I suppose that would be OK. I just know at 5am in the morning, when I need to look over the logbook for something, having to convert from UTC to the time on all my shipboard clocks is bound to cause errors and confusion for me and crew.

My feeling is things should be as simple as possible, and local time, in my opinion, if much simpler to deal with for things like a ship's log that will be entered and read in tired states at times.

That being said, if its easier to store values as UTC and display as local time, that is fine also. However, when I move from one timezone to another, I would want the log from timezone X to reflect the local times at that timezone, not be converted to timezone Y that I am now in and have changed my computer's clock to. However now you have to deal with what happens when the time zone changes during a voyage. People work in local times from my experience, and having to convert to and from UTC is a confusing step for people working in a hurry. Trying to explain the time to a foreign speaking authority will also cause difficulties.

Just my .02.

Hello Gilletarom,

You are right. I've opened a new thread:

Re: Logbook Plug-in

Following a recent discussion on i18n thread, I figured I never uploaded dll for the latest version of this plugin.

You can download v0.3 here:
http://je.onfray.fr/dl/logbook_pi.dll

I also pushed a small change to make it build on Windows.

Enjoy!

Re: Logbook Plug-in

Hello sethdart,

I try your LogBook with the french file language. No problem with the file language.

BUT :

The first I run the logbook, I run it without write the name of destination file in the preferences. And the logbook as run without said nothing ...

The second test, I enter a name of file, then it run correctly

More tests after, I run the logbook, after I place a name of file destination, I named myself the file with xml extension. Bad idea because when I try to change for cvs by checked the checkbox ... then nothing occur. And after many tests then OCPN crash.

Other : When I run your LogBook, if I try to stop it by click on the icon on the icons barr, the icon stay as if the Logbook do not stop.

B.R.

Gilletarom.

If you don't provide a filename, nothing is done. Logging only starts when a filename is set. What did you expect? No, it'll not annoy you with a popup every minute until you set a filename. No way.

I cannot reproduce that here. The filename is just a name, you can name it .doc, no matter. It'll save data in selected format in selected filename. If you change format from csv to xml or vice-versa without changing filename you'll end with a file with mixed data. That's what you asked the plugin to do. Doh!

Please read post #5. You can only start stop this plugin enabling/disabling it. The button was added in this version to enable user comment: when you click the button, a dialog opens and you can add any comment to the next record (or check the box to save a record immediately)

Re: Logbook Plug-in

Hi SethDart,

I would like to install your logbook plugin, but I don't succeed. I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits and O 3.1.13.9.
Here is what I have done :
I have added "add_subdirectory (logbook_pi)" to /home/jp/OpenCPN/plugins/CMakeLists.txt.
As I don't know where to place it I have try in different places, then I open a terminal and :
Code:
cd OpenCPN
git pull
cd build
cmake ../
And I always get this error :
Code:
jp@jp-N73SV:~/OpenCPN/build$ cmake ../

What is the problem ? I need some help please.

Code:
cd plugins
git clone http://github.com/SethDart/logbook_pi.git
cd ../build
cmake ../
make

Re: Logbook Plug-in

Hi SethDart,

I have try it, I was static, but it should work the same while sailing. Exactly what I was looking for since a lot of time.

Simple, you can forget it, but it is running. And I like the possibility to add some comments which is very useful.

Thanks for this plugin. it took me a long time to find it while under my eyes since the beginning ...
