Re: It's About Time C

The issue with Windows Media Player is known to us, but unfortunately as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, we can't control exactly what all the event supervisors use. The sounds files on the national website are the same as last year. You can find them here: http://soinc.org/its_about_time_c I ju...

Re: It's About Time C

I agree that the rules state that this is not purely physics event and questions can cover wide variety of areas concerning time; however, I would have liked to see questions that require knowledge of the subject rather than facts around the subject. For example, rather than asking "who invented de...

Re: It's About Time C

I faintly know about that story, but from what I see...couldn't the team have gotten a different time? After all, it's the difference between the recorded time and the actual time, that's counted for scoring, delta t, not the actual t value. Just for future potential situations, could that have bee...

As I've mentioned before, I'm the National Event Supervisor for It's About Time and am always receptive to suggestions...

Suggestions / Feedback on Time?

Good job to everyone who was in Augusta last weekend. I saw a very impressive variety of devices, some of which were amazingly accurate. There also was a good spread on the test scores, which meant I didn't have to utilize the tiebreaker question. We are near the end of the process of making revisio...

Re: Its about time

And I brought it to their attention also. I'm don't know if the method used to generate the time intervals involved traceability to any time standard. Even if the tones were generated by a calibrated source, the method used to record them may not have been calibrated, and the method of playback cer...
