You can find contact info at avlis.blackdagger.com also, you can ask
any questions you need on the forums.  Sounds like your gunshy about
posting in our forums, well you could simply send email via the
contacts page.

The "wrapper" doesn't actually poll the memory space to get the
data, my understanding is that there is a system callback.  You're
best bet is to ask Ingmar (developer) about those details.
