Just discovered this (and these) (though they may be known here) :

Apart from the fascination, the technique is very interesting.

Not sure if this site fits in here, but it contains some quite fascinating "knowledge" (despite the old-fashioned style) :

Hi skwire - just a small bug (that may have been reported already) :

if you enable the date/time etc in the titlebar, the time doesn't keep up with the system time until a refresh (either manual or weather data refresh).

No big deal.

Hi, if I do an update check through sWeather I get a new version : v1.4.7 build 2 but there's nothing on the sWeather site about it - a minor update I suppose ?

If you find that funny ... ?

Personally I found that holocaust "joke" pretty offensive.

On a thread marked NSFW, I'm hesitant to remove it.

Still, when i see such posts, like the political posts, i just think ah, maybe that's one of the reasons we seem to have less and less new people joining our family here..

Maybe I'm being overly sensitive -- I'm just more and more feeling like we have to do something to improve this place, and seeing posts like this doesn't make me feel good.  Perhaps if I felt like we were a thriving community it would just be a tiny drop in the water.  But I feel like we are treading water and things like this start to feel like we loading up our own pockets with stones.

I should say that ArizonaHot has posted tons of interesting inoffensive posts, so I know know offense was meant by this one, and I don't mean to single any one out.  Like I said, in the whole scheme of things, this isn't a big deal -- it's just coming at a time when i'm spending a lot of time worrying about how to make this site a more welcoming site for new people..

Mouser - thanks for your comments and for being so frank about your sentiments. I feel exactly the same way. I have not been a prolific poster here and have never coded anything, but I've always enjoyed hanging out here and have used and still use many of the programs and coding snacks on DC (though I'm sorry to say that I've never donated as I live on a shoe-string ) - however when, fairly recently, things started going a bit weird here - about the time you decided to create the Basement board - and seeing that many coders no longer contributed to the site I almost closed my account with a strong feeling of disappointment.

May I make a radical suggestion : that this board (...NSFW...) becomes a child board of the Basement, and then you slap a "registered members only" permission on the Basement. In that way those that wish to talk about gun laws, police states and so on can happily do so amongst themselves, whereas all other visitors can concentrate on what DC is about ?

Thanks.

skwire : out on another limb here though this may have been mentioned before (was it ?) :

when using the ten-day view and running the mouse pointer over the lower row to see the temperature conversions you get the days and conversions for the row above (i.e. the first five days) and when doing the same for the upper row, you get nothing at all.

I'm not sure if that is very clear but you'll get the gist.
Thanks.

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: International Currency Transfers on: June 06, 2013, 12:21:29 PM
I am looking into the question of making currency transfers between the UK and the US and wondered if anyone had any experience of, or thoughts on, a cheap (and reliable/secure) method.

Using an online service would not be my first choice but in general it does seem to be cheaper so I may have to use that method.

One thing I have come across is http://www.currencyfair.com/company which needs to be set up online but transactions can then be carried out by phone.
Has anybody ever used them? Has anybody ever heard of them?
Gives a whole new world of meaning to P2P!

Looks interesting but why does a site/company based in Ireland, England and Australia have an option to load the site in Polish ??? (See top-right on site.)
