Bert Software by Rob Cobb

This web site is used to help me stay organized and keep you up-to-date on the various software projects for which I am responsible.  Most of the projects I work on involve C++ or PHP and often utilize HTML, XML and MySQL.

  • Fantasy Football Tools: Several thousand people use Draft Predictor each year to make their fantasy drafts more enjoyable.  It's success as a draft day aid launched a suite of tools that currently includes Draft Planner (a cheat sheet generator), averaged rankings, averaged ADP data, and a player tracking tool called My Locker.  This software is available exclusively through FantasySharks.com.
     
  • Web Site Development: Ziggielures.com and DarkHouseGearAndTackle.com are e-commerce sites built by combining professional graphic designs with custom store-front code. These sites allow the owner to manage their product display and accept PayPal payments.
     
  • Sim Racing Software
    • League Manager:  Sim Racing League Manager (SRLM) is a complete on-line solution for managing league results and standings. All schedules, results, news, etc. use your theme to become a seamless part of your league website.
    • League Database:  Sim Racing Leagues is a free directory that drivers can search to find a league to join. It is a self-service website that authorizes users by sending them email access keys.
    • Setup Diffs records telemetry data and displays it alongside the changes that have been made to the car setup.  This eliminates the need to copy down tire temps and attempt to recall which setup changes you made. Learn more...
    • Spotter Plugin is a vastly improved spotter/crew chief for oval racing.  Learn more...
    • Sim File Fetcher:  One of the tiresome duties required of Sim Racing league managers is keeping everyone updated with the latest cars and tracks.  This simple program interacts with your web site to download all of the files needed by racers who want to participate in your league.  Learn more...
