#GamertagShampoo v 0.8 #
#Written By: Colby Butler #
#################################################

#################################################
#2/18/08 #
#Changes for 0.8: #
#-Apparently, the HTML changed for the GamerTag #
# Data. I've fixed it for now. #
#################################################

Changes for 0.7:
-Reputation stars fixed by kaasachtig (Thanks!)

Changes for 0.6:

-Reworked the way that the icons are displayed. The Icons are now stored locally.
-Changed the update interval to ten minutes
#################################################
#################################################
This is a SuperKaramba Widget that displays a given Xbox Live GamerTag

############
How To Use:#
############
-Extract the archive file somewhere "permanent"
-Open GamertagShampoo.py and replace:

MyGamerTag = "Major Nelson"

with:

MyGamerTag = ""

Then, right-click on GamertagShampoo.theme and run with Superkaramba

######
Notes#
######
-Two firsts at once! This is my first exposure to both Python and SuperKaramba.

-This widget will process gamertags containing spaces, but probably not any other characters.

-Requires active interet connection

-Updates every 3 minutes (180000 ms)

##############
Known issues:#
##############
-Upon initialization, the gamer picture and recently played game icons don't redraw until you either
right-click and update the widget, or grab the widget and move it. I'm still working on that (Resolved in 0.6)

-The associated reputation (yellow starts) rating isn't working yet. I couldn't find it in the HTML from Microsoft.

-The tooltips for the images aren't completely reliable yet.


#################
Future Features:#
#################
-Modify Gamertag via right-click menu
-Clicking the items will open the appropriate pages on xbox.com

kaasachtig was able to fix the reputation star issue. Now the appropriate number of stars should be shown corresponding to your reputation.

I've updated the docs and incremented the version number. Thanks kaasachtig!!!
