Fun & Games - Garfield Daily

Description: Handy little widget for viewing the latest Garfield and Ctrl-Alt-Del comics.

Updated to version 0.4b
fixes:
- new option available that makes the garfield comic to show bigger (so that some people can read it without reaching for their glassessmiley)
- When a comic hasn't been renewed in a week, you'll get a message. (will include "go to previous" in v0.5b)

Can you make the widget any smaller?, perhaps offer to load a smaller copy of the cartoon. Extra cool would be if I could reduce the size of the widget after I've read it, and reuse the enormous amount of real estate it currently takes.

Looks great!, DeMango. For added effect, perhaps you can find a way to animate the size-changing effect, to smooth it out a bit.

This widget is great but the picture is too small: my mother is unable to read it. Please enlarge it.

Very good! Thanks. Now the only problem is the close button: with enlaged window when I try to close the widget the close button appear over the logo in the top left corner (not a great problem).

Sorry, but there is a great problem when the comic strip has more than one row. The interface is unable to contain it.

Posted by: geppo1982 on May 08, 05 (8:19 AM) for version 0.4b (current version)  

Holy SH*t, kinda knew that was coming...better fix it...
I'll fix it in 0.5b!
