Re: error 217
We will have to kick around that idea.
I am torn right now between a total re-write in to C# or perhaps leave
it in it's current state then add a more sophisticated user interface
Although the communications code could easily be moved to a dll,
perhaps there is an advantage of keeping it as a separate process.
Right now, the currdat.lst file output by WUHU could be monitored as
input for a nice gauge or chart program. Ideally the same charts or
gauges would then be available over the net.
If you want to kick around some ideas offline you can email me at
