PSM2 progress so far

Acquired the necessary RFID equipments (Tags and readers), except there's a problem - they don't seem to be detected by the O/S.

It won't work on Win 7 64 bit, so I have to use virtual PC to set it up. That being said, I still have not a bit of idea to make them work. I could use some guidance...

PSM2 progress

So far the system's database is already in progress, but the database is only good for data access only; the RFID tracking system is the most critical part. So far there is one at here that gives me a good insight on how it should be: http://www.ns-tech.co.uk/blog/2010/02/active-rfid-tracking-system/

The problem with the sample is the back side is written with Python, unless I can take a crash course to learn Python in the short timeframe then I may need to think of translating the Python to Java somehow. Front side is written with PHP so it should be good.

More updates to come in later time.
