Problem with Awesome

I tried to install and make the netwidget to work but for some reason the awesome won't display it. I am fairly sure I have written everything correctly and would enjoy if someone would bother to check the code and tell me if I have bad code or is the problem somewhere else. I am running clean install of awesome with nothing else on the computer atm.

Here is a link to the code:
