Hi,

Anyone know what site has the historical real-time WTT data available? I have been trying to download the remaining schedules to be added in for trains serving Dunblane and Polmont from RTT but each time I try and save them my PC freezes for 2 minutes at a time. If it keeps that up I will be here all of tomorrow.

Please could someone either:

1. Download the Dunblane and Polmont trains for 023nd August (as on RTT) and email them, as a ZIP file (openeable with WinZip) to the address at the end of this message

or

2. If downloading the trains i question is not on then please advise what site could I use for this now? I need the historical data which contains many VAR and STP workings, otherwise this TT will not be as acurate as I would like and therefore not get finished. I have 584 trains to date, however, so I would be gutted to have to scrap this.

My email is

(not my main address: I have 2)

Work has had a good part in the failure to finish this as well: when I have had days off I have done 40 trains a day or thereabouts. But I drive for a living and have often got home to tired to work on the TT.

Cheers,
Dave

(PS: I was using one of the DownloadThemAll type extensions of Google Chrome, which is my web browser.)

For someone to assist you, could you clarify the date you are looking for, as I think you've typed an extra character in the key place in your original message!
God bless, Daniel Wilson

Are you sure that's where the problem lies? Have you tried it in Firefox yet, as I see on the DownloadThemAll Chrome isn't supported. To quote from their FAQ:


"As more and more people are asking us for a DownThemAll! version for Google Chrome:

We won’t support Google Chrome (and Chromium for that matter) in the near future, if ever.

There are multiple reasons not to support Google Chrome (at the moment)"

Interesting. I would like to know a rough idea of what those "multiple reasons" are. As it is the extension I used was called "GetThemAll".

Correct Peter. Sorry for not spotting the error. Thank you for the email and the attachments.

If you're interested in why, they say this:

While support for some types of extensions was added to Chrome just recently, the extension system in Chrome simply doesn’t cut it. It is only very limited in what you can do. Right now there is no way to port dTa over without losing the majority of functionality.
Even if there were the technical means to port dTa! to Google Chrome, we still wouldn’t have the time and resources to support it.
Right now we’re in the middle of university studies or only recently completed our degrees and hence need to “settle” for a real-life work. Some of us are now family men.

As you clearly noticed the number of dTa! releases was always low with only a major release once a year. Due to these time constraints we don’t think we can handle supporting yet another application.

We are not yet sure about the privacy in Chrome. Chrome itself is closed source (not to confuse with the Chromium basis, which is open source) and it can only be guessed what happens “behind the scenes”. Google Chrome is known to transmit data back to the google servers. This kept us away from using Google Chrome, although we watched the progress made so far.
Lastly, we are still Mozilla supporters.
While this surely won’t keep us away from a Chrome port, it surely does not provide us with a lot of motivation to code for Google Chrome.
Not only is Firefox the superior browser in our opinion, the Mozilla Foundation and Co. and the great people in the Mozilla community – developers, translators, designers, users and all the other folks – and the truly “open” mindset keep us in the Mozilla base. ;)
