    I agree. It looks fantastic.

    (There's a notch in the bottom bar)

    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 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

    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!
