one of the major roadblocks to getting this out to more people is the 1,000 api calls/day limit. until google relaxes it a bit it gets jammed up even with just one person using it, haha. i’m definitely working on reworking it so it doesn’t use as many requests but pretty heads down with SRND right now.
