    If you have five free minutes could you download and test our new Dashboard widget? Just a simple RSS reader to get the five most recent uploads on our site.

    I installed it. It's very simple but nice. It seems to work pretty well. The only minor things I noticed right away are:

    1) that you might be able to use some color or indentation to break the description up from the title and make the title stand out even slightly more.

    2) If Dashcode lets you, change the "article length" on the flipside to.... "Length of Description," or some other text other than article, which sounds like it describes the actual function more clearly.

    3) If it could be easily vertically resizable, that would be good.

    Good luck!

    North of where I'd like to be
    1. Didn't crash my machine
    2. I figured out what the length was by playing with it
    3. Your Web site should be a little more discriptive of what the widget actually does
    4. Good work/good luck

    I agree with mkrishnan, you should make it so the widget can be resized, not only vertically, but also horizontally.

    I have a lot of widgets running. Mainly MySQL, iStat Nano, a couple weather, Calendar, World Clock, and a couple others...

    Other than that, good looking. Keep up the good work!
