Rock! Great to have this kind of widget. Now I can check to see how much data is going to be deleted before emptying the trash! I think it'd be cool to have more features in future versions. Like, being able to empty the trash and open the trash folder by double-clicking it. Stuff like that. That's all I can think of adding at the moment. Great widget! Very useful for me ^^

Thanks! Now, can you make it a bit smaller? Dashboard real estate is not huge.

Nice trash widget!
but could you make it smaller?

I liked your Widget, but it's really to big to be used. Around half the size would be appropriate.

By the way...

Would be cool if you could add the amount of trash and spam in Mail too.

Good widget - but I would prefer a light background colour and different style font, if that's possible smiley And I agree that it's a bit too big...

Seems a bit similar to my widget:

Very cool. Great looking.

Hm, it appears I and maxintosh had the same idea at the same time. I know there was nothing that did what I needed when I started coding.

Thanks for your comments! The next step is making the widget more compact. I have a 20" iMac G5, so I never really noticed how much space it wastes. ^^;
