For the scroll bar issue, you could "teach yourself" by studying the code from the scrollbar of the Gmail Checker widget or the Wikipedia Widget. This is assuming you don't have a Tiger build. If you do, just study the code from the Phonebook widget, or the Dictionary widget

Sorry man. There's just a lot that could be improved on, starting with the submit button and scroll bars.

Also have a look at the example code which comes with Mac OS 10.4. There is an example for the scrollbar issue and you are free to use that code for your own widget.
