18.Two problems may occur when you upload your results:
- The link to upload your time, or edit your race is: http://188.8.131.52:8000/entries
- If you are NOT the main "enter-er", i.e. your wife/mom/other entered for you, then use the drop down and pick Customer Name, type some of their name, click SEARCH, then click on the Order # that appears below that matches your name and you should be good from there.
- Your computer security or email host server may have a fit when it sees “boobies”. If it rejects the upload, then email your result by return mail (to: firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will take it from there.
