    Mark,

    If you want a "private" tester, send the file to me at bradstreet at principia.edu

    Not yet. I much prefer the greater challenge posed by Windows

    Actually, I think I've now got a working (mostly rewritten) version. I'll post it after some "private testing"

    Default Windows

    I've never used Windows, there are challenges? My widget was downloaded and working in about 30 seconds. Oh, sorry.

    Somebody's signature says: "Mac users swear by their computers, Windows users swear at them."

    How true. Good luck! I'm sure you'll get it.

    I'm surprised that someone who likes the challenges of climbing mountains as much as you do isn't up to the challenge of using Windows. On the other hand, climbing mountains is a much more predictable experience (and a much more satisfying and enjoyable one).

    I have however risen to the challenge and once again have managed to overcome adversity and create a working Windows application (at least according to my private tester - Brad). If anyone has problems with this version I'll forward you Bill Gates contact information and he can take it from there.

    The current version is posted at: http://mtruman42.googlepages.com/SeekThePeakWidget.zip

    I've also posted this on the Yahoo! Widgets site and it will hopefully be reviewed and released soon.

    If anyone still has problems or would like to suggest any changes you can PM me or send me an email.

    68 days and counting!

    68 days? What time did you set you countdown to? I actually set it for 7am, July 26, which is official time for the trailhead send-off.

    How about a screenshot of the latest Yahoo widget as well?

    Default Jab

    I couldn't resist a little jab at Windows users. Nice job, mark, I'm sure all will appreciate it. Thanks again to BlueDog for the idea.
