So, I was irritated that the only bitcoin widget was 0.15 BTC, which I think is too expensive for such a trivial function.
So I attempted to make one, but couldn't get it to refresh. I searched for a general image display, and I found Image Loader:

I use the free ticker from:

Add 8 more pixels to the dimensions, and refresh every 10 minutes:


And voilà! A free ticker that updates every 10 minutes. Cheesy

Is there something wrong with this gadget? I can install it, and I can get the settings, but it wont display the image, it just says loading, and never brings up the image. Are there any other free options out there?
