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.
hI have released a new application called Kweather a weather application for over 200.000 locations around the world.
It gives the current and forecast weather for a 24 hour period with choices for imperial and metric measurements.
One point to note I think the times are GMT but I could be mistaken, as I’m in England the server could be delivering the times as UK time.
It requires Wget a working internet connection and an API key from the Open Weather website.
I want to wish all users of my software a happy Saint George’s Day
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.

I have made some improvements to my train station time table application TrainTimes.
- If the train is late it is marked in red with how many minutes late
- If the train is early it is marked in blue with how many minutes
- If you move or resize a window it remembers
- Slight layout change to the station time table
- On train time table all station details on one line
- Your station marked in red on train time table
As an aid to my to my Train Times application TrainTimes I have uploaded a csv file called stations.
The inspiration for the csv file was the Riscository article on TrainTimes.
