Calcatraz Newsletter – June 2012
In This Issue
- Calcatraz update
- New feature: Calculation notes
- Out and about: The Edinburgh half-marathon
I’ve been busy working on improvements to the calculator’s accuracy rate, adding support for a much broader range of calculations. I’m hoping to push out the first wave of improvements out in the next couple of months.
I’m also experimenting with this new monthly newsletter. The idea is to share anything cool I come across during the month, and to provide a quick update of happenings here at Calcatraz. I’m going to start off small, and if it goes well I’ll make it a regular thing.
New Feature: Calculation Notes
This month saw a handy little feature added to the calculator‘s history list: the ability to annotate individual history entries. You can add a note to any calculation in the history list. You can use this to record the meaning of important answers, for example, making it easier to understand your history. To add a note, simply highlight the calculation history row you want to add a note to and press the ‘edit’ icon (looks like a pencil).
Out and about: The Edinburgh Half-Marathon
This month I took a quick trip home to the mother-land. While there I ran the Edinburgh half-marathon, one of the quickest half-marathons going thanks to the descent from the city centre down to the waterfront (not that that was reflected in my time, thanks to jetlag and a lack of training!). I had a great time though, catching up with my brother and basking in the unexpectedly good weather. Congratulations to everyone who completed the event – I hope you are enjoying that medal.
