request for updated plugin

Is it possible to make the updated URL checking plugin available to everyone? I am getting "awasuMonitorURLs.py error: Can't update the feed." each time, even though all the URLs are good I think. In other words, I can open them in a browser.

Thanks

Tried fixing the menus. Context menus fixed, as you suggested. I could not fix the Edit menu, the items won't move. I also enlarged my icons, and would like to suggest that a separate bitmap would be nicer... the larger icons are jaggier smaller icons. In other words, a separate set of bitmaps to be...

Thanks -- I will try that. But I shouldn't have to. My mouse is already near the bottom of the screen when I am looking for Properties, it is kind of a reflex action, and many people do the same if one watches. My eyes also are looking at the bottom of the context menu. So sure, I could fix it, but ...

Rationalize right-click menu

In adding or modifying channels, it's a bit frustrating that Awasu has a different order from most other programs. This impacts usability. For example, one expects to find Properties at the bottom, and New up at the top. Suggest reviewing these menus and other usability factors for a future release....

Why is it I prefer to read even Awasu's rss feeds in FeedReader? Because when I ask for an open window, FeedReader opens my default browser, Opera. There are lots of good reasons not to use IE, and also lots of good reasons I like to use Opera. In this virii infested world we live in, I understand t...

No BoingBoing at startup, but it updates manually

As long as I am here, might as well report another.

When Awasu starts, I get Konnichiwa and then an XML token error balloon on BoingBoing. But if I open Awasu and manually update the channel, it updates just fine.

Can't find a job (feed, that is)

Ok, I'm supposed to be able to use Awasu to find a job. What could be better than that? Cool. Except that when I paste the RSS feed, which is pretty long, into Awasu, Awasu disappears. Now, I hate looking for a job too, but computers aren't supposed to express themselves this way. http://weblog.rand...

... and it didn't work for me anyway. Got my Google API key, put it in the plugin, but the best I can get is "XML parse failed (7:L3/C2): mismatched tag" when I enter my query.

After deletion, highlighted channel is wrong

After I delete a channel, the highlight goes to the next channel. But that's not what is in the upper or lower panes. Highlight probably should jump back to what is being displayed.

Picky, aren't I?

Delay or wait when starting with Windows?

Recently I have tried having Awasu start with Windows, and a few times Awasu has come up with a "can't update the feed" error. When I maximize Awasu and update it myself, the same feed updates without error. What I think is happening is that there is a race between Zone Alarm getting started and Awa...
