I posted a new beta version of the Environmental Benefit Calculator on urbanstreams.net today. The R package ‘Shiny’ has made the rewrite remarkably easy (and yet it has taken me forever). I still need to ‘prettify’ the page, but it seems to be mostly functional – doing all of the things that the old calculator did.
No enormous hurry to have it 100% operational, as it was confirmed to me yesterday that Optus are certainly not interested in keeping the custom of people who want to run their own websites, and refuse to unblock port 80 from their cable service. So, this site will continue to sit unnoticed in the dark, furtherest corner of the internet on port 83, until I can move to an internet service provider who is interested in meeting the needs of their customers.
