I'm Simon Haynes.
Welcome to
Spacejock Software

On this site you'll find my free software including favourites like yWriter, yBook, FCharts and more.

Are you looking for a freelance programmer? I occasionally take on additional projects, conversions, etc.

I'm also an author, with five sf comedy novels in print (details, Kindle) and a junior science fiction series for ages 8+ (details, Kindle).

I think they call that multitasking. I call it a lot of work.


Why Free?

QuoteMonster Not a data source, but a script which will download historical or EOD data for US stocks (or other countries).

In order to set up a tickers file, use the Export All Codes button on the FCharts Settings screen (on the Import/Export tab). After renaming this file to tickers.txt you can use it as the source file for Quotemonster.

I can't give detailed instructions on using QuoteMonster - it involves setting up Perl and running commands from a Dos prompt. It includes a readme file explaining the usage.

Also on this site, you'll find a zip file containing a list of all AMEX, NASDAQ, NYSE, and OTCBB stocks.
