QT Testing

I would urge a very complete testing of any such toolkit to insure that it is compatible with the various screen readers on the various platforms. My experience with Jave shows that this is a very serious problem. Greg I will add my voice in support of QT. We use it in our commercial apps as well. ...

VCS

The true power of a version control system is the ability to branch and revert back to old data. Mostly, I would use it to allow different lines to be explored while keeping the ability to roll back changes if something strange happened. I would track changes at the individual or family level, not t...

Fillable form

Are you looking to make a fillable PDF form? I think you need the full copy of Adobe Acrobat for that.

I don't have a copy myself, but I might be able to get someone to make one for you.

Digital Amateur

incompatible with the main purposes of Amateur Radio (e.g. central authority to issue radio ids) -- John K7VE Interesting dilemma. On the one hand, all amateurs have an FCC ID that is required when they are on the air. On the other hand, D-Star users are finding that if they have multiple radios, o...

Suggetions 2

I forgot one suggestion. Do you have some dummy MLS data that we could use for testing? It would be nice to be able to test the apps without worrying about the data getting out. Here, we craft data by corrupting existing datasets. Often we replace names with fictional characters, and mix records. We...

Bellweather

I had a post that I debated somewhat on the lines of what Mr. M posted. I see this project as an indication of how this process works. I understand that the church has a lot of process to get these things live. My fear is that we will lose good people with great ideas if these projects disapear. I h...

Open Source Java

Java has been open source for quite a while. However, SUN does not allow you to re-distribute JAVA. That is why most Linux distros do not bundle the JRE, since they can have the code, but they can't distribute it to a third party. It is a bit odd to me that RedHat does not ship Java, as they do incl...

2) Install better Java. You need better Java than provided by Fedora. Specifically, you need a javaws program. It doesn't appear to be part of the current Fedora Java environment. So, you need to install Sun's Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Miles RedHat, and many other Linux distros include the GC...

PHPGedView

I have used PHPGedView. It is a nice program, and would probably fill your needs. I don't know how much hacking you want to do, but it would even be possible to put it on a CD or DVD with Apache from portableapps.com.

Cisco Marketing

No, the licensing only has to do with Cisco's revenue model and marketing. I guess maybe it is because some of their SOHO have fixed class C networks behind them, while a PIX will do whatever IP range you tell it to. You can easily get around the license by putting a NAT device behind the PIX. A SOH...
