Hi,
I've installed this plasmoid but it has some problems:

-it says it can't parse a json string on line 81 of main.js

-it only display the bitcoin value from mt. gox (the other is missing)

-the icons are not vertically aligned with the text

Here's a screenshot:

Thanks for your work

works OK since Nov 18th, 2013. bitstamp fixed their API.

Ok now it works.

A suggest: If you use IconWidget instead of toolbuttons the icon will be displayed correctly (aligned and auto rescaled).

Go directly to:
https://www.bitstamp.net/api/

in your browser and let me know, if you get the access denied.

Hello,

Bitstamp API randomly blocks the access, although in their documentation they say you should be able to pull their data 600 times per 10 minutes.

Plasmoid only pulls it 10 times in 10 minutes by default.

I am now sure what is causing this as sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have contacted Bitstamp, but no response so far.

Plasmoid is created in Javascript and I am not sure how to align icons with the text (I use it on desktop instead of panel and my panel is shorter, so it looked OK), but I'll check this in v0.3
