I love this deal because I can just hone in on the category I normally search, mainly computers and tech.

There should be a way to search on whether the post has a picture or not, and when I do a keyword search, it hangs on my Mac and doesn't do anything until I kill the search.

Also, when you start your Mac screen saver (in my case, the RSS feed) the widget freezes unless you exit it and come back.

I really like this widget but can't leave it running as left to its own devices takes between 35-57% of my CPU cycles. Anyone else having this problem?

Works great. I second it'd be great to have an icon/indicator for listings with pics.

Sounds like just what I need... but it just keeps spinning "downloading data" and NetStat doesn't show a connection to craigslist site. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Great little widget.
Ditto on the memory leak and weird name (Different District) showing in Activity Monitor. Menu Meters gave me the first clue something was wrong.

It'd be nice to have a little icon to flag the posts having pictures.

Sweet widget. Sleek look, efficient space usage, clickable hyperlinks, remembers last settings. But...

- I can only select a particular topic, or all topics within a particular grouping. I can't pick and choose among them to compile a list of what it pulls from. How possible this is to implement, I don't know.

- Memory Leakage. I found this widget (might want to rename the process to something other than Different District) using more than 100 megs of physical RAM, and who knows how much VM. Quit and reopened it, the process starts back up using only 10 megs. Definite leak somewhere.
