Orphaned projects

A small list of my first open source projects, now given up for various reasons.

ExtCalendar

ExtCalendar was founded somewhere in 2001 and became a quite big succes at a certain moment. At one point, even NASA used it on one of their subsites. You can still grab the source of version 1 and 2 from CVS at the Sourceforge pages. Somewhere in 2004, Mohamed Moujami took over the project and was responsible for version 2. I'm not sure whether his planning to release a new version, but nothing is keeping anyone to help him of course :)

Dave/Dina

Dave/Dina is a redhat-based media center, founded by Thomas Van Der Stichele and is still available via CVS. I helped him out testing stuff, writing back- and front-ends and (last but not least) configuring mame stuff so we could play Puzzle Bobble with all of our housemates. Those were the days ...

MySQL-Formmaker

MySQL-Formmaker is a tool for creating easy administration forms and output of data. You define your forms, types of input, order, and so on, and the system makes a database for you, along with the admin and output files. You can change the layout of the output files. MySQL field-types supported are INT, VARCHAR, TEXT, DATE, and DATETIME. Input fields supported are NONE, TEXT, TEXTAREA, RADIO, CHECKBOX, SELECT, and FILE-UPLOAD. It helped me and some friends creating back- and front-ends for websites without doing much coding. Source is still available at the bottom or on mysqlfm.sf.net.

GSMCAL2HTML

This script gets the calendar dates from your gsm and creates two files:

* a cute html file with some nice javascripting with the events in a nice popup layer. The javascript will display the current month of the current year.
* write a iCal (.ics) file which can be read by your email client (in my case evolution). This part is a bit experimental for now. Let me know if it should be updated.
Tip: if you want to delete all entries in the evolution calendar, use killev.
It works for reminders and birthdays (for now).

This is tested with gammu (http://www.gammu.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gammu:Main_Page) on Fedora Core 4 (GNU/Linux) with my Nokia 3100. No guaranties this will work on another model, I only tested it with my mobile phone. Download and more info at the bottom.
