I am not doing anything with it right now anyway.  I can't get it to work on 
the blog.  The layers are all messed up and I don't really have time to mess 
with it.

I wouldn't say I am "editing it to my whim," but after some thought I do 
agree an email to him wouldn't hurt - if I even decide I want to put it on 
my blog.

That is called "stealing" another's work.

SEND N2YO AN EMAIL - and ask him for what you would like. What is wrong with 
doing that?

I had sent him a small donation earlier this year. And he created a CUSTOM 
WIDGET for me - just
listing my favorite five satellites.

He is approachable. He answers polite email messages. He is a ham. He SHOULD 
be considered a
valuable resource/reference person for us ... and NOT someone whose code 
should be snagged and
edited to our whims.

UNLESS, of course, he plainly states that his works are free to the world, 
for us to edit however we
want with them. But last time I looked, that was not the case.
