Tim, I would love to help you add exception handling to this web part

this really is a wonderful web part, and has saved countless people a lot of development time.  However, there are clearly some parts in your code that should be in a try/catch that aren't.  This is bad because people can't reliably put this on their sharepoint sites, since if it crashes it will break the entire page until it is disabled.

please add proper exception handling to allow it to fail gracefully, or let me help!

jeffreyg -- would love to have contributed patches to make the web part much better.  Only one other person has ever contributed to this project (and in a significant way), so any help is appreciated.  My focus lately has been elsewhere so this project falls last in priorities as a result.  If you find fixes/enhancements you can make, PLEASE DO!

Jeffreyg - did you find a fix for this web part? this web part crashes the site if there is an error.  Any help would be really appreciated.
