Re: Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

as an app developer i can understand the issue. but can you atleast open source the project incase others want to bug fix/improve? I've not thought about Open Sourcing the project but to be honest I think this would be of limited use. The code has 'evolved' over the years, starting as a Java applic...

Re: Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

Ok - I've made this thread Sticky and updated the original post with the link to my blog where the installer packages can be found. There are a couple of installers on the post but they contain the same level of functionality - one is the current version as pulled from the Google Play Store and the ...

Re: Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

Just a quick note to say thanks for the work you have done on the app over the years, shame its had to go the way it has, but as you say its beyond your control at this point really. It might be worth making this topic a sticky/pinned topic once you have a download link available if thats possible?...

Re: Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

There were issues with the datafeed from the FillLPG website which I've (hopefully) addressed now. The issues were caused by overseas users entering stations which contains non-English letters - the site doesn't handle these but the result is a corrupted datafeed. I blogged about my decision to pull...

Re: Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

Quick update - I've unpublished the app in the Play Store now (there was no reason to wait really). As mentioned above, this will not affect existing users with the app currently installed and I will be making the installation file available via my website later this week. This installation file wil...

Removing the FillLPG App from the Play Store

Well today a tipping point was reached and this is fair warning that I will soon be removing the FillLPG app from the Google Play Store! DON'T PANIC..! If you currently have the app installed it will not (to my understanding) be removed from your device (see 'Publishing Status' here => https://suppo...

Re: Forum Instability

It won't have escaped your attention that the forum is still experiencing some problems :-( The current hosting server was also serving up my own website as well as one for a client of mine - these were also being taken down by the forum which was a problem. I've taken the opportunity to move those ...

Re: Forum Instability

That shouldn't make any difference - I think it's just some overdue maintenance. On the subject of spam, I'll be looking at some additional plugins shortly which will hopefully put a big dent in that. I'll trial them out on the test site to see what the configuration options are etc and then install...

Re: Forum Instability

I've deleted and recreated the search indexes so we'll see how it goes.

The forum has been stable of the past few weeks so maybe my tweaks to the server have sorted it - time will tell I suppose.

Re: Forum Instability

Found the maintenance option but it will probably be quite an intensive process so best left until the quieter times before I run it - one evening I expect.

Re: Forum Instability

It could well be - some of the tables that required attention were related to searches etc. We've been up for a week now so maybe the issue of stability have been sorted (maybe not) - I'll see if there is anything I can do about the search speed, maybe the forum software has a maintenance routine fo...

Re: Forum Instability

You may have noticed further disruptions to the forums availability over the past few days - apologies for this. This morning I put the forum into maintenance mode and performed some database repairs and optimisations - it looks like some of the tables may have been left in an inconsistent state fol...

Re: System Upgrade

Form what I can tell the server is currently running on UTC so that should be fine.

At the bottom right of the page I have a note stating 'All times are UTC' and everything looks fine. Brian mentioned that his profile was set to UTC+1 so maybe you need to check there.

Forum Instability

Some of you may have noticed the forum displaying database (mysql) errors on and off over the past few months. I've been working on identifying the root cause of the problem which appears to be a lack of available memory. This is odd as the server it now resides on has been running a couple of Wordp...

System Upgrade

I will be installing a system update over the weekend - probably Saturday afternoon.

This should take about an hour unless the upgrade gremlins decide to pay me a visit.

During that time the forum will be inaccessible - wish me luck ;-)

Re: FillLPG for Android is Dead

Glad to hear that the site isn't going away anytime soon :-)

As mentioned above, as long as the site is around then the app will remain in the Play Store.

Re: FillLPG for Android is Dead

Its not dead yet, but the crucial point is if the website goes, the app becomes useless, as its data source for any new installs no longer exists, and existing installs become out of date. At the end of the day this is the crux of the issue - if the FillLPG site goes dark then the app becomes usele...
