These are the projects I maintain alive, wether Active or Inactive.
Some of the projects I developed were way ahead of their proper time; as a consequence I had an impossible time finding support and funding for them. That gave way to other companies to take the lead in fields where I should have led. But such is life, or so I've been told.
Nonetheless, as a developer I am unable to stop developing something new. So here are my major projects.

Delivery Teams is a cloud computing, complex system that works, originated from a simple system that
It allows the seamless integration of Restaurateur Pro POS with real-time online orders; optionally, it can simultanously signal the local Delivery Team to deliver the orders, in those instances when the restaurant does not magane their own delivery. It's workflow is as described below:
Way ahead of it's proper time, this project was developed in 1992.
In it's original design, the "server" side of the project was written in Clipper by my friend Francisco González and operated over a Novell® network. The setup allowed for as many stations as phone lines were contracted, those stations been manned by trained phone receptionists who typed the orders into the system's pool.
The "pool" of received orders was scanned every 15 seconds; if an order was found, the delivery address recognized, the "server" called the appropiate shop using 2400bps modems, and the order was "NetMailed" to and processed by the receiving store.
It was a simple system that worked!
In its current version, 29 years later, it is a decentralized, cryptographically secured, RESTful Web Service.
By appying the latest available technologies, - the Web evolves continuously and so has cryptography - the simple system that worked became a complex sytem that works.
I was inspired by FidoNet's 'NetMail' technology to develop our own routines to submit the orders to the corresponding shop, taking about 30 - 45 seconds for the process to complete.
Take note of the fact that while the Internet existed by 1992 few people outside of academic circles had even heard about it.
Unless proven wrong, at the time of it's launch this product was the first system of its class in the World.This happened 12 years before the launch of grubhub.
Restaurateur Pro is a rich, full-featured POS System designed and programmed from scratch
specifically for restaurants.
It was custom made for Omia's Restaurant in Sterling, VA in 1999.
It features, in addition to all the major capabilities of any other POS System ever designed for restaurants, the Online Orders module allowing the POS to receive and process orders originated in the web the same way as if the orders were typed in locally.
Should I ever decide to market this product again, it will be in the form of a RESTful Web Service.
