If the wrong version appears, it's because the Javascript is cached by the dock. You'll have to restart the dock (killall Dock) for it to reload.

Widget won't install with default Mountain Lion security. The developer is not "identified"

Right-click on the widget file in the Finder, select Open and it will install once you acknowledge the info that will be presented.

Thanks but this did not work. I acknowledged the info and Mountain Lion removed the widget altogether. I tried to add it back manually twice, but the version number shows as 5.10 each time.

The new 5.1.1 update properly displays the percentages as stated. It works well with even the old Growl System Prefs running under OS 10.8. However, when you click the the i button to access the settings, the widget still identifies itself as v5.0.0. Minor issue to a very useful widget if you are a Woot! customer.

I use this widget for every Woot Off. From time to time there are sync or stability issues, but generally speaking they get addressed fairly quickly by the developer.

At least for me, several attempts at download this application were successful except that I always ended up with Ver. 4.21. When I supposedly “replaced” the existing version, I still got the same version as I had before I downloaded.

The "new" version that still displays "4.2.1" version # in the widget, does have the new "Home.woot" option. I suspect the developer forgot to change the version # displayed in the widget. The Finder GetInfo window shows it as version 4.3.0.

And, Tripod2, just where is the new “Home.woot” option? I don't see it on my newly re-installed again Ver. 4.21.

The URL for downloading the Woot.com 4.3.0 widget is bad.

The URL seems to be working now, though the new widget version still retains the old version #.

Same here. Contacted the developer. Seems there is conflict with those of us using OpenDNS. Reverting back to my ISP DNS servers solved the problem for me.

Good catch, George - I didn't realize OpenDNS could have this type of impact. Thanks for the clue!

Someone at OpenDNS must have fixed something then, since 4.2.0 has resumed its normal excellent function w/o my changing a single network setting.

Lookit that - it's working again for me, too! Love it when things work so smoothly and with little fuss! A big tip o' the hat to OpenDNS (again) - they sure are kickin' ass! Thank you, OpenDNS!

Nice! Keeps track of Woot and even auto-reloads the current Woot. Has the the usual picture and title/price, plus a percentage meter and the strobe-light thingy thingy Woot-offs.

Woot! is the best. site. ever. This widget is a great way to keep track of what is going on there. I have two copies in my dashboard, one for woot and one for sellout.woot. Hope to see the shirt and wine option soon.

Hmmm. Thats odd. I will go back and see what we did wrong. There is yet another fix that is going to be updated soon that may correct that.
