    City Time Standards
    Mood:  happy
    Topic: Times & Records
  • City Time Standard chart - (xls) - (PDF)
  • NPD2007 Time Standard file - (std) - 15/18 set to actual City times: tag CTY*
  • NPD2000 Original Time Standard - (ZIP) - 15/18 set to "99.59" City times: tag CTY
  • NOTE #1 - There is some confusion about the meaning of the CITY times. The conflict comes from the fact that all 15/18 swimmers are invited to swim at City on Friday night. The 15/18 are then tiered into T1 and T2 divisions based upon their qualifying times. All other age groups must meet their City qualifying times, and swim on Saturday. Here is the "Time Standard" reflecting the NPDSC City qualifying times.  The times are only defined for the Individual events, and have not changed since 2000, except for the newly added 15/18 50yd freestyle.
    NOTE #2 - In the original NPD2000.STD standard, all the 15/18 Individual times were artificially set high to "99.59" so all 15/18 swimmers will be shown as "Going to City"... with the tag CTY. You might also have this Time Standard file as NPDSCCTY.STD, with the tag CTY, but it too might not have the 15/18 true times...

    NOTE #3:
    In the new NPD2007.ST2 standard, ALL qualifying times are true, including the 15/18 Individual times. Therefore this file may be used for creating true local team performance reports... with the tag CTY*.

    NOTE #4:
    NPDSC Conversion Factors for meters/yards are based upon the NPDSC 25yd pool Time Standards.
    for 20 yard pools = divide by 1.300
    for 25 meter pool = multiple by 1.11

    NOTE #5:
    All current standards are updated in the new templates for Meet Manager.

    Internet Connection Speed Test
    Now Playing: phil
    Topic: Hy-Tek Updates

    Here is a download & upload speed test.  This info is handy when trying to determine how long it will take to download a Hy-Tek 10MB update.  A typical DSL or Cable broadband connection tested at 2500kbps (2.5mbps) will download 10megs in about 30-45 secs.
    Just click on the testing icon, and then select a server.

    Test your Internet connection speed at - or - Speakeasy Speed Test

    Hy-Tek Software Updates & Upgrades
    Now Playing: Phil
    Topic: Hy-Tek Updates
    Here is the information & links for software updates and upgrades for both Team Manager 4.0 and Meet Manager 2.0 Updates...
    Both TM 4.0 and MM 2.0 now support their own Check for Updates menu commands. Just click on the menu command and follow the directions.
    Of course, the team computer must be connected to the Internet for this command and download to work.

    Here are 2 online access tests. If your computer fails to display either website test, you will not be able to use the Check for Updates feature, and must manually download the updates.

    The ZIP update files may be manually downloaded by any computer, and then manually copied & installed on the team computer. These "updates" are from 3meg to 10meg in size.
    These ZIP files may be manually downloaded directly from the Hy-Tek download webpage. After they are manually downloaded and saved to your local hard disk, do not UnZip them - leave them alone... Team Manager and Meet Manager will handle them directly as ZIP files.
    For Manual Updates: / File / Install Update / (follow directions)
