    Multiple identical entries in alltimelog.txt

    Steve,

    The all-time record light came on this afternoon and on checking alltimelog.txt I have multiple identical entries for the same record...

    Is this normal? I am on a slightly older beta version. Not sure if that makes any difference.

    It's because of rounding; the figure would have been slightly higher but not within the displayed precision. I ought to change all of the all-time record calculating so that it only does it within the displayed precision, but it's a lot of effort to change all of the code.

    Thanks Steve. For the relatively rare occasions that file is written to it's not a problem. It's about to get bigger because my all-time max has gone again this afternoon - somewhat surprisingly.
    Cheers,
