Wet has updated his calculator to do it. He also said:

"I am using 10.7ppm CO3 per 1 dKH. This is derived from the 17.9ppm CaCO3 per 1 dKH more commonly circulated. When you reply to that thread, they may be confused by that, and if so, you may want to refer them to the discussion on the subject here (just the most recent thread I remember where we talked about it): http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...cker-part.html"
