DO NOT USE THIS WIDGET/REFRESH FREQUENTLY
This widget does not check the server often--it does it, as far as I can estimate, once every 24 hours--but not timed to when new ZOTs are added.
Which I just discovered. I'm finding out about ZOTs right before they end, instead of right after they start.
This developer no longer exists (as fas as I can tell), much the pity--I really wanted to keep using notepad, and so don't expect any updates to fix this or any other problems.
This widget, like any other, can be refreshed--⌘R
If you do this frequently, that takes care of the problem
