    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.

    Windows Vista has a sidebar feature someone could create this for. But, doing a Yahoo Widget would run on any Windows version.

    Spyboy? Any chance you could create this? It would be a great way for you to learn about widgets! Your move is done and you have nothing to do. :-)

    I haven't played with the Yahoo widgets, but maybe a Flash version could work. If anyone has a large version of the hiker logo, I'd like to make it a little nicer looking. The ones on the website are too low res to do a tracing and get an EPS out of.

    Yahoo Widgets should be pretty easy to work with. What is nice is they are low overhead when running. I have several that load automatically on my laptop. The desktop at home in Maine uses a widget to grab the MWO images as they change - then they flow into the archiving process.
