If I get up before Steve, I generally find nothing to see on http://audaxclubhackney.co.uk/tg.html

Is there an easy way to view
"Yesterday's track/stats" or
"The most recent complete day"
?

I use the link every day; it's often the only way to see what Steve and Kurt are doing without waiting 24 or more hours

so keep it stickyicky please  :)

No - the existing page just loads data directly from the Trackleaders site, and that sort of information isn't present there. I would need to start storing this on my own server, something I started work on last winter but then got distracted by other events - I thought it would all be over by Christmas.

I had wondered the same Matt so I had a play over the holidays.  I cannot offer the full IvanScience experience but I can offer this:

At the risk of stating the bleedin obvious increment 368 each day.

No warranty is offered, no assurance of service implied.  It's automated to upload a screenshot each day from a computer 120 miles away from me through the week, a computer I have no remote access to.  It will go wrong, when it does there may be a cat involved.

Marvellous!
How does it work - do you take a snapshot at midnight every day?
(in which case the only weakness is rides ending after midnight ...  but hey, nothing's perfect)

p.s. thanks for the reply Ivan :)

Scheduled event to take a screenshot every night at 01:50 using NirSoft ScreenShoter (needs the reg frig mentioned on their site).  Then a second scheduled event at 01:55 (could have been merged, CBA) starts a batch script to rename the file with the day number, spew an ftp command file then launch the ftp command sequence.

Easy once I gave up trying to fight photobucket to host the files and signed up for a decent web host.  [mini rant]  Why is it so hard to to find a photo/file/web host that allows FTP access?  The clue is in the name; File Transfer Protocol.  Guess what that is the perfect tool for... [/mini rant]

Not an elegant solution but it works.  Cats notwithstanding.

FTP was perfect in the 70s. It's horribly dated now and a right pain in the arse security wise (plaintext authentication, password only authentication, separate control and data ports, etc).

lol, furry muff, I know nothing of the back end on the scale of a muti user multi stream system.  As a bear of limited brain and techno-born in the early eighties I cling to old stuff thats small and stupid enough I can get me head all the way around it such that I can grok the threat surface.  Flash, java, javascript etc are just worm cans to me. 

Kinda like why I don't have remote access, I could set it up but I seriously doubt my ability to secure it.

Latest tracker (since I couldn't find it in this thread):-

I've knocked something up on the tracking front using Steve's spot feed: http://frrt.org/tg/. I'm splitting his track each midnight and treating each day as a separate 'rider', so the list linked at the top of that page acts as a kind of archive. By default that map only shows the current day to make it readable, and there is another view here which you might prefer: http://frrt.org/tg/r/1-steve/map.

Thanks very much Ivan. That makes it so much easier to access and feel involved with what Steve is doing. I'll feel guilty if I go to bed while he is still out on the road.

This is my favourite view - http://frrt.org/tg/r/1-steve - as it shows today's distance as well as the map, profile and average speed.

Learning to use SCP/SFTP would seem worthwhile.  It's functionally similar to FTP, secure, and only needs a normal SSH server at the remote end.
