Non PC? This worked on my PM G5.

PC= politically correct.
Rather funny, if depressing. I like my eye candy!

I want one that tells me how much of my computer's resources Spotlight is wasting... or Dashboard and Spotlight combined.

Hey, if you don't let technology evolve, you know what you're stuck with? Windows.

Oh, alvis, Spotlight really doesn't use that much; only when you save a file. I tested it in activity monitor.

Neat! But rather depressing, I am "wasting" 280 MB for my widgets...oh well, it's for a good cause!

I'm "wasting" 132 MB for 8 widgets, if you include the Truth widget. Kinda sad, to see the memory being bogged down, but that's still not too bad, even though I only have 512 ram.
