Of the claimed 7,000 copies of this software downloaded very few would actually be in use. Like me, they would have all good intentions but it will never happen. Always end up with to many other things to do and to many distractions.
This software could be used for any form of control or automation, the fact that it can be used for model trains is a bonus. The fact that it has been given a slant towards train control only serves to identify another use for it.
As i have said previously, done and done, way before KAM Industries put a Patent on what we had been doing for years beforehand.
My interests now lean more towards home automation and expanding on my car PC.
