Scrabble Word Checker Added

I added a new page to the Kevsoft web site called Scrabble Word Checker which checks if a word is a valid Scrabble word and gives the normal score for that word, plus the definition of the said word. As a bonus it also does the same for Words With Friends.

Updates To TrainTimes

My UK train time table application  TrainTimes has had a few updates.

  1. Train time table updated to cope with upstream API change
  2. Template files changed to not to crash hen using HID

This application requires  wget and a working internet connection. The data comes from Transport API  site.

Get That Street Light Fixed With SteetFix

My new application StreetFix allows you to view and report problems in your neighborhood.

Viewing problems is done by entering a UK postcode which then displays up to 10 latest reports and by clicking on the description opens up a web browser to that reports page on  FixMyStreet the data comes from.

Catch That Bus

I have released a new application called BusTimes which very much like TrainTimes  gives the bus times for a particular bus stop, instead of train times.

bus1

It displays upto ten busses for that stop, and the bus timetable for that bus.

bus2

You need to supply the ATCOCDE for that bus stop, but no need to worry as the application can find the code from the longitude and latitude, don’t panic if you don’t have that as the application can get the longitude and latitude from the post code.

The application requires Wget  and a working internet connection, with the information coming from Transport API  site.

 

Put A Face To That Made Up Person

My  application  for creating random user data RandUser has been updated to version 1.01. It has a couple  of new features the main one is that displays a photo of the person concerned, with a new nation added Norway and another line in the address which is the name of the country.

RandUser

RandUser can best be described as a Lorem Ipsum for people rather than text.

The data comes from the random user site and requires a working internet connection and Wget to work
