Download link broken (http://hobbes.osxy.nl/download.php?fileID=11) Developer link in Dutch and seems to have no mention of Say Cheese I still have a copy I run, but it's broken for most strips due to age and probably copyright issues (see FreeComics and Funny Pages listings for comments on this). Last update was November 2008? It's dead, Jim. Oh well, Free Comics still works on the large majority of its comics for me since I downloaded it before it was embargoed by the copyright police. Funny Pages works but I've only tried the demo and because it is pay-for shareware, I predict it'll get obliterated by the copyright people posthaste.

Say Cheese isn't able to load the daily Peanuts comic. I assume this is because the comic website has been updated or changed. Is there an easy way to fix this? If not, will a new Say Cheese update be coming anytime soon? Thanks.

I agree. It's the only weak point I found in this widget.

Would be nice to be able to specify a scale for comic images, for those of us whose eyesight is lacking...

I just downloaded the Leapord version of Say Cheese and the Calvin & Hobbes doesn't work. Also, the buttons on the info section (back of the widget) are off-set. Besides that it seems fine though occasionally it locks up Dashboard temporarily.

I truly love this widget, but I would like it if there were more comics to choose. There are several of the comics that just give "Error" now such as "Calvin & Hobbes", "Shoe" and "Wulffmorgenthaler" to name a few. I think there are more, but I don't have them selected. I used to get all three of these and now none of them display. If I have done something wrong or done something that I shouldn't have please let me know. "Calvin & Hobbes" is one of my favorites comics. Thanks for this widget.

I love this widget but I'm having a hard time getting it to work on my Macbook. Whenever I try to open the widget in dashboard it flashes up on the screen for a second and then disappears completely. Please help 'cause I miss my comics!!

Delete the preferences. - Close the widget - Delete: Library/Preferences/widget-killerwidgets.widget.say cheese.plist - Open the widget. Don't look at Shaw Island, it is broken, the developer has stopped making Shaw Island.

This is a great widget. I think the only thing that would make it better is the inclusion of "The White Ninja". I look forward to updates.

flipping brilliant! works smoothly and it has some of the best internet comics - though it is limited by the fact that you can't subscribe to more. But hey, it's free.

And I will repeat it again: Adding comics is out of the question here. We provide quality control on the comics so that they load as fast as possible and with less errors. We'll include more comics (on request) in the next releases. The reasen for this is that most of the webcomics does't have a "normal" archive it has been changed during time and you can't relay on 1 link. (site.com/ddmmyyyy.jpeg next week HDIDEyymmdd.png (numbers are total not-regular)) It takes a lot of core-programming to let al the comics work.
