How long was that ride? I just open my interval file and it was pretty much instantaneous. I'm digging this.

I had loaded about a month of data into it. Apparently it took so long because it had to load all of the data from all of the rides for the "all rides" line. Once it was all loaded it was much faster.

I've been using PowerAgent and it is lacking. I'll give this one a shot.

Trying to import 2 years worth of power data all at once didn't work out so well! (not that I expected it to)

some more feedback:

it would be nice if we could edit the data in the program.

for example, one ride has a couple seconds of erroneous data where my power is reported at 50,000 watts.

in WKO+ i can just cut out that section, but in Golden Cheetah I've had to export the ride to a CSV, delete the ride from Golden Cheetah, edit the CSV, then import it back into Golden Cheetah.

You just need a Mac Pro with two 2.93 Ghz quad-core processors, 32 gigs of RAM, a 30" HD display and 4 terrabytes of storage. It can be yours for the low, low cost of $16,148.

Also, now that I've edited out the bad data, the "All Rides" portion of the CP chart isn't updating. It still shows the old data.

This is the kind of mentality that will prevent Linux from ever getting any serious adoption from anyone other than computer science professionals.

+1. I switched from FreeBSD to Linux after 8 years because I got tired of having to compile stuff...or wait 2-3 months for someone to build a pkg. Sometimes you wait that long just for a port, which you still have to compile yourself.

I especially like that you can click anywhere on the critical power plot, drag the mouse and get the data for any specific duration.

AFAIK, the CP chart for all rides shows the plot for the last individual ride you clicked on, not the aggregate of all rides...which it should.

My CP chart shows a green line for the "Active" ride and a red line for "All" rides. The "All" rides line isn't updating when I delete and re-import data. It's like the chart caches its data somewhere.

OS bashing is even more tiresome than Shimano vs Campy.


BTW there is a prebuilt Linux binary on the site now. Static linked except for glib (needs 2.4).
