CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Joseph C. O'Connor's discussion Open Source Software and then more on Open Source.
"Mr. O'Connor, I don't know if my programming skills are good enough to be of help but I am very interested. I have become very disgruntled with the offerings available. I have been in need of replacing my old software for quite some time…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Robert Hain's discussion Schonstedt power switch
"At one point they would remanufacture the entire unit for a couple hundred bucks. Have you checked 3rd. party repair companies? It is just a rheostat switch. If you can get the specs on it, you should be able to find one that will work."

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Mitchell Grimm's discussion Compass Traverse Calculations
"All the above is basically true but remember, you have an angular closure that is independent of the summation of the latitudes & departures. How do the angles from the compass traverse compare with the angles from the transit (theodolite)…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Mitchell Grimm's discussion Compass Traverse Calculations
"The thing to remember about a compass survey is that if you get a bad compass reading, the error stays in that one leg. If you bust an angle in a transit survey, the error is carried through the entire traverse. You may have a bust in your compass…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"Yes Kate, you are right of course. Errors are most likely to be found in S/D boundaries hence the general rule is to use interior control for lots. However, nothing is cast in concrete. It is also true that the adjoining tract could have senior…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"I hope you are saying that "tongue in cheek". I believe I  detect a bit of sarcasm. I try to stay out of court but the last time the surveyor for the opposing party said something like that, namely, "some surveyors think they…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Anthony Whitlock's discussion Boundary procedure question!
"All have made some good points. I have done quite a bit of rural retracements & to borrow an expression from our British friends, some have been pretty sticky. A case I am presently working on has our county "Master in Equity" as the…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Todd Deckard's discussion HP41 ASTRO*ROM documentation
"I don't know anything about the ASTRO ROM but the old HP 41 had a program to calculate azmuths from star shots & sun shots. GPS has added another dimension & made the associated calculations & corrections more complicated but not…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Mason's discussion Spiral Curves in Legal Descriptions
"I don't have a clue about autocad since I have never used it. I was using CAD long before anybody ever heard of Bill Gates or Windows & found autocad over priced & not cost effective. Assuming the curve data is mathematically sound,…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Chuck Turlington's discussion VERTICAL DATUM VS MSL
"Very good Anthony. There isn't much left to say. The problem with MSL is it isn't consistent, ie: it varies from location to location. If you run levels from one tidal bench mark to another down the beach a number of miles away, the levels…"
Jul 2, 2017
CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Jason Cord Chambless's discussion Baseline Stationing Dilemma
"The stationing can be handled with equal stations or whatever it takes to tie the easements to the boundary/point of origin. Your real problem is determining the legal boundaries/locations of the easements or if one easement encroaches on the other.…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to Ian harvey's discussion New Trimble TSC3 controller & Windows 10 not connecting
"Paul said, ".........it's windows". I believe Paul has a point. I am making every effort to avoid Windows 10. Windows 10 was never designed to run technical scientific programs such as GPS post processing which is generally in Rinex…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to John Eckert's discussion Need help finding a good android gps app for boundary retracement.
"Yea, I can relate to that. I have technically been my own boss for the bulk of the last 40 years. The only exception was a brief interruption due to the big economic recession  of the year 2000+/-  & a divorce. Being self employed…"

CHARLIE B. AYCOCK, III replied to John Eckert's discussion Need help finding a good android gps app for boundary retracement.
"A realestate agent I work for quite often that deals primarily with rural acreage has one of those apps. It usually will get you close enough where you can see a corner if it is visible. I once used a loran to navigate my boat. I now have a…"

Hi Charlie, I just want you to know ,I have the deepest respect for you and got you back anytime.You and surveyors like us are a dying Breed that the world will never see again after we are gone.People today instead trying to find the problem and fixing it, their first solution is to use a computer to adjust everything,this means there is not a thing that is correct it's just adjusted,like you said a 90 is a 90 and a 100 is a 100 that what i was trying to tell him,make sure you two are on the same page with Angles and Dist. then go from there. No Charlie your are the kind of surveyor i have work for my whole life, be it one person or a large company and i had some good teachers.Your opinion means a lot to me

always.

And thanks for being a friend,billy
