I have finally done it! Well, somewhat done it anyway.

Ever since we moved into Daybreak we have had the misfortune of experiencing the foul stench that is (we believe) the Trans Jordan Cities Landfill. As we live directly down wind from the facility, its on a monthly if not weekly cycle that around 6 or 7:00pm the stench permeates the air.

It was not until recently (past few months) that I decided enough was enough. So I came up with a snazzy name, bought the domain, and built the application on a fairly new technology (for me that is), Windows Live Virtual Earth.

Granted this is the .01 release, but at least I finally have something done and tracking submissions. I would eventually like to customize by adding user profiles, custom reports, widgets, etc. But for now, what is there will suffice my ego.
