It doesn't do anything!

If I want to know what a pound is worth against the dollar I would expect a widget like this to tell me by checking on the web. Not expecting me to know the conversion rate.

can you update to save multiple custom rates? I find this very useful for converting film footage and frames to time (which I usually do in 3 or 4 steps with a calculator). If you add support for multiple custom rates, it would save some extra time.

film second/frame = 24
film minute/frame = 1440
film foot/frame = 16
NTSC video second/frame =30
NTSC video minute/frame = 1800

An excellent widget but (and this is a big but), it eats up my resources even when dashboard is not active. I get a constant 8~12% Cpu usage of this, just by sitting in my dashboard! I think TOSSEN should do something with the javascript, to not eat up cpu cycles when idle. Other than that excellent for using custom value rates.
