This web site collects together a few ideas, demos, and experiments.

I am interested in sailing, and electronics. I also have an interest in PIC micro controllers, after using one to turn on a cassette recorder to record the Radio 4 Shipping forecast while on a yacht away from the marina.

Simple JavaScript applications using data stored in a guest book

Here is a way of writing simple web applications by using a 'guestbook' server side script and client side JavaScript. There are loads of simple applications that just need a simple sorted list of user's amendments.

Some of these pages result from work on automating our sailing club web site.

Our sailing club needed some simple but useful applications without too much effort.

I did not want to be constrained to using an "off the shelf application" provided by the likes of www.bravenet.com

I wrote this essay for the TCN, who gave me a special commendation prize.

Community Groups communicate using the Web - A need for a simple booking system on the web. (MS word 97 )

The server side script collects the submits from the guestbook form and wrapped them in a JavaScript function call. Your web pages would include these and do the processing on the viewer's browser.

You write the body of the function to use the data in the guestbook.

I have submitted this to ScriptSearch.com
