Sexiest timeline addon on earth

Thanks for creating this...
As the title says: i think this is the sexiest and best working timeline addon for 3ds Max till now
i would have two requests:

1) Make the height of the addon adjustable - vertical screenspace is precious
2) When the height gets two small (because of 1 ), switch the start/endframe display to tooltips during adjusting, i think the info is not that essential to be displayed all the time, just during atime adjustemnts.
To be able to adjust start/endframe without spinners, you might place some small, graphical UI elements ion both ends, where the spinners sit now.
And when the user click/drags those elements, the tooltip opens and updates during dragging...

thanks again for that great little thingy !
