    1) Main site RSS download link is dead
    2) How do you install this? I can not get it to work with my Vista version :(
    Other gadget are working fine.

    Okay. I got it installed, but it does not look like it's updating!
    When I restart the gadget (or PC) it will update.

    Anything I can do to make it auto update ever X minute?
