    i'm running konfabulator with 2 weather widgets set to 'desktop.' when i use f11 to activate expose's show desktop feature it automatically moves my widgets out of the way as well. ideally, i would like to use f11 to see my weather widgets. is there any way to do this? thanks,

    I have tried long and hard to get Expose to leave the widgets in the desktop, but to no avail.

    The widgets are part of a program which uses windows to show the programs (the widgits). When you hit F11, Expose is programmed to move *all* windows out of the way. This includes your widgets.

    If you want weather that won't leave your view, try WeatherMenu. It's at http://www.afterten.com/products/weathermenu/ Go to the bottom of the screen to download it, there is a link there. WeatherMenu works great because it stays in your menu bar. It's always there.

    Edit: You probably already know this but add WeatherMenu to your start up items in the accounts pane of System Preferences, so it will start up when your computer turns on.
