Hi,

i hope everyone knows the incredible plant database PFAF : http://pfaf.org

I've spent many hours to write an offline and portable querying interface to use all the possibilities of the database, becaise i found the website very limiting and frustrating,



So i launch the alpha version of Permaflorae :

Screenshots and features :

Download :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/permaflorae/files/Package%20%28win%20only%29/alpha/permaflorae.zip/download

Instruction :
* Save the zip file on your computer
* Dezip
* Go to the folder
* Click to "permaflorae.exe"
* Enjoy !

Hey permaguy, amazing work on your program. I love to here an engineer like myself apply his/her skills to sustainable living solutions. I am in the mechanical field so I am working on a different angle, but I am getting my feet wet into developing concepts and potential technologies for aquaponics. If I need some advice on some circuitry or .NET framwork boards I will give you a buz if you are open to this. Oh, I gave you a big thumbs up on your project, enormous potential if you keep applying yourself!

Thanks for your kind words !

i'm dad since 10 days so no much time to answer

For a mac version, it depends on the server2go development team, it seams to be a beta available but one has to pay to access it,

with some skills in apache and mysql it is easy to install it on your mac computer,

sorry i have no mac and no time now to do a tutorial, but maybe one of you can do it

CONGRATULATIONS permaguy, first on becoming a Dad and second on such lovely work on the database. I feel honoured to be able to share it.

New Dad eh? All of a sudden you might see lots of jobs go on hold! But that lil baby sure has a gorgeous place to grow up.
