Saint George and Kevsoft

A bit on the late side, but I have added on my software site on every Saint George’s Day a little Cross of Saint George flag will fly on the site and a Happy Saint George’s Day message will display.

This should happen every year if I did not make a silly mistake. Happy Saint George’s Day everyone.

Fixing a Hard Space Bug With BusTimes

My application for RISC OS to get bus time table information for UK bus stops BusTimes has had a minor upgrade taking it to version 1.19

The upgrade is to fix a slight bug in which if a hard space was entered into any of the post code fields it would not fetch any information. This has been fixed, this bub would not effect most users of the application. Their is no new features so no video to accompany this upgrade.

It does require a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from the Transport API site.

If you like my software why not purchase some merchandise or donate some money through my Ko-Fi pages.

Set The Default Currencies

My application for RISC OS for currency exchange rate conversions called Currency has recently been upgraded to version 1.12

New in this version is the ability to set the default currency to convert from and convert to. Also when changing any currency then the current exchange rate is removed. Another update is that if for some reason there is a problem with the download of the exchange rate then the user will be informed.

I have a short YouTube video of the new features in action.

Currency requires a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from The Free Currency Converter API site

Insert a Tip Here

A few days ago whilst doing some development on one of my applications (sorry cannot remember which one) I accidentally hit the Insert key whilst the cursor was in an input icon and the contents of the clipboard was copied into that icon.

In all my many years of using RISC OS I never knew about this, this is on RISC OS 5.29 dated the 1st February 2022 and an ARMX6

Getting You Back With KevNav

My route finder application for RISC OS called KevNav has received it’s first update.

The update includes a few spelling errors, the window title which gives the total distance and time taken has been copied to the last item on the route, also on the route I have added the words hours mins and secs after the relevant bit of the time taken. The new feature in the application is the addition of a Return Journey button which then gives a reverse route to find your way back again.

I have uploaded a short YouTube video of the new feature in action.

The application requires a working internet connection and wget to work, with the data coming from the Transpolar API site.

KevNav Released

I have released a brand new application for RISC OS called KevNav a UK route finder.

KevNav gets the shortest allowable route between 2 UK post codes for either small private motor vehicles e.g small van car or motorcycle and push bikes. You have a choice of Imperial or Metric measurements.

By entering the from and to post codes the application will then give a route with the distance and approximate time it will take to get there. The route can be saved as either plain text, HTML or KML file formats. If an application that can display KML files has been seen by the filer like for example the excellent RiscOSM than a map option can be selected.

It requires a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from the Transport API site, as used by both of my TrainTimes and BusTimes applictions.

There is a short YouTube video of it in action for your viewing pleasure.

I have a couple of ideas for upgrades but I want to see how this holds at the moment.

The Time Zone On Your Computer Is

The answer to what it should be is one of the updates to my time zone information application for RISC OS called TimeZones.

One of the updates is addition of a new button which when pressed will get your time zone based on your IP address. The other update is a cosmetic change in which if a time difference is not a complete hour then the minutes will be displayed instead of a decimal fraction e.g 1:30 Hour instead of 1.5 Hour.

TimeZones does require a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from the World Time API site.

I have also uploaded a short YouTube video of the new features in action.

BusTimes Moves To Version 1.18

Also the busses are grouped by route so that stops in London work better and more busses can be displayed for stops that have plenty of busses passing through in a short period of time.
