Using the FREE program

Get the Newest Program here.

http://localpcpros.com/FASTV7.exe

Here we can discuss HOW everyone is using the program =) as requested.

I have to stop changing it now or my wife will divorce me since it is the only thing she uses, she loves all the improvements we have all contributed but is tired of seeing something new each time.

So lets consider it done.

As always...

A word about printing, it works great in firefox, (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/produc...=win&lang=en-US) if you print preview and choose "Shrink To Fit"

Thanks again to all of you =)

Doug


P.S.

If it does not work try adding these to your system....

(dot) net
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...&displaylang=en

VB runtimes
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/192461

Library files
http://www.ascentive.com/support/new/libraryfiles.exe

BTW- hint, when you print like I do to the free Bullzip PDF printer from the internet browser, since the report is in HTML
http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php#download

Be sure to go to...

Tools->Internet Options->Advanced, scroll to PRINTING
checkbox, "Print background Images and Colors"

Even if you are printing to a "real" printer.

Also this is a great PDF tool for "Marking Up the PDF"
http://www.docu-track.com/downloads/users/
Get the free pdfXchange viewer.

This was all tested when opened in Internet Explorer 8 set as the default browser on 32 bit Vista.

I have been told it works fine on XP, Vista 64 bit and even Linux through wine.

The Pace Advantage Toolbar I made some time ago that needs some updating is here (no spyware)
http://handicappers.ourtoolbar.com/

and an app I made for my IPOD TOUCH/IPHONE is here...
http://localpcpros.com/handicappers.xml
Just open this link with the ipod and save it to the main screen.

This is ALL FREE.

Sorry there was a programming error (I mentioned on the last thread that I noticed trying to explain what made up the fast fig) so any of the older ones will come out with different numbers.

more accurate and most likely "tighter" on a scale.

I'm going with the 3. In 84 races @ 6f, at this meet, 42% have gone wire to wire, and the preferred R/S is E. So with that knowledge, and the program numbers, I will go with the 3 to WIN, and the 3 over/under the 1,4,8.

Fight
While the 2 does have a 6 point edge in the FaST #'s, He is 7 points behind on the dirt #'s (using TSN files). That's when I have to either dig deeper or pass the race. I could also make a case for Doug's choice. If he is 8-1 or better at PT. Within his last few starts, he has matched or exceeded PAR for final time @ today's distance and class level.The only horse in the race that has done so. He also is 2 of 4 at this track, and 4 of 10 at this distance. Plus, has the best TOTAL pace rating. ALL of this is what makes this game so complicated.
See my other post for what I will probably play. If the #1 is 8-1 or better @ PT, it could alter my bet.

Good Luck.

I used the BRIS single file DRF in the Version 7 of the program for todays 8th.

if you are doing exactly that and getting different numbers then that is very odd?

Looks like a rounding issue to me. Could be that different CPUs yield slightly different results?? Or maybe the O/S?

================================================== ====

Maybe,I suppose it could round differently.

Fight, did you try downloading it over again to the same place as the older one and executing it, that should overwrite the old one, just top be sure ???
