On stock trading
Stock trading is fun.. well, when you make money of course. There are days when you wish you didn’t buy that crappy stock, today it’s intel.
They released apparently bad numbers yesterday and took the plunge:
Uh oh !
This leads me to the introduction of Invest, a replacement/companion for gtik, the stock ticker currently in gnome applets.
Feel the Tango love
It allows one to create a portfolio, and track its progress in terms of gain/losses.
It also features a yahoo graph viewer, with the options found on their website, very nerdy !
The panel applet, with the overview dropdown
The portfolio editor, note the particularly bad taste of mine..
This is the first release, nothing official yet, but i know there are people who like these things.
I have discussed with Christopher Aillon and he gave me really nice ideas for future developpment.
Maybe this can be integrated in gnome 2.16, if I receive positive feedback
I welcome any patch/comment/suggestions. The future applet will have a color indicator instead of numbers in the pane, to take les space and be less anti-private, in case someone is looking over your shoulder. Further improvements also include gconf usage and maybe general applet polishing.
