It's a brilliant application. I've been using the "Pro" version for about a year now. It rivals the PDGA iOS app for sure, though it might get some tough competition if the PDGA ever gets off their a$$es and published their app for Android...

Wow. Timely post.

Degrassi star ‘Wheels’ reported dead, five years later

Neil Hope played the trouble character "Wheels" on Degrassi Junior High.
Feb 16, 2012

Degrassi producers have confirmed the death of Neil Hope, who played the character Derek “Wheels” Wheeler on the long-running show, having only learned of his passing in 2007 days ago.

As fans mourned Thursday, Stephanie Cohen, vice-president of marketing and communications for Epitome Pictures Inc., which produces the teen drama, said executive producers Linda Schuyler, who was involved in the original series, and Stephen Stohn were “incredibly saddened” by the news.

“Neil made an important contribution to our lives, to the lives of our television team, who are like a family to us, and indeed to the live of many Canadians and others around the world who were influenced by Neil and the roles he played starting from the early days of The Kids of Degrassi Street,” the pair, who were on vacation Thursday, said in a statement.

“His life was not an easy one, but the time he spent with us was a shining example of determination, hard work and hopeful optimism and he is sorely missed.”

Schulyer and Hope worked together over the past 32 years the show has been running, from The Kids of Degrassi Street to Degrassi: The Next Generation, where Hope appeared in three reunion episodes with old cast members Pat Mastroianni and Stefan Brogren, who play Joey Jeremiah and Archibald “Archie” “Snake” Simpson.

But Cohen said Epitome had lost touch with Hope in the past several years since his last appearance in 2003.

She said she wasn’t sure if old cast members would have been informed of his passing.

On social media sites fans and celebrities expressed shock at the sudden news of Hope’s death.

Reports suggest Hope died at age 35 on Nov. 25, 2007, of natural causes in Hamilton. His death was only made public today.

Easy Scorecard still what people with droids are using?

I got one over the holidays. Although it now costs 3.98 for the pro version but it may be worth it for cloud sync with dropbox and some of the other features.

I've tried a bunch, including easy score card.

I now refuse to use one.

During a competitive round, I won't let one serve as an official scorecard, and I wish tournament directors would explicitly forbid their use in an official capacity during tournament rounds.

If you're just playing a casual round, well, knock yourself out.

IMHO, pencil and paper are more reliable and less time consuming while on the course. Writing three or four numbers on paper is much less complicated than turning the phone on and following the data entry UI. You also don't worry about application crashes, data loss, or battery life.

If you're interested in stats collection, I've found it to be the least disruptive to fumble with the smartphone following the round. I would format my scorecard and enter the scores all at once. That way I wouldn't keep people waiting.

In the end, none of the available products produces a report that I can't produce with an ordinary spreadsheet, and the data entry is easier on a PC anyways. Droid scorecards with little to no mid-round benefits are glossy things that I will no longer be seduced by.

Thanks for the review bourgie.

I noticed your new signature there.

What are your plans for your raspberry pi?

I've read some interesting applications people have used them for online. This garage door opener mod is pretty neat.

Oh no. Don't get him started.
