DOS WSTIMS is being officially retired this week. Please join me in thanking Dave Clark for his many, many years of development and support of DOS Wstims.

Note from Dave Clark:

The latest release, 3.58 as of June 2011, included control tables only up through the 2012 ski year, which ends with this year’s Nationals at the end of this week.  After closely watching the acceptance and usage and accuracy of the new WSTIMS for Windows program over the past two full seasons, it is clear that the vast majority of local AWSA Tournament scorers have embraced and are using the new program, with success.

The only areas where it had seen little use was in the collegiate and Pro/International areas.  On the former, Yvonne Downs has done extensive testing, and is working closely with Dave Allen to rectify the few remaining issues for Collegiate, and the program is expected to be fully functional for Collegiate within the next two weeks.  On the latter, I used WSTIMS for Windows at the Malibu Open last weekend, and the few awkward areas there have also been identified, short-term workarounds for those have been developed, and long-term solutions planned.

So those remaining areas will be covered by WSTIMS for Windows for the 2013 ski year.  Hence there is really no need to maintain the DOS WSTIMS program any longer.

DOS WSTIMS was first used officially during the 1987 season, so this past year 2012 would make it a Silver Anniversary — a fitting time for retirement.  Congratulations to Dave Allen and Jeff Clark and to the large number of volunteers who have contributed to the development of the new Windows successor.
