I agree. It looks fantastic.

do you know a lot about coding? how long did it actually take you? is it fairly easy to pick up for the first time and start coding?

I really like the transparency :cool:

Anyone have information about how this works (FAQ, help files, etc)....seems like it is going to be a nice product

It was easy for an RSS widget...90% of the work was just design through photoshop, and I did play around with the display fonts, but I did not do explicit coding for this one

I have started my own little creations as well, but for some reason why does the RSS feed not show up, I have done the drag and drop and the manual method 'networking is on ?

I was having some problems with the drag and drop thing myself, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't

I think this is something leopard will release, this build is too buggy to be finished

Well I have only "seen" it in action and it is very buggy :mad:

Looks good, just check the bottom bar...looks like theres a chunk missing from the middle of it along the straight horizontal surface. Tho maybe its my eyes :(

Wow! That transparency looks sexual! Did you use AquaPro colours for that? I also like the diagonal stripes on it. Really hot stuff!
