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.
Damn, you beat me to it! Well I still have another comic based widget in the works. Good Job though! mighty fine!
P.S. Would you mind if I peaked at the code for this one for use with another one I was interested in working on?
Keep up the great work.
