Looking nice  :Thmbsup: ...

Power Meter Plus was just featured on lifehacker and the initial feedback is positive... maybe you want to draw attention to your little gadget?

NinJA999:
Thanks, glad you like it.  It was programmed in just a couple of days, because I was way too busy.  I feel like it's not up to the caliber of the other entries, but I use it myself, just in a corner of the screen on small.

I'm not sure mine can even stand up to the one featured on Lifehacker; that said, mine can fit into a smaller space (on the small setting)...

mouser:
i love the look of it.

NinJA999:
Thanks!

It looks worse in the picture because of the compression--the circle is actually pretty smooth.
