    HRD reads the computer time as far as I know. Sounds like a problem with the computer not HRD. Eh?? I edit QSO times in HRD all the time.

    Bug submitted.

    I forgot to ask, can I get a job reporting bugs? I am currently unemployed and available :cool:

    Do a quick test please. Edit a contact now. Just change an RST and see if the saved time doesn't change by an hour..... I edit stuff occasionally also. But if I edit a QSO from 3 weeks ago (right now), the time gets backed up by an hour. The program SHOULD uses the system clock (which by the way is correct on the box), but I think it's hosing around with daylight savings time calculations, which is causing the problem.

    Times entered and editing things were no problem yesterday. I think after 2 AM tonite (EST), when the time REALLY changes, things will start working again.

    2 AM EST the Winblows clock jumped to 3 AM and HRD fixed itself. Have to wait until next year to fix this bug I guess....

    another good feature would be if it could automatically compute if i had a country confirmed, or not, or an alarm to let me know an unconfirmed country is on the cluster without me having to make alarms for that. Many other free programs already have that feature.

    Keep getting timeouts while attempting HRD download. Downloaded large files from another site to ensure no trouble on my end.

    Just thought that I would point out that you forgot something in this (and the previous) upgrade.

    You forgot to include one of those really ugly disgusting splash screens for the Rotator startup. Unfortunately, the current one looks reasonable, therefore failing to match the crappy ones on other parts of the package.

    Don't worry, we're working on more crappy ones to replace the good ones! LOL

    So, when will 5.12, free update, be released as promised to fix the bugs generated anew in 5.1 and 5.11a?

    Bummer that you are having problems.

    Sounds like Support is working the same as the Software.

    I could not believe they missed the Dayton release of V6 like they verbally promised.

    Hmmm..... Ya' know, I've heard the same on some of the Packet BB about their new TNC suite.... Hard to tell whether that was BS or not, but I'd give them a day or two to respond to your post here. With all the accolades and moral support they've received here from the QRZ staff, they just about have too....

    BTW, it is no surprise V.6 wasn't released on time. We should have no problem with that, doo-doo occurs, and NOBODY wants them to release their program until it is ready....what surprises me is that with all of the threads announcing that HRD v. 6 would the greatest thing since peanut butter, no threads were started that said, "Release of V.6 will be delayed".

    Hopefully the whole deal wasn't an effort to sucker a whole bunch of people out of their money........ I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I gave them weeks to reply. I really think they are going to take all the $59.95 subscribers
    they can get and haul butt. They are using us as beta testers for free so the software should
    remain free. Now I see that V.6 is months away. What a ripoff. :mad:

    Hi Chuck.

    I'll bet if you give a call, someone will answer or return your call.

    813-434-4667 -

    It's up to you get the answers you need to make the program work for you as it was intended or relegate yourself to never having had the last word (where it counts).
