Gödel's Market on Github

There are some snippets of useful code on this blog that could transform into even more useful code if placed in a more conducive environment. I've created a Github account for blog related code here:

Right now I've only had the time to put up a repository for the IB Historical Data Downloader. I had to clean up the code formatting a little bit and transfer over the article's content to a readme to make things a bit clearer.

I'd really like to get all the code from the site transferred over. Then I would like to make it more user-friendly so that individuals who do not have as much experience with programming can get their feet wet. That's the goal :)

If you have any questions on how to make a piece of code do something more interesting than it does, please ask. These are basic starting points. I love to help, but I'd rather not just give all the answers right up front. For one, it's no fun that way (check out Project Euler and tell me, with a straight face, that it would be fun to have the answers given to you...). Second, you'll learn far more trying to develop your own program, which will give you more confidence to create more complicated things. Third, if you want it all done for you, I'm available for hire. :)

Now, back to the data.
