    Well, this counts as a 'weird find' rather than a 'good find' but I find it hilarious that the weather widget tells me I should be bundling up in layered clothes instead of thinking about taking some off...

    Yup, nalito din ako diyan. Turned out that the weather info is for Manila, Arizona.

    Use AS;PH;MANILA as the location if you're going for Manila, Philippines. Hover your mouse over the weather widget, click on the "i" on the lower right corner, then change the location. :)

    I used "Manila, Philippines" for my weather info widget. Though right now I am wishing it was the 11 degrees Celcius reading.

    Here are a few more widgets. The Capture widget is pretty handy.

    EDIT: Haha! Carlo and I seem to have posted simultaneously. Oh well, you can still check out the other widgets in the link above. ;)

    My name is freelancer and I am a Widget addict.

    Been checking out widgets for a couple of days now and so far I've downloaded the search widgets for Version Tracker and IMDB, Air Traffic Controller, Countdown Calendar, DailyVerse, and ell-Jay.

    This has to stop sometime or else I might have to get a 21" display just to accommodate all the widgets. :D
