Will cStatus become multilingual at some point in the future?
At the location where I work (in Paraguay) Internet is getting spotty at best. But when we ask for support from our ISP they usually sent over a crew to change the modem before even looking at the real problem. A waste from our time as well as theirs. We used to make dumps with WireShark to show them where things go wrong in the network, but the language barrier between the lowly tech support and real networking analysis software is vast, and I don't mean the barrier between Spanish/English unfortunately.
cStatus is much more digestible by tech support, who will hopefully push our problem more quickly to the required tech support level. Still, I would think that if there would be language support in the future, it would help out even more quickly.
Well, a multilingual feature (and many others) would be great in cStatus.
cStatus is donationware with no limitations or nagging, but given that I have received several emails from people, ranging from support requests to thank-you, who are using cStstus for business purposes and do not make donations, I'm not expecting to receive much support for this project.
I'm fine with that, it was the way I release it but there is no incentive in making more than the features I need for myself, and maybe a couple of "simple" requests.
Unfortunately, I have a busy "day job" and a family and very little time to dedicate to this "freeware" software hobby, usually the software's I release will have the features I need and use. And I'm usually happy to share with other people.
My To Do list for cStatus is huge and starts to look tiresome.
Looking at the current cStatus version, it suits my needs. And I'm starting to think I have already a nice polished usable tool.
There is one feature I really would like to include that would add a huge value to cStatus: a bandwidth measurement tool between 2 locations.
So I still plan soon to improve a couple of things and add that tool.
If for some reason cStatus tool supports grows I think multilanguage would be very important, but I really don't know If it will get there.
