    1st Shot the values 87. 89. and 93 are loaded from an external text file so you can set it to low. mid. high. reg. prem. plus. whichever you prefer.

    2nd Shot shows gas fill date spead out on the calender.

    3rd Shot shows the oil change date currently set (it will also show all oil change dates done in the past as well)

    Made some other major changes to the way the data is stored it is not more efficient



    This is so sweet!!! I can't wait to give it a try!

    You will make it so that mile can be converted in km, gallons in litres...right?

    ok so im reworking the code for optimization and the best way to store the database.
    ran into a few problems but have worked most of the kinks out

    i need some feedback on reminders
    im going to make it remind based on 29 or less days remining till the event
    and have it only pop up on the initial load of the program
    once the event has expired the reminder will popup everytime you go to the main page ( i havent really figured if this would be too annoying )
    im looking into a way to make it ignore the reminder once ignored for one full day

    same will go for mileage within 500 miles or so
    ill try to make this a customizable feature where you specify the amount

    hmm what else
    still working on some scaling issues but im contemplating making the apps native resolution 800X480 but i dont know if people will want to run it fullscreen (DEFINATELY NEED SOME FEEDBACK ON THIS)

    thats about it

    PROGRESS

    I haven't used this app yet but going on just common things these are my suggestions.

    1. For reminders I won't do it for 29 days or less unless you're giving the user an option to tweak this. I'll make it 15 days or less. I really don't need to be reminded a month before I need maintenance.
    2. If the event expires don't let it pop up again. It needs to be gone; of course unless you can make this an option. Personally, I wouldn't want it popping up over and over.
    3. If you can let it pop up on the initial load but also give a quick way to check for upcoming events.
    4. Same goes for the mileage
    5. For screen resolution you best bet is to give the user an option. People use all sorts of different screen size with mostly being 800x600 for carpc. I may be wrong on this but again options are good.

    Well that's what I suggest anyways. Good luck. Is there a beta version of this out?
