Most of the unfinished calculators and data pages have been uploaded, however I am at the limit of the space allotted to me by my ISP, so there are a few new files that will have to wait until I can free up some space. I had planned to leave the Javascript code uncompressed, so it would be easy to understand for others wishing to see how the scripts work, but, compressing these scripts will allow more content to be made available. The G.I.F.T. Sourcerer will decompress and re-format the scripts, but it will not be released until later this year. Until then users wishing to view the scripts will have to use another editor to re-format (decompress) the scripts. PS Pad is a great freeware editor that will reformat and compress HTML / Javascript code. http://www.pspad.com/index_en.html

Some of the data pages containing related data have been merged, so if you have created a bookmark to a page that is no longer available, use the "Site Search" to find the new location of the data.

Global Site Update:

Another major revision of the site with a considerable increase in the Data section. There are too many changes to list individually but the paragraphs below provide an rough outline.

  • Modified:
    • Colour of all page backgrounds have been changed to white, to reduce ink usage when pages are printed on colour printers.
    • Styles of top navigation tables changed to simulate 2 tabbed folders.
    • Nearly all formatting is contained within style sheets and class names have been shortened to reduce overall download time.
    • All unit converters have been converted to external Javascript files so they can be referenced from within other data pages.
    • Unit conversion pages have been reduced to 2 pages. (Linear formula [eg length, area], Non linear formula [eg temperature]).
    • HTML Data pages containing lists of properties have been renamed to "Interactive data" and incorporate unit converters and property lists within the same page.
  • Additions:
    • Cookie Clipboard (stores data from calculator / conversion / data pages).
    • New Data categories, Lists (related lists of data in a "tree" type structure), and Interactive (calculators which include selectable data from external files, and pages which use a graphic interface to display information).
    • Site Search Engine has been enhanced with twice as many keywords per page.
    • Framed / Non Framed interface.
  • Removals:
    • All medical software (and specific medical data) has been removed to provide more space for general HTML data and calculators.
  • Combined:
    • Many HTML Data pages containing related information have been combined to reduce their size.
  • Uploaded:
    • The entire site.
