    It's that time of year again! :)

    Anyway...
    The Widget:

    I am anxiously waiting for WWDC 2006 this year, and I would imagine a lot of you are too. So, I decided to make this simple widget. I worked hard on it, gave it some effort - but in the end it turned out to be pretty easy, after number trial and error testing.

    The widget is stable and, I think, it looks great. I spent more than needed time in photoshop to make the images look exactly how I wanted them to. All the images you see there were hand made - by me.

    You can download the widget here, according to your time zone and/or area:

    Central US time
    PDT US Time
    EST US Time
    Hawai'i
    US Mountain Time
    Alaska
    Norway
    UK

    If anyone would like the Dashcode file or source, PM me or say so in this thread.

    Damn I put too much time into this thread...
    oh, and.. Sorry about the "One more thing..." thing, I just had to. :o :D

    Try clicking all over the done button - like to the right of it.

    Let me see if I can replace that button.

    I just realized this.

    Any downloaded widget from this thread is set to go off at 12:00 Central time, the time when the keynote starts for Central US people.

    So I redid it and made a countdown widget for everyone in the US.

    Central US time
    PST US Time
    EST US Time

    Couldn't you figure out which zone the user is in and adjust as needed?

    I tried. I didn't know how.. :eek:

    If someone is out of the US and needs a different time zone, let me know how many hours to deduct or add.

    Thanks.

    How 'bout having one widget with a preference on the backside to adjust for timezone (dropdown of offset from GMT perhaps)?
