It is functioning like a charm - then it was so on my Pandora's box but your game consumes
a lot less resources... and it is also
portable ... as soon as the newer 1.2.8. View is ported to other machines and OSes...

this is not too annoying ... since I don't click too quickly!

That was the longest to download but so what for seeing such a great app. running ...
