New Salstat website

What countries really like coming to the United Kingdom?
This is about UK visas in general rather than settlement in particular, but I thought it might be interesting to see who really likes to come to the UK. We took Home Office statistics for the number of visa applications by country made in 2013 and compared ...

Salstat running again on Linux
I have a spare machine running Linux Mint but I couldn't get Salstat running on it. The problem was the wxPython library in the repository was limited to version 2.8 which was too old to run the new html2 widget that could run JQuery, Bootstrap and HighChar...

2+ test condition dialog
After a little bit of coding, the 2+ test condition dialogs have been written! I've included screenshots below with the wireframes to allow a comparison with the real thing that's now working. The code is not yet uploaded to GitHub but needs to be connected...

Successful applicants for UK visas are often informed that they cannot get public funds . It is important to know what qualifies as public funds and what does not: Using public funds when disallowed might lead to penalties when applying for other things in ...
