Ahha! I found you you sneaky post diary link. I'm thinking that yosh might wantt o put a quicknav bar up or soemthing. *shrug*
Well ISFree is really close to working at 0.1. I'll probably release as of March 1st. Now that I have it at minimal functionality to actualy be useable I can go back and rip out and reword all the really crappy code I did while learning C all over again. :)
The nice thing is I think I have the answer to securing the DB connect information and securing ISFree from the system users. This way you don't have to have a dedicated server for your billing. You can just use nighttime spare cycles to do the billing runs localy. MUCH faster this way. Definitly faster than perl will ever be.
I'm still searching for some good ideas on how to handle one time billings, like an hour of admin work, or the sale of a software package, etc. Can it be done or is this goign to end up being a kludge thats necessary to make ISFree a complete package instead of just another castrated recurring services only package?
An extra feature I implemented by necesity... custom monthly billing. :) I should probably go back in and setup custom setup fees as well as the recurring feee. *sigh*
well, heres to what will hopefully be a package for the acountants and admins that they will both like and doesn't suck from overcomprimising! CHEERS!
