    Hi, dno if this has already been posted any where on here, but this little program will let you have your own coundown on your desktop for any time set. in particular its useful to count down these last few extruciating hours for keynote!! :) its made for WINDOWS unfortunately, but seeing as i cant afford a decent mac yet its fine by me :p hope some one finds it useful, also i attached a apple keynote skin with it that i made. its pr0.

    Thanks!

    Definitely the thought that counts, thank you!

    I am stuck at work, and work is PC-only, so therefore.. uh... when in Rome... um... use Windows? Hmm, something like that...

    I will try it out for tomorrow!

    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

    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.
