The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 6 days for that many people to see it.

command-line currency converter

November 19, 2014 Leave a comment

Qalculate! is a multi-purpose desktop calculator for GNU/Linux (now ported to Mac). It is small and simple to use but with much power and versatility underneath. Features include customizable functions, units, arbitrary precision, plotting, and a user-friendly interface (KDE or GTK+).” (source)

The software has a command-line interface too that you can start with the command “qalc“. You can do all kinds of fancy math calculations with it, but this time I’m interested in currency conversions. Qalc supports it too:

$ qalc
You need the download exchange rates to be able to convert between different currencies.
You can later get current exchange rates with the "exchange rates" command.
Do you want to fetch exchange rates now from the Internet (default yes)? yes
> 50000 USD to HUF

  50000 * dollar = approx. HUF 12157958

>  USD to HUF

  dollar = approx. HUF 243.15915
