Default Texans Ticker

Well I just got Leopard, the new Apple operating system, and I was feeling creative so I created a dashboard widget that counts down to this weeks Houston Texans’ game. Once the game starts tomorrow, it will count down to the next game and so on. On the back of the widget are some links to Houston Texan related site including Texans Talk.

It's for Mac only. No offense to the Windows users, I've just been a Mac user most of my life not to mention that I worked for Apple for several years so I don't ever develop anything for Windows. So you Mac users check it out and tell me what you think.

You can download it from my site:

Thanks,
Twitch

Well it's not that I don't want to, it's just that the Apple operating system has the program to read widgets built right into it. There was a program called Konfabulator that used to run widgets. Yahoo bought the company and now offers the program for free.

http://widgets.yahoo.com/

I'll see what I can do about making my widget run in that program cause it's for Mac or PC. I may have to do a little recoding or nothing at all. I'll let you know. I'll cut Windows users slack if their Texans fans.

That's a great widget Twitch, and it's got a new home on my dashboard. I'm a Mac user too. I don't think I'll ever go back to a PC.

Not to get off topic, but I'm hoping the wife will either get me Leopard for Christmas or at least let me get it for myself. The new features look very cool.

Thanks. I was hoping there were some Mac users on here that could use it. My buddy who I go to the games with is the reason the company I work for uses Macs so he was the first person I sent the widget to. I will say this, Leopard is pretty awesome so far. At first the changes seem to be mostly cosmetic, but once you dig in you realize it's pretty different from Tiger.

So far most of my old programs have worked in it.

Sorry to get off topic everyone, but I posted it here because I know this is where most people hang out. It does relate to the Texans and football though.

Why don't you just call that "ticker" the doomsday ticker.

Instead of saying count down to chargers it should have said count down to extinction or blow out or whatever else means we completely sucked.

Man those first two games tricked us into believing. The Oilers legacy keeps following Houston. Please stop the madness...ha ha

6 days 21 hours till we make the Raiders look good.
