I am pondering what to do next with the TaskMaster
In recent years various people have suggested things like:-
1) A "freshening" (of the appearance, presumably) of the whole program
2) A re-write in MS Access
3) A re-write for mobile platforms (Android and such)
4) Re-configuration into a web-based application
All those points (and others) may have merit, but to carry it forward in any shape or form would take an investment in time (that mainly), new hardware and (possibly) software that I may not be able to summon from my own (limited) resources.
So I am looking for ideas, suggestions and/or proposals ... but beyond that, possible collaboration and indeed someone (or a group) willing to take on the whole thing, and develop it further.
If someone wants to make an offer for the source code, then feel free to do so (eg,
via PM). The code has been written in MS Visual FoxPro 9.0 so you would need to have that (database programming language) available. Up until now I have been happy to publish the program on a free-of-charge basis, but be clear that the source code is the result of thousands of hours of work, and cannot be simply given away.
If I fail to generate any interest along those lines, and in the absence of some form of sponsorship to carry on with maintenance and development myself, then the program shall probably just be left "as is" and simply allowed to wither on the vine
