Ride Choice Development Progress Updates
(listed here in order to simplify the 2006 Archive page)

03/03/06

PUBLIC ENTRY FORMS FULLY FUNCTIONAL: Five (5) ride for anybody to edit. No password required. Also all ARC ride leaders have all been given five of their own rides to mix, match and edit. While we are waiting for computers and Internet access to become more common, Palletman has been granted control of all OCBC ride listings, except Lynn's Hump, Walk, and Majorca.

03/03/06

1st REAL EVENT POSTED ON RIDE CHOICE: Select the Sunday radio button to see Lynn's walk listing. And what's up with CaliperGirl?

03/02/06

Basic functions of RIDE CHOICE SOFTWARE now in place!
However, edit functions are disabled for the public sample.

Final testing has begun, so lists, info pages, and the Select Day page should stabilize as SlingShot stops overwriting records by design and accident.

03/01/06

THE RIDE CHOICE SOFTWARE: The full input forms are so close to being finished, I can't even talk about it.

02/28/06

E-MAIL TIME OUT FROM PROGRAMMING

02/27/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Selection tables format simplified with extended information broken out onto separate pages to drill-down using  info link, now includes ride length, contact info. Day selection now defaults to "Today"...

| FULL LIST | SELECT DAY |

02/26/06

PROOF OF LIFE:  No doubt, it's plenty cold in NY, but that only gives people plenty of time to write e-mail and dream of warmer times, and other things...

02/26/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: New fields for Miles, Ride Leader, Email, and Phone Number added... Also RIDES button on the home page now links directly to the CHOOSE RIDE DAY page which defaults to current day for quick checking which rides are going out today...

02/25/06

QUICK TASTE OF THINGS TO COME!

02/24/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Now we're gettin' somewhere. Please click some of these drop-downs, put in some text, check the results, come back and hit the "Restore Defaults" button...

02/23/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Cuter format, automated Timestamp added as "Last Update" of ride info, several additions to drop-down lists such as: "Spin Class" for ride level, "RT" expanded to "Road Trip," casing changed for weekdays to enhance readability, big changes under the hood, but that's a whole 'nother story...

02/23/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: All Ride Leaders' personal edit forms now upgraded to ver. 0.004. Drop-downs are fully data bound and changes follow input immediately. You couldn't make a mistake if you tried...

02/23/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: New HELP file link (upper right), and RESTORE DEFAULTS button added to RIDES TEST EDIT FORM...

02/22/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Ride Leaders have all been updated to Ride Choice Software ver 0.003 which includes Ride Status (Go, No, Cancelled, etc), plus the process has been fine tuned at SlingShot's end, so he can start looking at how things might work better, based on how people start using the current features by posting real ride info...

02/21/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Last night, incredible enhancements to the underlying code! Amazingly it all worked. Nothing changed online yet, but SlingShot has gone a long way toward putting a massive Hemi under the hood of our little mini-van Ride Choice Software...

02/20/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: New "Status" field included on the Entry Form TEST version. The apostrophe problem is resolved, no longer a problem...

02/19/06

YEAH: The apostrophe issue with the Ride Choice Edit Forms has been resolved. Use 'em or lose 'em!

02/18/06

RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Twin Lynn's Majorca Road Trip now included in her rides list. Well, at least the setup for her to put in the information has been completed...

02/17/06

THE RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: Twin Lynn has now taken full control of her rides page. That makes two ride leaders in charge of their password protected info which they may update anytime. Plus the directory has been further refined with better explanation...

02/16/06

THE RIDE CHOICE UPDATE: All the Edit Forms have been updated for the Ride Leaders. They now have the most recent functions, and are password protected. Palletman has already made the first test edits, and Zirra helped confirm login protections are functioning. Twin Lynn tried an edit but got caught by the NO APOSTROPHES bug. Thank you once again, Microsoft. The fuckers.

In any case, the new rides directory page is coming along nicely.

SlingShot knows about the bug by way of the seven hours he wasted online trying to find a fix. He pretty much assumed that everybody would get caught by it once, so was glad to confirm his precognitive powers are intact. He knows an easy workaround, and will tell people how to use it after their first success using:

 NO APOSTROPHES!
 

02/14/06

RIDES ENTRY TEST: ANYBODY CAN TRY IT!

02/14/06

RIDES DIRECTORY UPDATED: Now under control of individual ride leaders, password protected input!

02/13/06

NEW RIDES DIRECTORY: Make the ride choice!

02/12/06


Lynn Meyer 2006

02/12/06: Twin Lynn's Sunday ride canceled due to wet conditions. ("Bunch o' NY pussies! Uh, Lynn...turn around quick for a picture of the snowplow coming back." - SlingShot)
