The site that I was grabbing currency information from stopped working, so I changed the script to grab exchange rates from Yahoo! every hour. This also had the knock on effect of making it a lot faster, as it now doesn’t grab the rates every time. The improvements have also been folded back into the CD-WOW price checker.

I shamelessly butchered some other people’s code and glued it back together to make a super minimalist currency converter. It also has a field for putting in a discount percentage – handy when you’re trying to work out voucher discounts. Loading in a sidebar is recommended for ease of use while consumer whoring.
