BUGGER Database restoration successful!

I have successfully recovered the BUGGER database, and a good number of the release files.

In the short term, I will be aiming to re-launch BUGGER as the main project portal. Longer term however, I want to give BUGGER a massive overhaul and integrate it more with this site, so watch this space!

I've been posting some of the files that I have recovered in an attempt to fill some of the gaps in my project history, but will refrain from posting everything as I'll eventually be aiming to migrate everything back to BUGGER!


In the meantime, a readonly version of BUGGER is live at http://benscomputer.no-ip.org/BUGGER/ so that historic bugs can be viewed.

First Look at Vehicle Management System

The Vehicle Management System is still under heavy development, however a sneak preview is now available!



All development so far has been focused on functionality and not the aesthetic qualities of the interface. The template in use is therefore the aptly named "Fugly"

A newer, more refined template will be created before the first release, but Fugly should be sufficient to show the base concepts of VehMan.


Current Features

  • Fuel Usage Logging
  • Service/Maintenance Logging
  • Support for Multiple Vehicles
  • Fuel Economy Calculations
  • Support for Templates
  • Support for Multiple Languages



Planned Features

  • Support for multiple users (allowing vehicles to remain private or public)
  • Enhanced Statistics
  • Parts Database
  • Email Reminders for Tax/MOT













Although there's not much to look at at the moment, the underlying system is very customisable and should be reasonably easy to build templates for. Release 1 shouldn't be too far away!


BUGGER offline

Some may have noticed that BUGGER is no longer on-line. This is the result of a hardware failure on the hosting server, but there are currently no plans to restore the system. Instead, projects will slowly be migrated over to Bentasker.co.uk
