Wait... we don't need to keep the punch cards anymore then??
Norm, the Babbage Engine broke down a while ago...
Unless his name is Norman then NO
Not the way you shuffle them like a deck of playing cards before feeding them back into the card reader
I have to admit, that's pretty much the hardware dreamhost had us on. ;-)
Oh crap, it ate the tape now our posts are all scrambled.
Like the whopper (WOPR) from War Games [showing his age]....... want to make a post?
I felt the same until last night when I downloaded Tapatalk. Now all sites that support it I will be only using tapatalk on my phone to access them. To bad Drupal is not supported by tapatalk.
The advantage of push notifications, and like GreshamH said, having all of your sites in one bundle are very nice. Also, because the whole app is formatted for phones, load times are better. This all assumes that you are slightly deranged (myself included) and need to be able to access everything, all the time, everywhere.
You know, we are totally willing to accept help from people that might be interested in making this happen. All you have to do is raise your hand. Erin does a bang up job with the forum but to say she has a lot to keep up with is an understatement.
From what I have heard, it is unrealistic to expect anyone from doing it. Basically a full time job working out bugs, which you have to check for each update to each phones software, and/or tapatalk. What is done here at this site is amazing, simply for the fact that there is no paid staff working to keep it as clear and concise as possible. I would rather have the site remain the same, then a half-hearted attempt to implement a new technology by someone that can not devote full time effort, at significant cost.
The only way I ever see us with it is if Tapatalk gets Drupal support. Tapatalk is easy to implement... making Apps is not easy. I got quotes for simple ones ranging from $1K to $20K ea (per platform).
Sorry as the Treasurer I can say that this is not in the budget for the next year..
Yup no doubt. I would have major objections to the club blowing that kind of money.
Tapatalk is free to install... just a few lines of code.
Pretty funny, Matthew! I get a kick out of you calling Norm on his estimated iphone cost. hehehe. My iphone 4 cost $200 too! lol. I just knew that someday Matthew would start keeping us all honest.............
I want to see a Skype ap that will support the video conferencing that the iphone is capable of. I'm not real fond of Facetime since it only supports other iphone 4's. The good news is that I can Facetime with at least Jess and David! :bigsmile:
I'll give you a discount, $19,999 ;-)
You code Apps? Which platform?
While you paid 200 it actually tryly costs a lot more. Go to Apples store and look at the disclaimer on the price...
Gosh, I doubt anyone has paid the retail price for their iphone. They just want you to feel better about spending the 200 bucks.
