BookDepository.co.uk support for Piranhas

So many stores!

Piranhas now has bookdepository .co.uk support!

Why?

Piranhas already had support for bookdepository .com, but I recently learned that the .com and .co.uk Book Depository sites actually have slightly different pricing (despite looking almost identical and sharing the same user accounts).

This is of course in addition to the existing support for Amazon.com/ .ca/ .co.uk/ .de/ .fr (and now the two Book Depositories).

What was this Piranhas thing again?

Piranhas searches through five Amazon country-specific stores and the Book Depository to find the cheapest source for your books. It does all the necessary currency conversions and shipping calculations, so you don’t have to.

Chrome Extension: Always Five for Reittiopas.fi

Always five

Tired of having Reittiopas (the Helsinki public transportation route planner) only show you three route suggestions by default? This extension makes sure that five suggestions (the maximum possible) are always shown.

You can install it from the Chrome Web Store.

The source code is available on GitHub: matiaskorhonen/always-five
