Perhaps Rob punched the start 12s after you?

No, I mean on the computer screen his time was below mine, it showed 1 second more. I'm confident that has to be the net time, right?

I think the software doesn't automatically sort by time, so tie scores are listed in the order of download. That could explain the ordering (I assume Tyler fixed that for posting), but it wouldn't account for seeing the actual numbers you describe. Maybe the two start boxes were out of sync so there was a correction for that?

Yes I have to sort them by time post event. I didn't notice at any time the times being 1 second apart, but I rarely even look at the results during the event very closely, most just checking everyone in and getting a proper result.

There could be the small chance that I didn't sort carefully but the way it is done I can't see how I would have introduced changed times. I will take a look at the event files later.

Oh - It could well be that our clock time was in fact 1 second apart, but the actual time was as reported in the final. I was relying on the computer auto-sorting at the time of display, so that the later change was an actual change. That makes sense.

Just checked the times show the same as final sorted on the website.

The score-O results from the software Ór are never sorted by time after the points and just shown as ties within the software and on the display monitor. The developer has said that is how they do it in his country Ireland and would be unlikely to add so I have to sort it by hand after.

It displays by some means of order downloaded and who is entered first in the entries list for the order it lists ties.

I guess you mean you punched the finish box 1 second apart? The timer starts when each person punched the start boxes.

Right, I'm meaning that some number related to what I thought I saw seemed to be one second apart - and I was "on top", so I was thinking that I must have been one second faster... Perhaps I was one second different in start or finish time. No matter, now I understand. (thanks)
