What's New - October 2010
October 5, 2010: Over 3 years since the last fix to our popular "CutList" program. CutList Version 3.4.2 corrects a problem which could occur if the user tried to load a "txtHI" file, (user manually created solution) without loading the original base case file first. The situation was not diagnosed and the loading errors got ugly. I believe it's diagnosed better now, but I haven't done a lot of testing on the fix so, as usual, let me know if you find problems (old or new).
October 14, 2010: Spellbound, a word search helper was added to our Wordstuff program wrapper today. Spellbound searches a set of letters to find all embedded words. It can also generate random scrambled 7 letter word sets as practice material. I wrote Spellbound to help improve my scores when playing this online game of the same name . (And because implementing search strategies is one of my favorite hobbies.)
October 26, 2010: I've been busy getting ready for winter and deer hunting season for the past week or so, but did find time on the rainy days to have some fun with fuel level calculations based on it's depth in our 275 gallon tank. The Fuel Tank Capacity program posted today emulates the charts that are available online for several standard sized and shaped fuel tanks. There are a few anomalies in the online charts but either source confirms that the 13" of diesel fuel in my tank translates to 70 gallons, hopefully enough to see the tractor through its snow plowing duties this winter.
