Handy app. be nice to see how this comes along...
One question though, why does it chew 20% of cpu time when its not doing anything?

Never noticed that. Scripting language, I guess. It's running on a loop that checks if the mouse hits the pixels at the very corners constantly, so that's probably it.

Thank you, sir (Dennis if you prefer ).

I've been slowly convincing my parents to let me set up a PayPal account and link it to their bank account for some extra cash, but they're apprehensive... as I could understand. 14 year old kid with access to thousands of dollars... not good.

Have them set you up a separate account in their name and yours. Put a couple of hundred dollars in it and link the PayPal account to that one. The complies with all the legalities and does not touch their main account.

My parents are also very apprehensive of letting me have my own bank account (more lazy than anything, in my opinion) and I don't have any money at all...

Maybe you can sell them on the idea as means of you earning some money?
