Version 1.25, released 2007-02-20
A small widget to display your uptime and keep track of the record uptime. Inspired by my screensaver ShowOff. This is my first attempt at creating widgets. Suggestions for improvements or entirely new widgets are more than welcome.
At this time, ShowOff Widget displays current uptime, record uptime (since installation), load (average cpu usage over the last 1, 5 and 15 minutes) and swap usage (displayed as used/total). See wikipedia articles on load and swap for more information.
Mac OS X v.10.4 Tiger is required. If you're using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget's icon in the Widget Bar to open it. If you're using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive and doubleclick on it to install.
ShowOff Widget works on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
