Here's mine. In the top left is a widget I wrote myself to check school status (delayed, canceled, etc.), and I have the Calculator skinned my alunimum calc skin.

I don't have Tiger yet, so I don't have a pic to post here - but I do have a quick question -

You have all those widgets on your screen, are they always there or in the background when you use another app? It just seems a bit cluttered to me...

The 'Dashboard' is like a fourth Exposé function. You hotkey/corner in to access, and hotkey/corner out when you're done.

They are permanently displayed on your screen. There is nothing you can do about it. Just kidding ... they are displayed only when you want to see them. They are typically utilities you would like to have at your fingertips without having everything open at the same time.

Have a look at your activity monitors.

And we thought Konfabulator was a resource hog. :rolleyes:

I'll post mine here in a few once Spotlight finishes indexing the 6,000 fonts I just put in. :rolleyes:

This thread should be labeled, "How many ways can you place widgets on the Dashboard".

I see many of you have the translator widget - how often do you actually think you'll be using it?

Also, I imagine once the novelty wears off, you'll have totally different widget collections - we'll have to do a now and then thread in a year or so, so save all the images for comparison.

Fuzzy's Dashboard goodness:

Is that weather widget the same one that comes standard from Apple? Why is yours blue and some others are purple? Is the color customizable? :)

What is yours set on, or did you modify it?
