Nor sure why, but I'm experiencing all kinds of problems with it: It won't go to work after I change prefs and restart it, it doesn't update after the first run of 5 articles, I can't get it back after I click the 'close window' button, the window sits there overlapping other stuff and can't be moved...

It's a nice idea and I would have liked to use it, but it just doesn't behave the way it should...!? :-( (PoweBook G4 with 10.4.7 German)

As a frequent user of digg.com, I tried this app/menu out. The interface is nice, but it would be very nice to be able to "digg" articles within the menu, without having to open a browser.

Also, if you enter in a Digg username, the menu ceases to work, and you must remove your username from the preference file.

I like this menu extra alot. it would be slick if a version of this application existed that you could just enter any rss feed you want, and have it work the same way, I have seen other apps try this, but non were as slick as DiggUpdate, if only redid it as a general rss menu.

as for what it is, if you read digg frequently, I would recommend checking out DiggUpdate.
