Ok, how about I direct you to the URL of the forum, I have uploaded the latest excel workbook that makes the txt files, but alos those in the know have the answers. You do not need to sign in, I'd rather you not. However, there are qualified programmers there, but they don't offer much, if anything at all. No one offers there methods, That is rule one. By doing what I have done, is skirting on the border near the fringe of *how* one wagers. No, don't go there, there is no respect when someone does this, it's frowned upon.
Reason is, Prices become lower because everyone then is using the same method of selecting a winner, weather it wins or loses.
I can assure you, I don't gamble. I have not put on a wager for a very very long time, not until I have this final and vital piece of the process working right. It sends the wager in real time, 30 seconds before the start of the race. To do this manually, day in day out, it causes losses. Another thing, when I do wager, my bookeeping is set at 0.333% of the betting bank, so a start bank of $100 will round up to $1.00 wager, My statistics which run on the 2nd computer daily, shows I'm safe with my method, it's been refined and I'm not guessing or "looking for a winning formula"...I just wanted to say this so you know I'm tire kicking. Everything up to now has been tested, using Excel. The problem is, to tread carefully every step of the way due to the fact the IT side of things constantly change, and that is why the academics don't understand me, why I want it made such a way. Finally, no, I am not making any money from my project yet, no real money, on test, yeah. Once I have it running, and I make money, from those profits, I have other stuff to sort out to.
But for now, it's the "bet sender"
Here is where it's all at, the boys are working on it, it's free, but the IT double speak that baffles me is why you are there.The url is
My user name is***** started that thread and sort of opened a "gate" to we all don't know where it may lead.
There are no PM's there, it's disallowed, they communicate via email, but no one communicates with me,The post numbers of concern so we don't waste any time,are in the following order, and the gentleman helping is as you will see, username is ***** ***** introduced me to python, and insists I learn it. Problem is, he does not understand I am at the ready to wager in real life, and am not prepared to re-create the wheel. That's why I am here, at the ready to pay for this final and vital phase of my project.Start from post No's 91,92, 100 is the first example, I suggest take a look at the uploaded zip, it may answer some of your questions on the "method" regarding the "logic".
Post No's 108,109,110, and 111 is the last post with a cut down and refined version of the test bet sender and what the requirements are, less the things I do not understand.
Just go with the flow.
I will send you the part that makes the daily race list in time order, BEFORE the races have started, this is a requirement for testing the bet-sender, and actually make it work. If one sends a test wager after the race has started, then we will not know if it works other than a negative response from the server.I'll send you a excel file here now anyway so I can test this web site also, it's the same excel file as in post 111.I don't have much more to say, and open to questions and suggestions.
Thank for your timePete ( Australia )
