    Well, I was just sitting down to update the script ... and lo and behold, it is working again. I guess some problems do solve themselves if you ignore them too long ! I guess the Yahoo! Finance page reverted to their previous page layout now, so all's well.

    Script currently broken
    Yahoo! Finance changed their web site and as a result this script does not parse the currency rate properly, instead it always returns a ratio of 1:1 for all currencies. I have been very busy with an intercontinental move the past months, but should be able to update it soon, as well as resume hosting the files on my own computer again. Apologies to anyone that might have tried it and not had it work for them.
