Convert this to a web application or watch it die very quickly
I learned html and over about a year, converted this into a very nice web site with all of the functionality of the CD. The problem was nobody would pay for this to make it worth my while AND Google’s AdSense program did not yet exist. I started to advertise the site for sale with no serious buyers. While at Oshkosh, I was introduced to some people from Dynamic Systems Integration who were bidding on a NASA proposal called SATS-Net; this was supposed to be the Next Gen Small Aircraft Transportation System. They asked me to bid with them so they could use my databases as the core for the program. We won the proposal but when it came time for the implementation, they only wanted part of the database, As a result, it wouldn’t be worth the effort I would need to put into it. We discussed it for awhile and decided it was in their best interest to purchase the Airport Guide web site.
I was a bit upset about selling Airport Guide after my 10,000+ hours of work that went into its development but I had free time again. After a few years I noticed that the domain name, AirportGuide.com, was not being used except to redirect people to their new site. I really wanted it back even though I didn’t know what I would do with it. In June 2008 I was able to purchase the domain name back but as I said, what would I do with it?
