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 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

One Library To Bind Them

My three UK  representative checking applications  MPdata+, for keeping tabs on your Member of Parliament, MSPdata+ for keeping tabs on your Members of the Scottish Parliament and MLAdata+ for keeping tabs on your Members of the Northern Irish Assembly.

All three applications uses a library to convert HTML entities and convert them into text.

All three applications requires Wget a working internet connection and the information comes from They Work For You.

Elections Comes To MPdata+

My UK  Member of Parliament  application MPdata+ has been  updated  with upcoming elections in your area.

A new window opens with the date time and what type of election it is, with buttons for more information which takes you to Who Can I Vote For site, the other button downloads the .ics file.

The data comes from Who Can I Vote For site in a .ics file.

This is my first .ics file conversation so I’m interested in locations that break the new feature.
