            Changing news source / comments
            Right click on the text area, then pick the "News Feed"

            A few things I'd like to change:
            1. I'd like to be able to select multiple news sources
            and cycle thru them.
            2. I'd like to disable the little dialog box that comes
            up when it gets new data.
            3. It should probably also let you tell it how often to
            get new data, it's doing a lot of downloads now.
            4. It should let you specify how fast it scrolls.

            Time to get my hands dirty...

            how do you choose a different news source?
            So, does anyone know how to convince kticker to display any news source besides the BBC?
