yea I figured that out. Right now I am trying to get the grab ticker "command" to repeat once a minute. Revalin's code didn't work for me. Then figure out how to only display the last price from the ticker.

Do you know why R crashes if I don't include useragent= "R"?

*well I should say I don't really get the make.dataframe part yet

Yea that is interesting about it crashing.  There is a short thing about it on the RCurl FAQ.

You need to set up a cron.  I don't know how to do that in Windows.  But in unix-like system it is easy.  First you need to make an Rscript.  This is just a file saying what you want R to do in a .R format.  It would be cool to have it make a tweet with the current ticker.  There is the twitteR package.  I was playing around with this before.

Also, you could try just have R run in a loop.  Have R run the ticker function, print out the data, then have it wait x seconds and do it again.

I think adding a tweet or email using a cron job is better.  Let me know if you need help with the cron setup.

to do the last price:

Code:
     x <- MT.BTCUSD()
      x$last
      [1] 4.4639
