The Lonesome Electric Chicken has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

The Lonesome Electric Chicken is a time and life wasting application that spews forth a gathering of quotations. That's it. Don't look any farther into it than that.

Currently there are only about 70 quotes in the chicken pile. These are quotations that appeal to me personally, and may not jive with your own individual tastes. Some folks may enjoy them, others will most assuredly not. The Lonesome Electric Chicken is not intended to be a spiritually or morally uplifting application, although you may find it to be so anyway.

What's New

You may bawk, but this app keeps on clucking. The Lonesome Electric Chicken is still running like a headless chicken with 10.6.7 on a 2011 MacBook Pro.

Not even time itself can stop The Lonesome Electric Chicken.

-1/2 star for no other reason than I accidentally clicked that and MacUpdate kept it stuck that way.

Odd, I can't think of anything that changed in 3.1 to cause it to crash under 10.2. But I'll look into it. If anyone can send me a crash log that would be great.

Best. Readme. Ever.

Excellent software! The developer gave me more help and support for this freeware app than most companies give for programs that I pay for. The customizable aspects are awesome and if you get tired of the chicken just play with the font color and display quotes in plain ol' text.

Suggestion:

Allow the use of the "Edit->Copy" menu item so we can copy-and-paste quotes...

I set the delay to "2400 seconds". It accepted it without complaint, but silently reset the delay to 20 seconds.

Suggestion: allow longer delays for people like me who read slowly.
