VesselWatch Map Marker Icon Experiment

June 3rd, 2015

Since I’m working on catching up the Android version of VesselWatch, I wanted to try an experiment with rendering a 3D model of a WSF ferry and using it as a marker icon. At specific zoom levels, it looks awesome. But overall the effect wasnt what I had in mind. I wont be including this in the next update. However I will have better vessel marker pins that the previous versions. Stay tuned Android users. Hopefully it will be in the store before the end of June 2015. Then iOS will be updated shortly after that. If you have any suggestions, please email me.

In & Out Board is now Open Source

May 6th, 2015

In an attempt to keep this project alive, I’m making all of the source code available to the open source community. Feel free to fork it on Github or modify it and send me pull requests. Hopefully others will find it useful. There are a several groups that use the board regularly (an engineering firm and a handful of school districts among others).

First Android App using Xamarin

October 22nd, 2014

I updated the Tucson Streetcar Android App using Xamarin instead of the Java Android Eclipse tools. It took some time to get used to using Mono and the new IDE, but it ended up being very pleasant to work with. Worth the $25/month indie developer license I think. Check it out, Android Tucson Streetcar version 2.2: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.porterdigital.TucsonStreetcar

Moving to a new server

September 22nd, 2013

This website has just moved to a new cloud host at XMission. I am planning to retire my old IBM web servers and replace it with XMission’s new cloud servers. I’ve been testing for a month already and it seems solid. I will now move this website over and test before moving the client websites. Hopefully it works out (I dont want to manage my own hardware anymore).

Button Board Crash!

August 23rd, 2013

The server that runs the Button Board died early this morning. I am working frantically to get it back online. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Stay tuned…

Update! – the new server is online. The majority of clients have been migrated over to the new server. If you want your old board migrated or would like to setup a new board, email Dallan at support@button-board.com
