Guess this happened a while ago but I'm just noticing now. Spezi|Fanta posted in July that he's too busy to continue working on SteamCalculator.com and as a result has made the Perl scripts used to power his site available to use on Github.

It doesn't look like anyone has taken up his work where he left off though. Taking a quick test-drive at his current version it looks as though packages still are not implemented on his calculator (something the DDGamer version has). It's too bad he's no longer able to work on it, we had a short collaboration and I learned a lot about writing in php. I ended up re-writing all of my own calculator scripts as a result of the work I did with him.

steam calculator,

Alex at SteamCalculator.com has launched a new beta of his calculator app. Packages aren't currently supported as of this time, but it looks pretty slick. I'm not sure what's different from the older version at first glance, but the colours are nicer; I like that blue background.

I imagine there are a lot of behind the scenes optimizations, it's probably all been coded in perl.

What do you guys think?

This is all well and good, but why has no media asked
the question: "What about the fans that diligently
went out and bought each X-game when they were
released?" I am one of them, as why shouldn't I ...

I was in the beta. Everything felt off and
non-responsive. Though I have not checked them out
since they've released, since even if it got rid of
the lag it would still be a lot uglier than a locally

Updated the original post with that video. I dunno, I
think it was in poor taste personally. But if you
don't have any money for advertise I guess you do what
you need to do.

Guess it's just a publicity stunt after-all. Pretty
lame though.

I'd be surprised to see it get a client, unless that
client is optional. One of the selling points of GOG
that they kept going on about was that you didn't need
a client. I'd be even more surprise...
