So, what's with "Flying Moose Technologies"? Okay, a quick
My good friend Elliot and I have been playing Starweb for many years.
Being a programmer by day I finally got fed up doing those mundane and
repetitive chores, such as putting together a combined turn sheet for my alliance
and decided that a computer should and could do it better. So I wrote a
little program that combined turn sheets into one mega turn sheet. And thus
the Starweb Analyzer was born.
Then came the natural progression... what about making queries of the
data? How about a GUI? Wouldn't it be great if it would check
orders for mistakes? And how about a way to map without getting buried
under a mountain of paper? Hey cool, now we can email the orders directly
to FBI from the Order Editor... and on it goes...
Now with all these great features, it seemed a shame to hog this little gem
all to ourselves. So Elliot went out to spread the word, and thus Flying
Moose Technologies was born. The name, an obvious parody of Starweb's
owner Flying Buffalo Inc., also reflects my personal affection to this large
beast... but that's another story.
Then along came Strategy Guild with
StarCon. Another natural application for our technology. The
business was setting a trend, we found our niche producing software that
helped make other applications better.
