Witless protection program

Well, I spent several hours last night designing the porch layout. The hardrest part was trying to get a balance of symmetry because the existing stairs and door opening are off to one side, and I really wanted something that was aesthetically pleasing as well as structurally strong.

Trust me, it wasn't easy.

I finally ended up with something that is symmetrical, uses stock windows, and has structural members that are close enough together to handle the load on the roof. And as it turns out, it's almost all glass. Ten windows and a door. And it's tight-- I don't have a whole lot of wiggle room. I might look into the next size down for windows, but these almost exactly match the door width. And I have to admit that a mostly-glass porch is a kind of a nifty idea.

I don't have the height of the windows yet, but that's not as critical. I have some leeway in the design, and the stock windows come in enough varying heights to make it unlikely I can't find something.

Next I have to work on the elevation drawings.

Jeez louise...

No, we do not allow the user to perform an edit on that data. For one, the user is operating on a copy of the data from the database, and not the database itself, and that will cause synchronization problems.

For another, you never requested that the user be able to edit the data. Simply expecting it and hoping for it is not the same as communicating a requirement.

If you need the user to be able to edit the data in the field, it can be done, but it will take some rather extensive processing in the database synchronization step that will take time to design and develop. And that will cause the release date to be delayed, possibly by months.

Now how much did you really need that feature again?
