Hope For Traders Using Linux?

I was recently browsing the Geeks Toy forum and came across a thread posted by someone who has managed to get The Toy working on Linux.

I gave it a quick go yesterday and although it installed OK, I kept getting an error when trying to log on. As I do not scalp the markets these days and arguably have no need for such software, I haven't bothered to investigate the reason. I suspect it may be something to do with the version of Wine I am running - the latest stable release, version 1.2.3. The original poster is using version 1.3.28 which is a development version.

I have other applications running that I do not want to risk breaking by installing a development version of Wine, so any future attempt will have to wait.

Anyway, I thought I'd bring it to your attention, if you haven't seen it already.

About Bloody Time!

Happy New Year to one and all!

It's been a while since I felt the urge to put fingers to keyboard. Apparently, I've been very busy flipping burgers. Not sure in which Quantum universe that's been happening. Here in this universe I've been very busy developing systems that could be automated. It's a never ending process as ideas pop up quicker than I can code them.

Over the years I've done lots of database applications using MS Access and programming/scripting in a variety of different languages. I haven't done much for a while, simply because I'm not a very efficient coder and I find the whole process pretty tedious. However, creating some bots has given the impetus to learn MySQL and PHP programming.
