The widget has received a good degree of testing this week, some people are reporting that it is not correctly linking to the website in the event of a warning, this will be fixed in the next version. Also it is necessary to press Command R to refresh the widget to display up to the second updates.

V.2.0 will be a complete rewrite in dashcode using Apples RSS engine and will be much better.

Great widget, it saves me from clicking the HK observatory homepage when there's a typhoon

I think this is a really great widget for all Hong Kongers who use a macintosh, like myself. Provides a really useful tool when the typhoon season arrives in Hong Kong.
