This seems to have a problem with the plus sign: for example 5+6 gives the answer 30  Grin

hahaha nice catch oiosaveloy  Grin

lanux, to fix it change the alias from:
[copy or print]
    <AliasEntry>
        <AliasText>WolframAlpha</AliasText>
        <Score>1000</Score>
        <Regex>^wa (.*)</Regex>
        <Results>
            <Result>WolframAlpha: $$1 | http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=$$1 /ICON=icons\wolframalpha.ico</Result>
        </Results>
    </AliasEntry>
to:
[copy or print]
    <AliasEntry>
        <AliasText>WolframAlpha</AliasText>
        <Score>1000</Score>
        <Regex>^wa (.*)</Regex>
        <Results>
            <Result>WolframAlpha: $$1 | http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=$$u1 /ICON=icons\wolframalpha.ico</Result>
        </Results>
    </AliasEntry>

the use of $$u1 instead of $$1 when calling the url tells farr to urlencode the arguement which survives the browser call properly.

Note, if you want the result from wolfram alpha to display directly in your farr window, and not open your browser to show it, you can easily do that by changing the alias result from:
[copy or print]
WolframAlpha: $$1 | http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=$$u1 /ICON=icons\wolframalpha.ico
to:
[copy or print]
WolframAlpha: $$1 | htmlviewurl http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=$$u1 /ICON=icons\wolframalpha.ico

For calculations you can type in using C syntax, I've been using this little utility for years:

http://analogx.com/conten...amming/pcalc/Freeware.htm

The result is shown simultaneously in Float Hex Octal Integer and Binary.  To copy the one you want to the clipboard there's a little 'C' button to the right of it.  Also you can use variables.

Just thought many people may not be aware of it. smiley
