Anyone know what's going on with the website or have any alternatives?

It has been down for quite some time

The code is available on github but I have no idea what to do with it or how to make it run

Any web experts want to chime in?

That was hands down the best calculator!

I'm a Software Engineer specializing in web applications. Can you send me the URL to the GitHub repo? I'll see what I can do.

Unfortunately, Carlos Flores aka Wet passed away a few months ago. He was trying to move YANC to an ORG to enable others to control the site. Sadly, it was never completed before his death.

I've been working on a replacement. Until then, the link above does indeed seem to be a fork of the same open source code he started.

He as well as his contributions to the hobby will be sorely missed.

Blaher, Here is the link to YANC at github.

That sucks. I've been using his calculator for a while now.

I'm sorry to hear about Wet's passing. I didn't know him, but certainly appreciated his calculator. Thanks to those who have taken up the torch on getting the calculator running again!

I noticed that the accumulation over time calculator is also on github and I took a quick look at it. It may be a little more work to get that one up and running (and require more bandwidth for the generated images) but I've forked it and I'll take a closer look at it when I get home from work. Porting it to another platform and rendering the graphs in the browser rather than on the server may be a good possibility to make it easier/cheaper to host.

The project is in what looks to be Ruby Sinatra. I'm not much of a Ruby guy, but can get by with the basics. I however had issues with trying to get ruby to run nutes.rb, and it kept complaining about error after error. After fixing five errors in, I assumed I was doing something wrong. Probably just a mis-version match between ruby, sinatra, and r18n. The project looks simple enough, and the only real complexity is the language support which is handled by r18n.

iceburg, it looks to just be using Highcharts, which just forms an SVG (XML) and the browsers processes it as an image. Shouldn't be taking up any extra processing on the server side.

Probably just use the clone someone threw up for now, and maybe they come forward to prove it'll be up for the long haul and offer updates. If all else fails and there's no Ruby guys that take it up, I might look in to initializing a new latest rails instance, throwing the sinatra code in to it, seeing if I can tweak it to work with all the latest versions running, and probably get by with throwing it up on a free Amazon Web Services server. I'm pretty sure however, that the new site you guys found will be the new site for some time to come.

Oh no! He's a good guy. He helped me on my calculator.

Yeah, same here. I was thinking it would be easier to port it to a different platform using a different chart library than it would be to get all the configuration right. Probably overly optimistic, but it doesn't seem to be terribly complicated.

Re SVGs, I saw comments about saving the images and assumed they were raster. SVG would be much better.

Yes, he certainly was. He helped me with several projects as well.

I do have a basic calculator running here. This one is FAR from done. In fact, it will only look decent in new browsers. I've yet to add corrections for browsers or devices. There is still a lot left to do. I abandoned the Windows based one for HTML5.

I'll be happy to leave this as is until I can get everything in place and working. At least the numbers for dosing are accurate which is what we all basically need.

Thanks a lot, Zorfox for making this as a stop measure until something gets figured out.
