Using monthly average exchange rates

Hi! I just changed the USD prices in the table using the average exchange rates from October 2009 instead of the current exchange rate. The idea of changing to monthly rates came from Christoph Pulster. I think this is a much better idea than using the current rate which can change much more. I got the monthly rates from an online tool at . Here are the rates for October. I'm planning to update these rates regularly:

Oct 2009	0.67480	0.61704	17.478	2.8447	29.436	1.0214
Nov 2009	0.67067	0.60272	17.339	2.7941	28.964	1.01277
Dec 2009	0.68580	0.61605	17.889	2.8440	30.104	1.0301
Jan 2010	0.61872	18.306	0.70080	2.8505	29.863	1.0340

I hope this is okay for other editors; feedback and suggestions are welcome! --Marko Knöbl 11:10, 21 November 2009 (UTC)

I suggest not to use and calculate exchange rates at all (they may even change by several % if your CC is charged 2 weeks later). Just use USD, EUR. And there will remain only 6 other currencies. But you should link the online-tool so that everyone can easily convert what he/she wants. -- hns 09:28, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

I konw that exchange rates can change very much. The conversions are only meant to be rough guidlines which provide an approximate price for comparison - I don't see any disadvantage of listing the USD prices - I think there is no better method of comparing these prices than converting all of them to one currency. And I think we can save other people some extra work if we list the converted prices instead of requiring them to convert them by themselves. --Marko Knöbl 14:55, 24 November 2009 (UTC) inactive
