Pinball Widget Wizard

That’s what Dbag called me, a “Widget Wizard.” I don’t think that’s true, but I have now had four widgets published in the past year (three for SHS and one for fun), so that’s pretty cool. Here’s the latest:

Helzberg Diamonds Snow Globe
Basically, it’s a snow globe widget that counts down the days until Christmas. The cool part, it snows when you click on it. The even cooler part, you can upload your photo into it. Rock and roll. (Don’t have a Mac or OS X 10.4? Get the Yahoo! version.)

Virtual Fruitcake
An idea from Aaron made this a quick turnaround. This widget does pretty much what you expect it to do – nothing. You’ll have it on your desktop for a while and then, finally realizing that you’re never going to do anything with it, you’ll throw it away. Genius.

As always, these things usually don’t happen on their own, nor can I do all of these by myself. I have help. Bruno and I came up with the Snow Globe. Aaron and I collaborated on the Fruitcake. And Kevin programmed them both. Thanks fellas!

Widget Wizard, out!
