Okay, after wrecking a few pairs of pants, some shirts, and other stuff, I've discovered there are little tags on clothing with odd symbols. Apparently you're supposed to know what these things mean (which most 20-something single guys don't).

My idea (and it's a simple one): the Laundry Care Guide. This seems to be a perfect widget - something that you quickly look at, and isn't too complex.

Here's a page with the icons, and the meanings: http://www.textileaffairs.com/lguide.htm

What do you guys think? Something that's handy and easy to do, or should I study up and remember these little things?

I think what you want is called a "bookmark". I don't see the point of all the widgets that display one hard-coded item.

Don't be an ***. I assume you'll tell eveyone else that they need a real clock, a calendar, or a calculator on their desk instead of widgets.

I suggested the widget because it should be easy to make something that's helpful for people in a compact and cool way. Obviously I already have the thing bookmarked. What I didn't ask for was some *** to come on here and suggest that I bookmark a website. Half the widgets out there are pulling in comics, webcams, RSS feeds and other material that could be easily bookmarked. You're going to be a busy boy posting "bookmark this" to threads.

i can see where you are coming from, but it might just be better to memorize them

Sorry about that PowerMac. I didn't consider the use of those words to be profane since they're used regularily on network television shows rated PG-13 (yes, I use a television rating system as a language guide - haha). Thanks for the heads up.
