Brings up Dashboard and closes it right away.

Overview

Dashboard is a great addition to Tiger. Unfortunately it takes several seconds to load and refresh the widgets the first time you bring up Dashboard. DashboardStarter is a small application that brings up Dashboard and closes it right away. Drag the app to your login items and have Dashboard load the widgets in the background.

I was very excited to see this widget, but I downloaded it and placed it in my login folder as the instructions said, but to no avail. I am still waiting the 8-9 seconds the first time I launch my dashboard. ??? Anyone?

Excellent implementation, excellent distribution method - in all, a utility which should have been built-in to Dashboard as it shipped with Mac OS X. As opposed to the similar "Dashboard Kickstart", this app does its thing then gets out of the way - which is the "right" way of implementing the desired behavior. Kudos to the developer on a job very well-done.
