I know it's just new, but here's some interesting ones:

100,000.00 btc: Great!
1,000,000.00 btc: Not so great!
10,000,000.00 btc: Horrible!


Thanks, for pointing it out. I haven't checked it with great inputs. I may have to adjust the number of displayed digits depending on number.

No problem, while the figures I just used create a 'wrong' image, this actually creates a 500 internal server error:

Great job, vrotaru! It was only a matter of time before a better coder hijacked my thread. =P

But, how would you like for me to design some good background graphics for you? If you like my design, I'd happily hand it over, but I can also make whatever changes you see fit.

You know, I just have a background in server programming and I was curious to see just how hard it could be. Well, Google AppEngine is not exactly graphics friendly, so it turned out to be slightly harder that I was expecting.

And yes, yes, yes!! I'll definitively welcome your help with good background graphics and maybe currency symbols

PS. I have alsow fixed some problems with overflow and and attempt to display 1000000000000000000000000.00 btc gives

Well I since I started it... BTW, I'll be off for a day or two, so no updates. After that I'll try to make the tickers more visually appealing.

Hey, if you don't mind me asking...what exactly is the practical application of having an embeddable image of a custom currency amount?

What I mean is, if you just want to know a conversion rate, then there are nice web services for that. If you want to serve the point of this and embed the image, it isn't clear to whoever is viewing the image that you're converting, say, $100 USD into BTC, because the image doesn't specify the amount in itself. To the viewer, it's just an arbitrary number pulled from nowhere, right?

I'm not challenging the usefulness of the app, but I'm just wondering what people will be using it for, since it was requested and all.

I can think of one just off the top of my head.

Imagine a site that is taking donations in BTC but wants to display the USD value of the total donated.

eg. "Our donation goal is $1000 worth of BTC, and so far we have collected [insert image here] worth of BTC".

I added the big version to one of the desktops of my Nokia N900 with the help of the Oculo widget, now i can keep up with the prices of BTC on the go without having to manually go to a site Smiley

(I dont always get new reply notifications, pls send a pm when you think it has happened)

Wanna gimme some BTC for any or no reason? 1FmvtS66LFh6ycrXDwKRQTexGJw4UWiqDX Smiley

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!

I just created a simple ticker which shows the current price in the title of a web page, so you can see it on the tabs of the browser.

Don't expect anything fancy, feel free to download the source code from the link and adapt it to you needs.

http://bitcoin-ticker.netii.net/

If you don't want to fill any form field you can just leave them empty. Or use this link for the ticker without any configuration: http://bitcoin-ticker.netii.net/ticker.php

UPDATE: I will design a custom ticker for your website! It can be any size and include whatever information you would like. I'll even include your logo and design it however you'd like. You may pay me whatever you feel it is worth for you. Contact me if you're interested!

Thanks a lot for this ticker: http://btcticker.appspot.com/

I am already using it on my forum/classifieds page:
http://bietcoin.de

It makes it easier for people to see much Bitcoin prices are worth.

The people using this ticker may have realized that it hasn't been updating properly since MtGox went down and returned. I'm currently fixing this, so expect everything to work again in just a couple days.
