OMG another copy of our NZMac.com widget without credit! What's wrong with you people! Imitation is a form of flattery, but I prefer it when people give credit where credit is due. Please be polite enough to mention where you copied all the code from.

I'm just the person for the communication about the product and the fact is the widget have been constucted in a collective way. SO many people have particpate to it. In a way it's a mistake because we haven't the entire source of the code. We don't know if people do it them self or if they take it from another.

So i put your sentence on the to place where it's possible to download the widget and in the next version of our widget we will work on a different mode.

i apologize for the team and thank you to having show this matter.

Yes Rik it is sort of an honour to have so many people copying out entire code base, just like you did. But it's an insult to have them claim the work as their own. It's just plain rude to take code and not thank the person you took it from. Brageria is just the spokesperson for the group and didn't take the code him/herself.

Would Rik think it was OK to copy a book, change the cover and the names of the characters and then claim to be the author?

First of all, be nice guys.

Second, please update a widget listing rather than creating a whole new one so we don't have two database entries for the same widget.

I agree with you Craig... It was stupid of me to not give credit to you. (I've learned from it)

(ps.I first had your name in the file of the widget, but Hobbes (from the "timer" widget advised me to put my own name on it. so that's what I did smiley )

So close, now all I nee to do is change my name to start with G instead of C and it'll be right. Oh well, better than nothing I suppose
