I've created a really simple Tradehill ticker in vb net. It just sits on your desktop and fetches the current price, ask and bid. Takes up a small amount of screen real estate. I have only tested it on 3 machines, I hope it works out for you guys. Please let me know of any problems you are having, or any improvements you would like.

Why does this feel like a bad idea to download?

I did a quick analysis of the source code, it's very very simple code and looks harmless, however Newtonsoft.Json.dll could be rigged. (I don't have time to do a file integrity comparison of this version against the official downloadable version).

Why would anyone use a bloated external library to parse such simple json responses anyhow? A typical VB.NET programmer thing to do Smiley but then again I use VB.NET too.

I started of with something similar for the mtgox api, and I ended up with a semi-automated buyer/seller bot.

Hmm, maybe I wasn't clear enough. His source code = OK, using an external library (dll) for a dead simple JSON parsing = NOT OK.
So my conclusion in clear writing? don't use it

I hope I was clear enough.

I promise its not a virus, but I certainly understand everyone's trepidation. I would be in the exact same boat Smiley

I'm pretty new to VB.net so a push in a better direction than newtonsoft would be nice.
