What's New - March, 2014

Our Oil Tank
Capacity Chart program displays a chart of remaining gallons for various
liquid depths for a number of standard fuel oil tanks. I recently added
Version 2.1 to include a couple of new sizes at a user's request. Version
2.2. posted today, ,allows users to edit, add, or delete definitions and to
print generated charts. Fractional inch dimensions are now allowed so my
tank chart now matches the nominal capacity within a gallon for all depths!
Here is yesterday's Mensa Calendar puzzle which prompted today's program. My
language-oriented, crossword-addicted, wife solved it in less than 10 minutes. I
got two of the three words in the line 2 puzzle in 10 minutes; then decided it
was programming time!
Just in case, the program and the dictionary are both included in the
executable zip file download.

A viewer was having trouble getting the program to work on his system,
receiving invalid data format errors. I could duplicate the error when
"Dual Channel" input was specified when only monaural input was available.
The problem persisted because the single/dual channel option was save and
restored across multiple runs. Oscilloscope
4.2.3 posted today is a temporary fix which resets the input format to
monaural when the program is started. I'll work on a better fix next
