ummmm i did say fo windows rofl...or why not get parrallels (http://www.parallels.com/en/products/workstation/mac/) and live with the best of both worlds.

1. PPC doesn't do parallels

2. I wouldn't run a .exe file from someone I don't know - well maybe in a VM

Other than that.... 9 hrs to go

Download link?

Don't have one. I got myself one of those free online ADC memberships (check out the Developer section at apple.com) and with that you can download the beta of Dashcode.

Don't know where I can host a widget unless.....

Just give me a minute or two.

Ah ha! Zip. Genius. Give us a sec.

There we go, it's just a zipped widget guys, nothing sinister. Just a simple countdown to MWSF made by myself.

You might want to check it for accuracy - it's set for a specific time here so it might be waaay off for anyone not in Aus, let me know if that's the case.

Can't figure out how to get the settings to appear on the back but there are generic countdown widgets available from Apple you can use.
