RIK THAT IS NOT YOUR WIDGET! It's NZMac.com's widget. You copied the code and just changed the RSS feeds it looks at. That's why it got removed from this site. You're a cheat and a liar, stop pushing your wares here.

This widget does the job, but could do with a few more options for RSS feeds

i'm hoping to add more feed to the next version, as well as auto checking. If anyone know any rss feeds for widgets please email them to me here:

micah@imagerymedia.com

and i'll put them in the next version.

Thanks

micah, nice widget, but could you add widget screenshots?? (also the RSS of these sites:
www.dashboardexposed.com
www.widgetdeveloper.com
www.dashboardlineup.com ...

maybee also change the layout into a better onesmiley (you could use the layout of Apple's widget page smiley )

I like what your widget does, but its interface is pretty heavy, bulky. While the screenshot idea mentioned here sounds nice, I think it would make the widget far too large. It takes up too much space and shows too little at a time as it is.

What I would like is a more minimalist interface that shows a much longer list in the window, much like Widget Manager's interface ( http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/showcase/details.php?wid=474 ), which manages to show many widgets in a small space, and, with rollovers, allows for additional functionality without cluttering the widget. A resizablel window, again like Widget Manager, would cap it off.
