Maybe you guys are just MISSING, and not clicking close enough.

There is a reportd bug with some version of MSIE reporting bad clicks even in the training (which, unlike the calibration, is repeatable).

Switching to almost any other browser fixes the mis-point problem.

OH, and on more thing. Its useless to post calibration numbers except to alert the admins, because you can not call up and view a a calibration movie on demand like you can a real movie. Keying in those same numbers will call up a real movie. (This per the admins in another thread).

Not in firefox. I've seen it only in Konqueror.

No, I am one hundred percent positive I am clicking on the track, so it has got to be a bug of some sort.
If you can guess what video game my username references, post your answer.:)

I had an obvious track on a calibration movie, but it marked it wrong. I realized when I pushed OK that I think I clicked a few microns to the left of the track (a millimeter or two on the screen). Would that have made a difference? Would it explain any of your bad answers? I'm going to make sure I click right in the middle of the track from now on. :)
