I have been working on a new version of the Rental Site. There are a lot of changes, so many that I ended up starting from scratch. There is a brand new POR2Site updating utility and a new API on the site to receive updates via HTTP POSTs so more apps can be made to easily interface with the site. The API right now is used to receive inventory details (Images, Rates, Descriptions, Titles, Prices). The Admin panel is a lot better with many new options. You can now add albums, upload images, link to YouTube videos, manage menu items, manage categories, manage users, view site errors and more.
I’m still working on a few things and hope to launch a site for all Rental Site info and downloads.
Beta site running Rental Site and POR2Site app: http://doublerrental.com
This method will send data to a website page using the “POST” method.
ASCIIEncoding encoding = new ASCIIEncoding();
private static string PostData(byte data, string address)
Uri uri = new Uri(address);
WebRequest request = WebRequest.Create(uri);
request.Method = “POST”;
request.ContentType = “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”;
request.ContentLength = data.Length;
Stream dataStream = request.GetRequestStream();
dataStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
dataStream = response.GetResponseStream();
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(dataStream);
string responseFromServer = reader.ReadToEnd();
// Display the content.
// Clean up the streams.

The nursery is getting there
Since the Robot Engine program is getting bigger and bigger I have decided to create a sub domain to host its own site. robotengine.dbhagen.com is the new home for the Robot Engine. Check it out, try it, leave comments whatever you want. I look forward to seeing you there.
Joe Hudson’s Collision off Memorial Parkway in Huntsville is a place I would never like to see again. Our car got hit by our neighbor who refused to give us there insurance information so we had to file it with our insurance company. They arranged an appointment with Joe Hudson’s Collision to fix the car. When we got the car back there was a new chip in the rear bumper and a paint bubble in the side that they repainted. They offered us a rental car while they where fixing it again and said it would be ready. There was no rental car when I dropped of the car and was 20 minutes late for work. They’re trying to fix it now, but it wont be as good as new. The whole experience with Joe Hudson’s Collision was bad. They seemed lazy, didn’t care much for you satisfaction and offered poor quality work. I would recommend a different body shop if you are thinking of going there.

Sorry for the delay in posting and updating the robot engine section but I’ve been busy busy at work getting rid of viruses and trying to stay between Webroot and Intuit Quickbooks 2010 while they fight all day long. Hopefully I will get some time soon to update the site and re-post all the code and programs for download. Please stay tuned.

Probably no one noticed a few days ago when the site was down for a bit (because no one looks at this site), but I got new hard drives for one of my servers. I got two nice Western Digital Black edition 1BT drive running raid 1. Now there no chance on me loosing data and running out of space. Well for awile at least
So I have decided to change my site engine to a lighter and faster one. The old one had a lot of features but also a lot of extra bagage and on my personal server at home it was a bit slow. So please bare with me as I change the site around.

So I took a break from the Robot Engine project the other night and loaded Android on my AT&T Tilt. I was pleasantly surprised at the how easy it was and how fast and smooth it ran after. I ran into a few problems here and there and finally got it running. The bluetooth and the camera still don’t work, due to drivers, but I’ll keep my eyes open for a fix. Once I got everything going, I started looking at all the apps the app store had to offer (most free). There are apps for about everything and they all feel just like the OS (fast and smooth) which is a big plus. I was very surprised at the variety of apps. One of the most interesting apps I found was a metal detector which uses the internal compass to detect metal. Unfortunately the Tilt doesn’t have a compass so I wasn’t able to use with one. Android for the Tilt isn’t a ROM(yet) so you still have to boot into Windows then reboot into Android. I put the booter in the Startup folder so it automatically boots to Android right after it boots to Windows. No big deal i hardly ever turn off my phone. Now I cant wait to get a new phone that runs Android natively and play with all the features Android was to offer.
Over all I love it and is now my favorite mobile OS.
If you want to try it out on you Kaiser(Tilt) or Vogue phone, this is were I got it from.
