volum jumps, slider isnt smooth

No this surely is the most pointless one yet?

The volume control is practically next to the dashboard button.

Please, think different!

Well, I actually just developed it for myself because I have a full menu bar and an open dashboard. I thought that some people might have the same problem. How can you say that this is the most pointless when there are widgets that do absolutely nothing?

I'm sorry to be rude, but it's interesting that all the people that criticize other people's work don't or are not able to do that work themselves. If you don't like this widget, no-one's forcing you to use it. It might be of some use to some people.

This does nothing for me either, but I agree whoeheartedly with the developer.

Give people a break!
If someone goes to the effort of producing it, and you're not interested, at the very least its harmless. At best its a godsend to someone.
In between it may be a step on the ladder of a oneday great developer.

Can you include an option to flip it vertically?

This widget would be just fine if it controlled volume smoothly, rather than with the current lag time.

I'm surprised there is enough interest in volume adjustment to have two widgets for this purpose, but I welcome the competition. It seems that people that want a horizontal slider can use your widget and people that prefer vertical might like mine.

A quick note about using the aqua slider: Apple guidelines say to use custom UI elements for dashboard widgets and reserve aqua elements for the back/options.

There IS a volume button on your keyboard, you know.
