.

Thoroughbred Handicapping the Computer Way by Howard Berenbon seems to be the only book out there on the subject of computer handicapping. I ordered it from Amazon on Oct 1 but it has yet to be shipped. According to the description it uses the Basic language and Excel.

That's the cheaper one, there's another guy on Amazon selling for $1500.

I have that book but haven't looked at it in years. Now you got me curious enough to find it and revisit it. My recollection of the BASIC handicapping programs was that I was less than impressed.

Any rate you can use this site for university level courses in many types of computer programming and other subjects. Some you have to pay for but many are free.

Definitely not.

$9.99 plus 3.99 shipping. Total $14.98 My debit card has not been charged so far. It was supposed to delivered last Wednesday but it was not. Amazon says to take it up with the seller. I don't think he has the book and I don't think he ever had it. I'll probably end up cancelling the order if I can. $13.98 is not going to break me.

I've never had this happen with Amazon before.

Meanwhile another source (not Amazon) claims to have a copy for $97. I won't be buying that one.

Just out of curiosity, where did you find one for $662 ?

We are in very similar situations. Turned 62 in September and lost my job due to "budget cuts" last January. Tough world out there. I was going to develop some handicapping software to sell but the market is so small that it wasn't worth my time. Currently in career change mode which I don't feel like doing but really have no choice.

For you I suggest...winning money betting the ponies.

On the other hand I have found several for sale at various online sites, all asking for about $100. Maybe I could buy one, read it, then resell it.
