Hey all, I’m a going to college as a Computer Programmer (first year…so I’m still a ‘newbie’)
I made a ‘unicycle picker’ and put it on my club’s website
Can you please check it out, and perhaps offer advice? (on content)
I was graciously allowed to use pics from unicycle.com, but if you have a unicycle that isn’t listed, please send me a pic of the uni, and the combination of buttons (on my form) that would find it.
Try to estimate a canadian price, as well.
Your site is cool. I really like seeing people put the effort into forming unicycle clubs. It takes a huge effort and you people that do it are all to be commended. I like your progress report for each rider, too. It’s a nice feature and when you collect alot of young riders that feature will probably really be exciting for them.
The unicycle picker in MS Explorer 5.5:
The Logo was huge. I was unable to get it to tell me that I needed a Coker no matter how much I coerced it.
The unicycle picker in Netscape 4.79:
No Logo without downloading a Quicktime plugin. No selection buttons show up so no selections can be made.
The unicycle picker in Opera 6.04:
All the features are there but the picker is inoperable. It never responds to your selections.
I just hate the fact I need a unicycle thats over $500 for trials/Muni.
It looks like a really good tool though to pick out a unicycle for someone who doesnt know what they need. Maybe Unicycle.com will be interested in purchesing your softwear. Or you know just steal it cuz that works too…
As to the application itself, it kept telling me there were no unicycles available that met my requirements. Specifically, I marked “over 180 lbs”, “Intermediate”, “Muni”, “1.5 foot drops or less” and “$1000 or more” and I was told there were no matches. However there are cycles that match that.
That was close. I was down in the basement and noticed that Blue Shift was starting to fade. It must have been right when John was trying to buy it. That weasel. It was raining here most of the day so John apparently got bored and tried to do some sort of funky material transfer hocus-pocus.
I see your point, but I must still question the depth of your program. It is missing the “I want to spend at least $1000 dollars so I can replace the respect of talent with the respect of hardware” checkbox.
More to the point, it might be useful if your program had a few choices for “all/any”. Then you might return several matches, which you could then arrange in a priority. You might put low cost as a higher priority, for example.
