How it works:

EVETicker is essentially a web browser designed to read modified html files. Periodically it contacts it's home website, downloads the html files and displays them in a scrolling ticker. The html files are generated by server-side software which periodically contacts specific websites, downloads data and transforms it into EVETicker readable html. Like all of the EVE related programs I've written over the years, it is not open source. However, it's completely free to use.

NOTE: This is a very early beta. Expect bugs, crashes, etc.

Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
