    G feature calculator?

    On a Swiss Army Knife forum they came up with a way to figure out which knife has which features. You click on the blades you want and it comes up with the knife.

    Is there such a thing for the G-Shock? If not, who wants to make one?

    I posted this first in the Articles section by mistake. If it can be deleted from there go ahead.

    Thanks,

    Chad

    Neat idea. No idea how it could be achieved, though.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Re: G feature calculator?

    I've actually been thinking of doing a database of G-Shocks so that people could find a watch they wanted by selecting the features for quite a while now. People would be able to add their own entries in as well, considering there are hundreds of G's it would be too much work for one person.

    I think the only problem I have is finding a (free) host for all this data. It'd have to offer a database as well. I don't think there are any free hosts that offer databases.

    OpenOffice is free and includes a database which I'm almost sure will handle MS Access files, if that's any help.

    please do post it. it'll save me the trouble of writing down all the things i'm looking for, already considering my next one...
    and it'll will also save the patience on fellow forum friends, who i shall bother with model requests and advice...

    more seriously, this would be a great reference.
    i keep downloading and reading module manuals (not complaining, i actually like to read the manuals) but i'm yet to find my 'perfect' g-shock...

    i'm sure this would be helpful to a lot of forum members.

    Well you know Kim and I are working on a database (spreadsheet actually) that list ALL G-shocks (Kim's part) and I'm filling in with pictures of every model...(arrrgggggggggg).. it is a very slow process... but you are welcome to the spreadsheet... maybe one day we can marry both efforts and have the greatest g-shock database ever, complete with stunning examples of every watch.

    Kim is hosting this effort on his most excellent website.

    I'm thinking online database. That way people can update it and there will be a single central repository of information.

    I think google have a free online database you can use. I'll have a look in a bit.

    Gawain, I was actually thinking of what you and Kim were doing as well. Hopefully we could merge the two together.
