Hi!

This is a very nice idea, but I am having a problem: double-clicking the tray icon pops up the first quote, but when I click on OK, the next quote pops up, and the next, and the next.

I don't think this was the idea? I have to exit the program to stop.

Am I missing something?

Thank you,

Sandro

thats really odd - doesnt seem to happen here..

the first quote it shows is when you double click the tray icon, and then
you're clicking OK in the message box and as soon as you do it shows another quote?

i know that if you click repeatedly on the icon it will show a bunch of overlapping quotes, but shouldnt do that if you click OK.
i really should just replace this messagebox with a proper dialog to make it easier to see more - i will do this on the next coding snack day,
so the bug will get fixed then for sure, but it's still very strange behavior..

Exactly. It IS weird. More so since it seems to happen only in my computer. I am running WinXP Pro SP1 and I DO install and uninstall lots of software, so I guess I don't have a very "clean machine" :)

Anyway, I'll wait for the next version, thank you.
