    Hi,

    Since a couple of months I use a freeware software application for my Visor Dlx. It's called Currency and it can convert currencies.
    Source URL: http://members.nbci.com/HM_Martins/remote.htm
    The daily currency rate updates used to be supplied over the Internet. Unfortunately since a few weeks the update files are no longer actual and refreshed (last update is dated July 6). I tried to email the author, but the mails are never answered.
    Maybe somebody else uses this aplication and knows what's going on? I would hate to miss this program: it's very handy and easy to use.
    Thanks,
    Lex Kamphuis

    An alternative is CurrencyX from http://www.thinkingbytes.com

    It is not free but only $8.00 The other drawback is that you need to download the pdb with currencies before HotSync, but I can live with that.

    Go back to the site. They've been having server problems.

    They are still having problems. No update since July 5th or July 10 (depending on where you look) Too bad as it was a very convenient program.

    Hi,

    I'm aware of the server problems at nbci. However sending emails to Mr. Martins doesn't work, because he cannot reply to them. Nevertheless I sent him a message asking for a more clearer statement on the homepage, but so far I didn't see any changes.
    I don't understand why he's not switching to another server, because this will kill his application I think....

    I also tried Thinkingbyte's CurrencyX. However they apparently have a problem with the script that generates the rate update file. At my request their support dpt. issued a bug report to Thinkingbytes about this.

    Hope one of them is coming back to life soon, at least before the Euro is introduced over here..;=)
