    I'm just curious, how would you add a distance/time gadget to this addon? I looked through the code but i have no clue what to do. I found the variable nearestSite.distance, which i guess is the one that calls out how far away the dig site is in yards. But i don't get much further than that, in WoW i have a script that checks the current speed of the player. Combining those two would give an estimated time to reach the dig site. I really wish Arch had an estimated time showing up, since most of the time you're flying and you wonder if you have enough time to grab something to eat without pulling out the calculator.

    Sometimes Archy lets the Char stuck in motion when landed, used doubleclick to dig and got, at the same time, attacked by a nearby npc. The Char doesn't move anymore and every click just causes to dig again.

    As a Shammy easy to solve by activating the Lightning Shield .. if the npc dies you can go ahead properly with archy.

    Just to let you know

    I experienced an issue with trying to solve the NE statue set. It allows for up to three scrolls, but I only needed two to complete it. I had exactly two, but could not solve. Archy allowed me to add the scrolls, but the solve button did nothing. The default interface allowed me to add them as well, but clicking solve just removed a scroll. I had to log-out to disable Archy, login to solve the artifact, then log-out/in to re-enable Archy.

    It would even be nice if I could just load/unload on demand via Addon Control Panel...

    I do not get any errors or crashing when I use Archy but I do have one problem. I cannot use the fragments to complete items. I add them in but when I click solve, nothing happens. If I turn off archy I can use the fragments to complete the item. It is a pain to keep reloading archy when I want to use the fragments but Archy is so good, I cannot go without it. Anyone else having this issue? Since I am not getting any errors or crashing, I cannot post anything to help.
