It's not just a calculator app

I've updated my reverse polish calculator for Windows 10.

Reverse polish is a mathematical notation in which the operators are place to the right of the operand.  For example 3 + 4 becomes 3 4 + in reverse polish.  Calculations in RP are much simpler as you do not need to use parentheses to indicate the order of operation of your calculation.

My reverse polish calculator allows you to perform calculations in RP, but it does much more than that!

1. Load a web page.  Simply type the url of the page you want.

Not just a calculator.  Type a url to open any web resource.
2. Load any resource from your computer using the open command.

Open specific resources, or type one of several commands for navigating windows file explorer.

3. Search the web.  Anything the calculator does not processes as a direct command, url or rpn expression is sent to the browser of your choice.

4. Run Windows Shell commands.  Windows 10 allows you to run shell commands allowing for command line access to all parts of the computer.  You can runs these shell commands directly from your calculator using the shell command.

Run Windows Shell commands directly from the calculator
5. There are loads of new features in the online help, including how to rename your window, lock your computer and restart your machine.

6. Did I mention you can perform reverse polish calculations with the calculator?

Perform calculations using binary, hex, octal or denary numbers.  Up to 26 variables.  Accumulator mode on/off.  Timer.

New update for Have Spell Will Travel #havespell

New updates.
I've updated my #javascript adventure game.  There are improvements to the interface; more quests and locations; a new temple and junk shoppe have opened in the village; cursed items (that cannot be dropped unless you visit the temple first) and loads more encounter too.  I've made a few adjustments to game balance, including the starting attributes for characters.  Most of the paid-for items now cost much less of your hard-earned gold too.

If you want to kill some kobolds, then Have Spell Will Travel is for you.


Cool stuff I found in my #pocket

If you haven't already discovered pocket, then I do suggest you check it out.  Pocket is a tool for saving articles and web pages for later. When you stumble across something interesting and you want to remember where it is for later, then just put it in your pocket.  There is a useful chrome extension for this and also Windows metro apps like Latermark.

Here are a few cool things I have saved in my pocket.

Interactive Map of Penguins

Interactive Penguin World Map.  Click on the red regions for information about penguins.  Why do polar bears not eat Penguins? They struggle to get the wrappers off.

Watch the Moon cross in front of the Earth, as seen from a million miles away

This EPIC gif...

Taken from the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), NASA have released a stunning gif showing the Moon crossing in front of the Earth.  That's the seldom-seen 'dark' side of the moon crossing the blue orb of the Earth.

I made a #JavaScript #English #Dictionary

Introducing my online Oxford English dictionary.  Search for a word and the program finds all words that contain that word.  Furthermore, search within the results: click on any of the words in the definition and you will get a definition for that word, and all words that contain that word (and so on....).  The dictionary keeps track of your previous searches in case you ever need to go back.
