License Plates

Postby bcohio2001 » Sep 30, 2018 21:39

Way back in the "golden" years, before hand held devices and the such.
Parents had to keep their kids entertained on a long road trip.
Listening to the radio was usually not effective because parents at that time were not into "popular" music.

My parents had us watch for "Out of State" license plates.

As my username suggests, I am from Ohio. Living near Lake Erie. So often saw Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana and on rare occasions Ontario, Canada plates.

Please note that I am new to GitHub and need to figure it out as I go.

What are the controls?

I'm stuck on Add View Date.

Er…..OOPS!

Sorry forgot to include that online. (Will be uploading new program and data soon).
All plate information.
http://www.worldlicenseplates.com/

First run:
The first thing you will need to do is select which country you are from.
(At this time only have North American countries)
Scroll up by using the '8' on keypad, and down with the '2'. (Ensure "Num Lock" is on.)
When you have your country in view, press the 'enter' key.

Next, you will need to select your home "state", I am using the word state loosly, by using the same method.

Following this and later runs:
Line 1 : Country
A scrollable list of home and all bordering countries.
Line 2 : State
A scrollable list of states in selected country, excluding your home state.
Line 3 : Add view
Will bring up a scrollable list of the past 7 days to select.
Line 5+: View dates
A scrollable list of past views of the selected state.

Press the 'tab' key to move from each item listed above then press the 'enter' key to activate.

Basically, (no pun intended) to store how often you see an "Out of state" license plate.

When I drive or ride and see a "non-Ohio" plate, I sometimes wonder when the last time that I had seen it.

Next upload will include Central and South America. So am working on it.
