I was tooling around on HBO’s site, looking for Sopranos stuff, when I came across the HBO dashboard widget (requires OS X 10.4.) Wow. Schedule grid, slick Quicktime integration, and loads of graphical polish. The only negative is that it takes up a fair bit of screen real estate, but it’s maybe the most impressive widget I’ve seen yet.

Thanks for that --- I've been using it for months and never noticed that. :)
The Commandments of the EE: (9) Trifle thee not with radioactive tubes and substances lest thou commence to glow in the dark like a lightning bug, and thy wife be frustrated and have not further use for thee except for thy wages. (10) Commit thou to memory all the words of the prophets which are written down in thy Bible which is the National Electrical Code, and giveth out with the straight dope and consoleth thee when thou hast suffered a ream job by the chief electrician. (11) When thou muckest about with a device in an unthinking and/or unknowing manner, thou shalt keep one hand in thy pocket. Better that thou shouldest keep both hands in thy pockets than experimentally determine the electrical potential of an innocent-seeming device.
