    The upgrade of this plugin is a disaster. I liked the plugin, it was useful, but once it finds an upgrade it sends up a balloon message saying "it's time to upgrade!". Problem is, if you press the balloon but don't upgrade (thinking, perhaps I don't have time right now, but it is quite annoying so I'll remove the balloon for now) it comes back after 2 seconds, and keeps coming back until you upgrade.

    I finally uninstalled the plugin due to this, I can't take the balloon-attacks. Please fix this!
