Les Bouquins Should be updated pretty regularly.

Everyone else, get the program! This is being worked on as I type!
07-26-2005 04:10 PM

Les Bouquins So would you use a Saablink one if I created it? I need the OK from the moderators and whatnot though... I just don't want to kill bandwidth, as mentioned before.

danthegolfer whered you find the "lowest gas prices" one i looked but didnt see it
07-26-2005 03:41 PM
PaulH hmm, just downloaded it, pretty damn neat, need a bigger monitor though, theres just too much crap all over my 14" CRT now

07-26-2005 03:28 PM
Les Bouquins I'll also think about incorporating a search engine into it.
07-26-2005 03:26 PM
Les Bouquins Since it's text, I don't think it should be too bad...
07-26-2005 03:24 PM
guru Hell yeah, I'd use that. I mean, I basically live on the search page, but it'd be nice to give that a rest. Any idea how this will "drain" bandwidth, Thom?

Les Bouquins Widgets in that screen shot include:
-Album cover artwork with integrated iTunes controls
-RAM status
-Processor activity
-Battery life (white gauge)
-Moon phases
-Lowest gas prices for your zip code
-iPod controls for itunes
-Extreme weather reports
-Today in history

There's even a Swedish translator widget! Go download!

Everyone read! Cool idea!

Everyone go download Konfabulator! It features Widgets like Dashboard in the new Mac OSX, Tiger. Included is a screen shot of my desktop on my Powerbook. It's SO worth checking out. Anyway, here's the significance of this post in regards to the forum:

I'm going to design a widget for the Saablink that will sit on everyone's desktop... from here, you will be able to see all recent topics and brief text beneath them, showing what the thread refers to. I might use a turbo gauge or a griffin or something for the animation... it will essentially be based on the php file on the homepage with the scrolling subjects. What's everyone think? Would anyone actually use this?
