I made a widget that takes the RSS feed from a site that I commonly visit, Folklore.org, which is a site that features a collection of stories about the original days of the macintosh (many of which were written by the original key players of the site). I was wondering if a few of you could download it from here just so I can know if it works for everybody or not.

Also, I did not get permission from the site to make this widget. I emailed them but I am waiting for a reply. And, the feed is only updated every month or so when new stories get added, so there isn't a huge amount there. For me it was more of a project just to see if "I could."

My next project is a widget for Apple-History.com, that will work as a sort of mini encyclopedia for Apple products. I emailed them also, and have not yet gotten their permission for this, so...

I would like to thank Sarahsboy for his excellent job with the Mac-Forums widget. I based this widget upon the files that were packaged with that one. You did a fantastic job!

I would love to recieve constructive criticism on this. There are a few thing I know I don't like already: The top and botton bars: They are boring and the text doesn't show up well on them. The Update button is not placed well.

UPDATE: Back Fixed
