Thanks for the contributions! This app has been quite neglected for
awhile now as we focus our energies on other projects. Just goes to show
that any software project, no how simple or small, needs continuous love
and care.

As FOSS project we shouldn't have to say this, but we love contributions
from the community :D Looks like n8fr8 is managing your pull request on
git. Hopefully we can get that compatibility issue sorted out.

If you're willing to take it further, by all means!
