It’s amazing. My love for flying and computers is starting to have it’s children.
I’m kinda inventive and lazy guy. When I can automate something, I don’t bother to do it. This is very annoying when I’m flying. Especially annoying when I have to recall some details. Some of these details are … Takeoff and Landing time records.
As an ex. in mastering C++ with QT on Maemo ( and I believe all other QT platforms like Symbian ) I have started developing a small help tool for myself.
At the moment it is dirt simple ( took me 3h to write and test ) , with a touch of a button it records take off time and with another touch of a button, landing time.
It’s usable now, if you wanna try ( just drop a comment ).
I will be adding also recording of this data to a text file, with basic calculations :
- conversion to decimal
- time for pilot logbook
- tech log
So it’s just a beginning for me. And what a fruitful one. I never expected that I still remember that much C++ to scribble something that quickly with unknown API.
