Hi Christopher,

it's fixed for me too! I really appreciate your support. You wrote that 
you'll fix it in couple of days, not in a few hours :) Especially that you 
have done it on New Year's Eve. You have my respect. Thank you! You really 
improved a quality of y life :) (this issue was very annoying for me).

Could you briefly describe what was the nature of that limitation and how did 
you fixed it, please? (technically, I'm a developer too)

Thank you and have happy and successful year 2014!
