It looks like this hasn't been updated in a long time.
This is a bug, and a tip for users:
When there is a long quote, which requires a scroll bar, make sure to scroll back up before leaving the dashboard. If this is kept scrolled down, you may see textless windows. It seems the widget remembers where you scrolled to, and doesn't default to the 'top' position.

Has anyone else had this widget crash? I haven't had any reports, so I am at a loss as to what happened for the user below. Please email me if you experience any troubles.

Very clean interface, lots of quotes, and even little icons of the characters. Great idea for a widget!!! I could sit here and read quotes all day long. The only thing is (like just about every internet list I've seen of simpsons quotes), many of the quotes have minor inaccuracies or are slightly misquoted. But otherwise, a great widget.

From console.log:

2005-08-01 17:12:07.828 DashboardClient[813] bindings/objc/WebScriptObject.mm:214:[813] JavaScript exception: Can't find variable: thumbTop
(event handler):Can't find variable: thumbTop
2005-08-01 17:12:20.262 DashboardClient[813] (com.jonlink.simpsonbot) undefined: Can't find variable: thumbTop (line: 0)
(event handler):Can't find variable: thumbTop

Several of these appear every time the widget tries to load a quote. Also, I'm not too fond of the bloated-looking window, but that's just personal preference. I wish I didn't delete the previous version.

sure. i agree that the simpsons have gotten a bit stale, but the quotes are classics i think. funny is funny as far as i am concerned.

i'll have a family guy widget out by next week. thanks for the suggestion.

Like hell. The Simpsons will always be classic. Perhaps you watch too much tv . . .
