Markham, I discovered your program about 6 weeks ago, and at that time things were very wirey. I'd have it running for 5-10 mins, and it would crash, never to return. I'm not a launcher user, but even then Circle Dock was a bunch of fun.
Now with Beta1 the last two weeks or so, I have it working on my #2 computer. It only crashed once, yesterday, and I restarted it, and it was blank. So I put back on some of my original shortcuts, and reshaped it, etc. Next time I restarted the comp, the first set of settings were back, but the second set were gone. I'm having fun with the notion I'm on a pre-release that will someday be very famous, so the setbacks are understood. I'd love to see a feature to export the settings.
How famous you ask?
Your program will be the impetus to force manufacturers to create a U shape backlight and eventually the circular LCD monitor. That, or with my first paycheck I'm going looking in antique shops for the famous 50's TV set made with the round screen, and a RF Modulator.
Kidding aside, I thank you for the hard work you put in.
I've got a rhetorical question about your username too: I live in New England (a group of states in the northeast USA), and a lot of towns I grew up in, and around, ended with 'ham.' Any connection to this area or England? Just curious. Or is it a real first name. I'm always trying to pick up on different cultures.
I hope you either don't need credits and donations at all, or are getting them generously.
