Tour ticker available for Mac OSX users

Got a Mac? Use Panther? Want up-to-the-minute newsflashes from the Tour de France but don't want the hassle of keeping www.letour.fr open and refreshed? Here's the answer...

This opens a program called LiveTour 2004 and, says its Spanish author, "snags the code from http://www.lerour.com/2004/us/live.html"

What you get is a ticker bar that can be made transparent behind the work on your desktop. When new data is loaded to the official coverage on Letour.fr, it rolls across the ticker bar.

However, if Letour.fr changed its coding, LiveTour 2004 - a freeware quick-app - would cease to work.
