Converter Deskbar

Another thing for Gnome Deskbar: a converter that converts one unit to another. Enter “23m in feet” and immediately get the answer that that distance is 75.46ft. Inspired by Google Calculator’s similar behaviour, you can download the program and drop it into your ~/.gnome2/deskbar-applet/handlers folder. You’ll need to have GNU Units installed as well (install the “units” package in Ubuntu).

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
