Currency Updated To Version 1.11

My application to convert currencies Currency has been updated to version 1.11

New feature in this version is the addition of country data from the World Bank, the data is the GDP and population for the last 10 years as shown in the screenshot below:

Other improvements are that it has detection for the presence of wget clearing of it’s scrap files and increased size of the exchange rates icons to accommodate the exchange rate of the Venezuelan Bolivar as shown in the screenshot below.

I have also uploaded a short YouTube video of it in action.

Validate That VAT or GST Number

I have released a new application to validate Value Added Tax and General Sales Tax Numbers called VATGST.

Just enter the VAT or GST number and hit the OK button and after a short while you will get the results, as can be seen in the screenshot below.

You can save the information as a text file.

I have also uploaded a short YouTube video of it in action.

This application requires a working internet connection and Curl to work, plus an API key from VAT Sense.

The reason for an API key is that the free account allows 100 calls per 30 day period.

This is my first application using Curl.

Future plans for this application is for more formats to save the address.

MPdata+ 2.01 Released

My recently updated application to help keep tabs on your Member of the United Kingdom Parliament MPdata+ has received another update bringing it up to version 2.01

One of the updates is to fix a spelling mistake that had Debates spoken in last year was spelt Debates spoken in lasy year

Another update was to add an Early Day Motions by this MP button

Fixed a minor bug that if the constituency contained a comma the petition window and button did nothing and if you clicked on Early Day Motions button would cause a crash.

Better detection and reporting if wget is not seen by the computer.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.

I have also created a short YouTube video of it in action.

MPdata+ Goes To Version 2.00

I have updated my application for RISC OS that helps you keep tabs on your Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom MPdata+ to version 2.00

The reason for a version 2.00 release was that the code was getting harder and harder to maintain, plus some changes to the application itself with some external links removed as they no longer exists and new feeds added.

I have uploaded a short YouTube video of it action.

This application requires a working internet connection and wget to work.

Why not buy some of my merchandise or donate a few quid if you want.

Scroll Wheel Support For BusTimes And TrainTimes

Two of my UK public transport timetable applications BusTimes and TrainTimes have had a minor upgrade bringing BusTimes to version 1.16 and TrainTimes to version 1.15

The only new thing in both updates is support for the scroll wheel on the mouse. It was a simple update to implement as it was setting in the template files.

Set Default Board With Vkeyboard

My virtual keyboard application for RISC OS Vkeyboard has been upgraded to version 1.07

New in this version is the ability to set the default keyboard when the application is first loaded, plus the iconbar text displays what keyboard bis in use.

One thing I’m thinking of adding is a numeric keypad to the application, I’m not sure on the best approach for this the following options I’m thinking about our:

  • Just make the keyboard bigger with the keypad on the side
  • A window pane on the side
  • A separate window selected by an option

I have a short YouTube video of it action.
