    I was happily mucking about PhilMUG looking for a RSS Widget, I found randytamayo's PhilMUG widget but it wasn't working for me on 10.4.9 at least. Too bad, really didn't have much use for RSS readers like NetNewsWire etc. since I really only visit a handful of sites, might as well reinvent the wheel.

    I'm currently developing on Macs anyway and thought I'd make my own PhilMUG RSS widget as a learning experience, I'm developing on Cocoa anyway so I might as well learn to do Dashboard widgets to tie into my app, so I dove into it since I figured that I was versed on javascript and CSS it wouldn't be too hard, I then realized that I'd downloaded DashCode Beta a few months before. I fired it up for the first time and behold, there was a template for an RSS reader... Ah well rather than waste time I just used the template... so much for wheel reinventing. Here's a screen shot:

    Nothing fancy here I didn't have any higher resolution images to play around with anyway. It just works as expected. It took me all of twenty minutes. Thought it might be of interest to other people.. You can download it here. I used RapidShare. Mabuhay everybody...
