Interim Update version 2.80

I have been hard at work on version 3.0 and have decided to move a few features into the current version of Envelope Print.  The version 3.0 re-programming is turning into a major new product.  Originally I had thought of this new version as an extension of the Envelope Print program, however it is becoming more like a Rolodex that allows for printing envelopes.  Therefore, I am probably going to end up with two products instead of rolling everything into one product.

Update on Version 3.0 progress

I know I should post more often but I just have too many different things going on in life.  It seems like there is always something else to do, and quite frankly I would rather be programming than posting a blog update.  However, I believe it is important to try and do updates on progress from time to time and will try to do so once a month.

Lots of progress has been made.  I am now ready to unveil the "overall" main screen for Envelope Printer 3.0

Here it is: Read More

Version 3.0

In my last two post I eluded to the fact that I am working on a complete re-write of Envelope Printer.  In December 2013 I completed and passed my Global Information Assurance Certification - Computer Forensic Examiner testing.

Another Update

OK so this past weekend I was able to sit down and do some work on the next version.

I spent about 14 hours going through all of the design ideas that y'all have sent along with things that I wanted to re-work to begin with.  I never realize how much work there is to do until I sit down and start wading through my three folders of information.  A lot of the work I did was spent just getting all of my design notes together and organizing in a cohesive fashion.

I am leaning towards the following "program" at this time and am anticipating 3 months re-write from the ground up.

1) Rolodex "based"
2) Envelope Printer
3) Fax Cover Page Printer
4) Fax Cover Page designer
4a) Form Letter Designer/Printer (possible add-on)
4b) Multi-select and print of Form Letter/Fax Cover pages (part of Form Letter Designer)
5) FAST - goal is to still be under 30s to load, select/enter information, print envelope
6) Print to any size envelope that is recognized by the printer
7) Easier adjustment of print alignment
8) all of the current features (as needed/applicable to new environment)

No this will not be Microsoft Word quality word processor/letter writer.  The purpose is to be quick and easy.  Also, task specific.  Therefore, I am really aiming to make this more of a correspondence manager.  Any letter, envelope or fax cover page will be stored in pdf with time and date stamp for tracking purposes.

Anyway, just wanted to post another quick update.

Take care


Updates and New Versions

I know it has been a long time since I have done an update on the progress of the new version.

This past year, I became a licensed private investigator.  Predominately to do Computer Forensics on behalf of a PI I had been providing computer support to.  However, I have also been doing "standard" PI work during this time also, you know, Child Custody surveillance jobs, Suicide/Murder investigations, cold case murder investigations, and so on.
