2.0 is the next major step for Toucan. As well as including a number of much requested features it also includes a complete interface rewrite. There is one main reason that I decided a rewrite was necessary, and that was because Toucan was becoming interface limited. For example translations are fairly difficult in 1.2 because it is a fixed size interface, this has also made it very difficult to add new features, short of changing the sizes of the entire dialogue and all of its components every time I need to add a new one.

Right then, as I am now properly host here on I thought that I would clear the blog out and start afresh.

Google Spreadsheets

In this post, I will discuss Google's new product, an online spreadsheet.

Google Spreadsheets appears to be the ultimate in stand-alone portable spreadsheets. It is still in development (it is listed in the Labs section of Google's site), but it is quite stable and works well on each machine I have tested it on (including a Linux one). You can upload spreadsheets in .xls and .csv formats and edit them easily . These stay on your Google Account storage after you open them, so once uploaded from one computer, you can access them from any computer when you log into your account. Once done editing, you can save it to your Google account and then download it to a location of your choice as .xls or .csv. It preserves all formulas and works well with them. It is miles ahead of the other fonline spreadsheet, AjaxSpread. I would reccommend use of this to anyone.
