Proud of Brett!

I am so proud of Brett. He is working very hard on remaking the Grand Prix race software. He doesn’t really like the one that the church bought for the Grand Prix races for Awana so he is remaking it. So far he has the 8 way race done and now he needs to make the 16, 24, 32 and 48 way race charts. He is using Visaul Basic for it. He is also making a database that will be able to flow with the race part as well. I have no clue what he is doing. I enjoy just sitting near him on the bed watching him do this because he so dramatic with his thinking, you can just see the wheels turning and the light bulb turning on when he finally figured it out. He has to have this done by Wednesday, March 5th. I know he can do this because he is smart.

My brother (he is an electrical engineer) is suppose to get the feed from the track of the races to shoot up to the computer but he has been swamped at work so next year that will have to get implemented. My brother has gotten to were we have LED lights telling us the order of the winners of each race come in, he did that last year and remade it this year to be better (he did that before work got swamped). Now we don’t have to rely on human eyes to see who was first, second, third and fourth place, that was always hard to figure out when you have some cars arriving at the finish line at the same time.

This year will be much better because of what Brett comes up with and what my brother has done so far, the races it self will go a lot smoother.
