    Opticampus

    Does anyone know what happened to opticampus.com? Does anyone have an alternative they use for calculations such as wrap compensation?

    Yes, it seems to be web.com, which I would assume was/is their web designer. Any alternatives?

    It looks like Darryl's family hasn't kept the domain up to date. Here's a link to the site using the IP address:

    Harry's website is my alternative:

    https://makeoptics.com/harrychiling/.../calculators/2

    although I will miss Opticampus' thickness calculator


    Thanks Steve for the link!

    FYI, I've also updated the OptiCampus link on the main OptiBoard page to go to the IP address.

    Thanks drk. The link Steve made available works fine. Cannot access through the link you provided any longer. Have a great day. In addition the site that merrymaker posted seems sound also. https://makeoptics.com/harrychiling/.../calculators/2

    Tried numerous computer stations within the lab and tried Google, Chrome and Explorer. Nothing. Everything else seems normal. What is really strange is that I used the program yesterday. The gentleman who put the program together I believe passed away some time ago and it would be up to his family to keep the domain up to date as Steve mentioned earlier. Thanks again.

    FYI, OptiCampus is located on the OptiBoard server. And when I moved servers a couple of months ago, OptiBoard and OptiCampus both got new IP addresses. I did try to contact Darryl's family to inform them of this change and the changes they needed to make to the DNS settings for OptiCampus but I never got a response. I will keep Darryl's masterpiece available for as long as I own OptiBoard and run my own server.

    Thank you Steve! You've always been selfless for the preservation of optical knowledge. This is why we should all support optiboard through membership dues. Well worth the price of admission, and the continuance of this knowledge.

    Ryser secretly owns Optiboard.

    "Steve" is only a bot.

    Betcha didn't know that.

    P.S. Yesterday, I could access opticampus.com. Today, no. Weird.

    No, Ryser does not own anything under cover and is nothing else than a member of OptiBoard, that appreciates that there is is an organization on this huge web that gives a chance to optical professionals to speak their mind.

    It is available in the play store as an app on android, then I have the Web version available on my site. The donations go to Darryl's family, many of the programs were created from knowledge I gained by probing his mind. Often times we'd call it an arms race where we would see who could come out with a program the fastest. I beat him on the tschernings ellipse calculator I think that's the only one I got the jump on. I have a few more modules complete as well as a way to extend a desktop installed version for others that want to create additional modules for the program, however none of it is released until Darryl's donation page reaches it's funding goal. In Kickstarter fashion I will set a few additional milestones:

    $25k = a windows executable version
    $30k = code unlocked with an API to install and create additional modules
    $35k = 2 additional modules
    $40k = contact lens calculators 2 modules
    $45k = 2 additional contact lens modules
    $50k = surprise Goal (business modules, social media modules, ability to customize for you business)
    1st* HTML5 Tracer Software
    1st Mac Compatible Tracer Software
    1st Linux Compatible Tracer Software

    *Dave at OptiVision has a web based tracer integration package that's awesome.
