Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

I apologize if this has already been covered but a forum search netted no results and I didn't really want to read through 31 pages of posts.

I've been using scorecard for full year now (getting ready to start the 2nd year).

One thing I'd like to know is how do you upload your scores to the web? Actually, the more appropriate question would be where can you upload to the web?

Do I have to buy space on a server?

Thanks.

Most likely, yes.

There are some free web hosts out there, but most of them seem to suck and put ads all over your site.

There are some awfully cheap web hosts out there. I host mine on my .Mac account, and I'd be paying the $79/year even if I never used their web hosting capabilities, so it's like getting it for free.

I can't recommend any free hosts as I've never had to use one recently, but perhaps others can.

Any updates on 2.0? The snow is nearly gone and I'm holding off my purchase of Scorecard until 2.0 is released since I seem to remember a notice saying that 2.0 would be a paid upgrade. Thanks!

We're working on it.

I'll make everyone here a deal if you've not bought Scorecard yet.

Deal's over. Here are the people who took advantage. Due to some recent abuse, I'm closing this offer down. These people are of course still eligible.

Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

Quick question,

Is there a way to define/configure a different directory for the database file?

No, it's hard coded to go to the proper place. Aliases (Mac OS X) and shortcuts (Windows) work, though, if you want to store it somewhere else. Just alias the proper directory.

Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

The reason I ask is that I would like to be able to install the program on a thumb drive or be able to share the database over my network in some way.

Some days I use my laptop in the house and other times I am at my office computer in another part of the house. My office computer is not always turned on during the weekends or at night.

I would like to have Scorecard on both computers and have them both updated with the same database. Maybe even an option to store the database online at my own web space ?

Any ideas ?

And I gave you the answer. Put the database and license wherever you'd like, and alias or shortcut the directory in the automatic stored location.

That's what I do. Just alias or shortcut the directory. It worked for me when I had my Scorecard files on my iDisk, and it works for me when I have the files on my Dropbox.

The latter's free - use that:
https://www.getdropbox.com/home

For any further support issues, please email us.

OK that works great...

I had no idea Shortcuts would work like that. I was always under the impression that shortcuts were for humans to use, never thought about using it to direct a program to a file location.

Anyway I put the database file into a directory in My Document and made shortcuts for both the laptop copy and and the office copy of Scorecard.

I will look into the offline file shortcuts later, for now this works great.

Thanks again

Erik,

I looked at the site, and screenshots....this looks promising for identifying some weaknesses. A few things:

If I download the 5 round trial, and subsequently purchase Scorecard, can those entries be saved?

Also, can you currently enter 9 hole rounds, or is that in the upcoming 2.0 upgrade?

Thanks!

Nothing happens to them. They're not "saved" or "thrown away" at all - they're just used. Your data file isn't moved, altered, etc. when you buy a license.

In other words, you use the trial for five rounds, buy a license, and all that happens is that you're allowed to enter more than five rounds in. The five you entered in already remain intact.

Not really, nope. Coming in the 2.0 upgrade, which we're close to releasing in private beta.

Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

will the 'upgrade' to 2.0 for 1.0 users be less than buying it new if you didn't already have scorecard 1.0? I saw that whole couple posts about getting a deal got shut down, just wasn't sure, now that thats over, what the scenario is.

The upgrade will probably be $15. Our policy is that our upgrades will not be > 50% the cost to buy the app new.

Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

oh alright. As for 9 hole support, will that mean you can use the 9 hole rounds towards all of your statistics too?

Discussed here IIRC.

Sneak peek at something coming in 2.0:



Obviously with someone who's a little less consistent, it'll show a bit more.

Re: Scorecard: Golf Statistics Software (Mac/Windows)

Wow, looks great! This is a neat feature.

By the way, that sprained toe must've really hurt, eh?
