Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Thanks for looking, Evelyn. If I run into it again, I'll try re-checking the events page later.

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Well, I've missed this 15-pointer twice now, and although my skill score takes the expected hit, when I go to the events log to check it out, it says something like, "Congratulations, you've missed no power movies this current session!" Anyone else care to try? http://aerogel.ssl.berkeley....

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Here's another one, Dan, that seems to be mismarked. http://aerogel.ssl.berkeley.edu/powermi ... 6&theY=184 shows the coordinates 156/184, but the track is actually at about 110/300. It's an easy 5-pointer, so that really hurts the skill score and ego.

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

OK, here's an 18-rated PM that seems to me harder than most 75-80 pointers I've seen. Good luck spotting this one. http://aerogel.ssl.berkeley.edu/powermi ... 20&theY=-5

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Wow, Digi, I think that's the first one of those I've seen this phase. It is rare switching gel segments in the same movie, and only once before have I seen one that was also a PM. The X & Y coordinate markers for this one do seem correct. There is a faint/subtle vertical "track" at th...

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Here's another problem PM - 4241772V1. It's supposedly a 2-pointer, and the track does seem obvious leaving the screen at the upper edge, but I got it "wrong." There are no Y coordinate markers, and the X coordinate markers seem shifted to the right of the actual feature. The true coordina...

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Yes, Lily, I recently had a 9-pointer for which I thought the same. Dan (or Robert), I just "missed" a 3-pointer that I think might be another inverted track. It lacks Y-coordinate markers, but to me it looks like the bottom edge is the correct place to click, yet I got it wrong. It's 9401...

Re: Phase VII

John, while I was checking your site fairly regularly in Phase VI, I don't think it's worth your effort for just a couple dusters. Of course, I don't know how much work it involves. I suspect your time dusting is more valuable, unless the newer dusters would find it of interest.

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Thanks, Dan.
Martin, thanks for looking. The X coordinates now show; however, I really have to use my imagination to see a track there. If it is there, I think it merits a higher rating than 21.

Re: Missed Movie has no Track?

Hello, Quaditz. There is a faint horizontal track at those coordinates. If you go to 200 zoom or greater you should be able to make it out. (I do most of my dusting at 200 or 212 zoom.) Regards,

Re: Post your stats

Well, John, finally made it to the 1.0000 current skill score for Phase VII, but it's been a challenge. My cumulative score is still well below where it was at the end of Phase VI. Doubt I'll be threatening my longest correct PM streak from last phase (2553). Not going to bother posting my stats unl...

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

Usually that's the case, Evelyn. This track, as stated, is missing the X coordinate marker, so it is not obvious where the actual track is located. Glad you've been finding this a useful resource.

Re: "There's a problem with this focus movie"

For at least the second time, I've missed PM 8130588V1, which as before shows no X coordinate. It's only rated a 21, but looking along the purported Y coordinate, I just can't spot it. Anyone else see a track here? I'm thinking I'll try the white spot next time.

Re: Phase VII

John, for those who might want to compare skill scores, I figured we could use the old "Post Your Stats" discussion thread like in the early days. I notice you were the last person to post there as recently as March 2011. I was thinking of posting there later today. Evelyn, until the team ...

Re: Phase VII

Welcome back, Evelyn. It was fun seeing your photo again. I agree with you that the current dusting environment makes one feel more isolated from the community. It would be nice to be able to access a complete listing of dusters - or at least the top 100 power scores, preferably without having to lo...
