Its much easier to read, although it thinks I'm in Dublin.

Dave,
well done on creating a very useful prog.
I cant think of any other way to improve it really.
As far as I'm concerend all that code writing stuff is
black magic.

Oh,
and apparently I'm a Dub also!

Another addition;

This time a calculator for the local rise/set of the moon and azimuths of same.

webtreatz.com/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,85/

Feedback once again appreciated.

I have discovered an issue though. Its to do with UT versus local time. e.g. when a time is calculated as 23:00 (for example) and daylight saving is on the time is displayed as 24:00. It gets worse if you are in a timezone like +3hrs when it will then show as 27:00. I will fix that tomorrow so it shows in the next day as it should.

Regards and Clear Skies,

Dave.

Just an idea Dave:
Would it be possible to make these programs into java-based applets and suitable to upload onto a mobile phone?

I'll try the 3G connection later and see if it works.


That will be interesting. I would expect the location it gives will be the location of the base station of your service provider.


Hi Dave,

I gave it a go and as you suspect the app still says Dublin.
