The shortcut to calibration movies is:
IDs 8000 to ~10300 are calibration movies with no track
~10300 to ~12000 are calibration movies with a track
there are fewer grey values in the calibration movies so they appear coarser.
I did not know there was shorcut. Although it may be helpful for some to know which numbers are track/no track, I find that the more I look at it, the better I get at finding tracks that are not calibrated. By the way, I think you misunderstood Orion when talking about 'points'- the reference was for the tracks that look like points not actual scoring points.
jaco: I use Firefox and I have tried it. You sign in, then open a brand new window (you will still be signed in) and then you click on the VM. The two windows have different movies. Tile the two windows and you will be able to see both on your monitor. I found it to be laborious but then again, waiting for movies to load is a waste of research time (don't you holy people chastise me for saying that, I've done research, a slow connection -back in the day- meant half my research day was wasted).
icebike is right though, the program catches the next movie for you so you can immediatly start as soon as you hit track/no track/bad focus. At the beginning, the connection was really slow. I was waiting for the next track to load because I already established a track or no track. I did not think to open two windows so I just worked on other stuff while it loaded. Nevertheless, it was frustrating to have to wait.
In the end, claiming top spot is cool but nothing will be more exhilarating than finding a REAL track. Lay off the guys who go through the slides quickly, it is very possible to go that fast! Just do what you want to do and ENJOY it- remember, if you are not having fun- STOP! I sit at Rank 244 and LOVING IT!
Strange people don't bother me, I bother strange people....
