Hi! Firstly, great skin. Highly useful and compact. I just can't see how to set up the gmail notification. It's probably staring me right in the face, but any help would be great.

All you have to do is click the little gear icon on the left, And wait for the config panel to load. Then inside there, Look for UName and UPass. Enter your gmail username without the @gmail.com under UName and click set. do the same for UPass, and everything should work. If your webparser has gotten stuck and doesnt load anything, You can simply exit Rainmeter and restart. Everything should work from there!

I havent had a chance to making a bottom-bar version. Currently it is only for the top of the screen. One day I might get around to making a bottom-bar variant. Sorry I cant help this moment. :(
