Re: Endorsement checker question
A little insight into the software issue. The endorsement
checker is not working, the contest checking software is having to
be modified by K9DWR for every contest, the membership application
software is not working. (I am getting the applications, but, the
approval is not working.) I am currently approving all
applications by hand. So far I have been able to access the
membership spreadsheet on Google Docs with no problems. (Google
is the entity that deprecated some of their Application
Programming Interface (API) methodology.
The software error that is being generated is not a new one. I have seen this exact error in the past, and it involves software not owned by the club, but by KJ4IZW (his old call, he has a new one now). We do not have access to his scripts to attempt a "fix". I am of the opinion that David can fix the problem, but he is incommunicado with anyone at this time.
The current leadership of the club is diligently working to "get everything back on track". David Rock is doing an excellent job of making sure we have contest scorers available for each of our contests. Software development is a slow process, and he does have a full time job that only allows him to work on club software on a part-time basis, and he does have other familial activities that take up valuable time. Currently, we do not have the ability to provide the instant scores presented like contests in the past. Other members of the leadership are taking the results provided by the new scorers, verifying the data by hand, and compiling the results which are given to the membership in email form.
We WILL persevere, we will get there eventually. Patience is
requested from the members while the issues are being addressed.
Just like the current health issues worldwide, we will strive to
overcome all obstacles, and the best PSK club worldwide will
Operate PSK, and have fun!
