Building My Own FIDS.

Sun Jun 15, 2008 4:21 am

I've decided to build my own FIDS with 2x 15" LCD in my living room for decorative purposes. I'm so far half done with the final layout done and in testing progress. I'll keep updating this thread until it is fully operational, hope you guys like my ideas!

there are still lots of bugs, we are under going beta 2.5 right now. I sure will share with you after it's completed  

I'm planning on inviting 20 people to test out the pre-release version, i'll put you on my list!
and the 20 invited user will also recieve the full version when it's completed, while we are planning to sell the software for USD$5 to the general public.

all info must be input by user. You can design your own header into whatever airport you want.

This looks really cool. I'd love to be a beta tester also. It would be cool if it had boarding announcements and such to go along with it.
