Uh, I've got IE 6 and the little ads under the labels work just fine. Perhaps you have an ad blocking firewall?

Well, really the data I would want you to see would be statistical, meaning average and standard deviation, possibly also grouped by claimed riding style, location etc. The actual raw numbers probably don't matter as much as how the compare to one another. If one tire is averaging 6,000 miles and another 8,000, it is likely the 2nd one will also last longer for you. The fact that the numbers wind up being 15,000 and 22,000 for you isn't as important but will affect that average.

Default Java or Bust!

Okay, this is pretty important so that I can figure out if I spend next weekend actually creating this for the site. I am a java guy. I can probably finish this in 1-2 days for you using java. I don't know PHP and have no need to learn it as it is not very germane to what I do on a daily basis. If you guys want it in PHP, you will need to find another volunteer.



As I stated before the actual presentation engine in open source, so it there would be no licensing fees associated with running the system.



As to proof of purchase, I think we could simply handle (at least for tires) the flaming pretty easily, since the only way to really through off the numbers would be to enter a whole bunch of of the same tires under your name which would wind up indicating a problem to anyone who looked closely at the data.



For Version 1 of the system I would propose to only track tires as we are mostly looking for hard data such as milage. If that works well, V2 can expand into more "fuzzy" data such as helmet quality etc.

They work fine for me and I'm one of those who had problems with the 600 shootout! (different problem, I know) And I only have IE 5.0 too..........Maybe a firewall blocker as someone suggested.

That would be it. Turned off the ole' firewall and the ads have shown themselves. I thought that they may have built an actuall FORUM for MO users to comunicate and sell things with each other. Silly me, they were just a bunch of crappy ads that I don't want to look at anyways. At least I know I'm not missing anything. One day MO will realize that they NEED a forum, if they want people to keep their subscriptions. It's really the only thing that seperates a web based magazine from the print, besides a few video clips and a few extra pictures. If all the people who have subscribed can't talk with each other openly then it's kind of pointless. At least it's only 11 bucks a year.
