    Default Any Mac Users here?

    I know the question seems sort of unrelated.. but I've been playing with the new iPhone/Apple SDK and created a quick little widget for the Dashboard.

    It's a countdown clock until the official send off for the big hike!

    Version 1.0. I still need to clean it up a little. Let me know what you think or have any other ideas for it.

    That looks cool.

    Any way to go out to .01 seconds? Its fun to watch those move really quick.

    Now that I think about it, you need to make a little app w/ a transparent window that stays in the foreground, so that I don't have to switch to Dashboard to see the countdown... :-)

    A Yahoo widget would be cool to do this.

    Version 1.1

    Did a couple tiny updates.

    > STP logo on front panel will now launch browser and go to STP homepage
    > Changed the MWO logo to a smaller version on the back panel and it link to the MWO home page
    > Changed the credit text on the back

    Download: StP08.zip

    I'd like to figure out how to have a text field where you could enter your hiker name on the back, then when you click on the logo on the front, it goes to your sponsorship page.

    I just emailed you several versions of the STP logo... hopefully they will help. What you've already done is very, very cool.

    As a non-Mac user, I hope someone out there can put together a Yahoo widget like that! If so, we'll give you much credit and offer it through the STP site (with your OK, of course!). Same goes for the Mac version, if you're open to it.

    My disclaimer is that I'm saying all this without checking with our esteemed IT staff... who may come back to me and say "We can't do that! Are you crazy?"

    Version 1.5

    Quick update. Added an icon that will appear in the Dashboard dock and the Widget Manager panel. I've also changed the widget name from "StP08" to "Seek the Peak" so you may have to delete previous versions as I think it will think they are two different ones now.





    Download link is now in my sig below.
