UpdateMinder Signup







January 22, 2005, Bristol, Rhode Island — The latest trainMinder status can be summed up In five words:

    We’re still working on it.











But we’re much closer.

Rather than project a fixed delivery date, from this point forward, we will begin updating this website every two weeks to give everyone the latest status.






What’s Happened Since Last Update






There are many exciting things happening in trainMinder’s world:

  1. Re-established Link with Greenbergs Guides — We were able to revisit the issue of licensing the Greenbergs Guides with Kalmbach Publishing and have successfully agreed on an arrangement to incorporate the Greenbergs Price and Market data into trainMinder!
  2. Finalizing Links with Two Major Toy Train-related Vendors -- We are putting the finishing touches on a data and image exchange with two of the premier companies serving the toy train community. We will publish more details as they become available, probably within a week or two.
  3. Finished the Most Complex Screens in the System -- We have been working steadily on trainMinder since Fall York and have finished several of the most complex screens in the system. We still have more work to do, but we make excellent progress each day.  We will continue to add trainMinder screen shots to the new Screen Shots Page as they become available.
  4. Now Taking Orders -- We are confident in our progress and are ready to start taking names and order information. We are NOT taking credit card information at this time, as we believe everyone would be best served by taking this information in conjunction with shipping the actual product. When trainMinder ships, orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis, so please visit our Order Signup Page to get on the list!

If you haven’t already done so, you might also want to sign up for our updateMinder service to be sure to receive the latest communications as they become available.






What’s Next?






At this point, we still have to finish programming on the actual product.  Our plan is to do this and to communicate with everyone according to the following schedule:

  • Finish programming trainMinder’s major features
  • Distribute product to a small number of Alpha testers (updateMinder notification will be sent)
  • Complete programming all features
  • Begin full Beta Testing (updateMinder notification will be sent)
  • Develop conversion program to import data from competitors’ products
  • Develop Help Content and Product Manual, Documentation, and Packaging (updateMinder notification will be sent)
  • Begin taking credit card orders via the Internet

In addition to the above, we will update this website at least every two weeks, beginning Monday,
January 22, 2007.










In Conclusion






We thank you for your continued patience and can assure you that completing trainMinder is our highest priority.  Please check back often to keep tabs on our progress.
