You should have good results by enlarging your browser's windows to full screen in 800 x 600 pixels mode and setting 10 points fonts.

To display results, don't forget to press 'Reload' button to refresh pages (they are updated whenever new arrivals are registered).

Each day, infos about the day's task should be available after the briefing which begins at 10:30 and be online at about noon. Performance results (i.e. standings with only time, not the points, because it would not be significant when all pilots have not landed yet) begin to be displayed after opening of the start line and shows pilots in reverse order of start time with elapsed time at publication. When at least one pilot made it home, it is indicated before which time the others should arrive to win the day, or the time in excess of the winner's if winning is no longer possible.

As a rule of thumb, you can guess than 1 minute is worth 10 to 12 points in most tasks, except if there are too many outlandings.

Performance then unofficial results will come later, when all pilots went home or reported their outlanding (at the moment it takes too much time, because transmission between scoring and web is not yet possible, but it should improve)

Usually when you click on the link "Results" you will see the latest results available of the day, for each class, but you may click on previous days or results.

To reduce downloading time, it may be a good idea to enlarge your cache on disk to keep files and images that don't change from day to day ; if you are on a slow link you might uncheck box "Automatically load image" on your browser.
