GeekLikeMe Dashboard Widget for your Mac.

If you've been reading my daily logs you might have noticed that I've been messing around with creating dashboard widgets for Mac OS X over the past couple of days. What exactly is a dashboard widget you ask? In a nutshell, its a mini-application that you can run on your Mac's dashboard section. In this case, the mini-application I put together displays the last three days of links that grace the front page of GeekLikeMe.net.

I tried to keep the layout and design of the widget to be compact as to not disrupt anything else that might already be running on a user's dashboard. This is my first attempt at making a widget but I have a feeling I'll be making more as time goes on. Of course, with the next version of Mac OS X Leopard right around the corner I think everybody will making a lot more widgets. More on that coming in a verbose post later this week.

Widget Download

To use this widget you must be using Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Download the file located in this post and double click it to unarchive it to your desktop. Then click on the black widget icon to install to your dashboard. If there are any questions or comments regarding this widget feel free to leave a comment.
