Nah, they messed it up and started making the serial port useless with 2000.. I have an ME machine, and it has the port, but doesn't work. I will stick with the old TI Extenza running W98.

I have laptops with 98SE, since, it's "more betterer" than just 98.
;-)

I loved XP Pro, I deal with 10.

As field service, I had 95, 98SE, all service packs (most on thumbdrives) but had some stuff on floppies since I ran into some OS's that didn't support USB (like, Windows NT).

Yep, I have a bunch of Model 20s and 25s. And L-Navs and S-Navs, too.


And when you whine on RAS about OLC not taking your GPS-NAV files, it's
both sad and a source of amusement at the same time.

If someone tries to use them for badges/records, I suppose they'd have
to find someone who can still handle the calibration.

Glad I can provide amusement for you, kinsell. I may have a short memory, but I don't recall whining about it on RAS for a while. I am sure you can take the time to find exactly when it was. I think I have discovered the issue I was having, and now have it resolved. Without having to buy something newer that doesn't work as well as the system I currently have.

As far as calibration, I think any lab will tell you it is simple. Just like any other logger, for that matter.

Thanks to search engines, it was a July 2017 posting I was remembering:


Yeah, I know I should "buy a new logger". But, I fly old sailplanes.
:-) Anyone had success uploading a file from a Model 20 and getting a
valid score? I am 0 for 3. The first two, I wrote off to too few
satellites a couple of times during the flight. Didn't have that issue
today, but still a big red V.

I am using the same conversion program I used last year, and it says it
is making a valid file. It worked fine last year, but doesn't now.
Maybe they would like me better if I gave them money? And, please, no
"Use Skylines" comments.

Suggestions welcome.

Steve Leonard






Also came across the 2012 thread where OLC stopped accepting GPS-NAV
files for a while (not sure how long that lasted), and the 2014
discussion when the date problems started showing up. Since you can
record OLC-acceptable files now with a $10 app, it seems to me to be a
bit of false economy to stick with the old stuff. To each his own.

Knew you could do it. :-)

As for "false economy", the phone I have won't run the $10 App, so I would need a different phone. It will also have a more expensive monthly phone plan, too. Keep working on the "false economy" argument if you like... Also, the phone won't interface with my L-Nav, so I still need to keep my "old junk" working to get what I really want, which is integrated variometer and glide computer in the cockpit. OLC is neat and great fun. Especially when something like this happens.

There are plenty of cool things to see in the sky. We all need to get out and see more of them.

Tough to get rid of antiques (an example outside of soaring: Sidekick 99) if nobody has produced a replacement.

I was keeping a couple XP systems around for a different program,
outside of soaring. Then one day one of the free anti-virus programs
loaded an update that destroyed the systems. Assumed at the time it was
M$ pushing a poison pill, but found out later it was AVG or Avast, can't
remember which.
