Actually, I had something very similar happen with this widget - except instead of stickies, it turned into the TV Tracker - I wonder if this is bug in Dashboard or something a little off with this widget (which I like quite a bit, by the way)

1.3 is awesome. My boss came over to ask me a question and I just pressed F12 to hide that I was reading comics.

A comic viewing widget- because Safari's just so hard to launch?

Brilliant. People- go read the f#$@ing docs about what widgets are for.

Widgets are for whatever you want them for. No reason to blast somones work because you deem it unnecassary. This is fun, widgets are fun. Why not go create your own line of useful widgets and let us have fun with those you beleive to be useless.

Gezz.

So, what are widgets for? Tools to make your life easier, correct?

As an entertainment editor and comic writer, I have a few of my favorite comics set up as widgets. So that makes it ok for me, but not for these people?

Sheesh, what do you use your widgets for, calculating the space required in your brain for your enormous ego?

I recently downloaded this widget. The first day I used the widget it worked perfectly. The second day it flashed uncontrollably and did not show a comic. And now today it works perfectly. You have to realize this is a widget running off the internet and in the hands of the status of Penny Arcade. If Penny Arcade does something that messes up the normal function of this widget I don't see how you can blame the widget for that.

Well, it should at least handle the unavailablity of the comic gracefully.

I don't call "flickering like mad" graceful in the slightest.

When I get home from work I'm gonna rip this widget open and see if it's fixable. Just a little error checking sanity.

This was fixed in version 1.2 along with the addition of requested features.

Yep, as mentioned below, it simply flashes uncontrollably without loading anything until it is quitted. Does not work AT ALL. Presumably it at least worked in 1.0, but 1.1 is screwed.
