Great little widget, best of it's kind. BUT one big problem, on my 3Ghz Mac Pro, it uses 100% of one processor. I didnt notice this until I opened Activity Monitor and it was there at the top with 100% processor usage... I cant keep the widget running with it using that crazy amount of processor time, but when that's fixed, i'll download it right away and i'm sure it'll stay in my Dashboard.

It occurs to me that perhaps if you were using this you might've discovered this behavior sooner.

Actually, I do usually use MenuMeters, it's great! It's just that I recently reinstalled OS X on my RAID, so I didn't have it installed. Menumeters is the greatest menu extra ever! Just a little tweak to Fans, and i'm sure that it could be great :)

I know about the CPU time problem. But that doesn't occure on all Macs. For example: There is no problem on my MBPro. But currently I am working on a completly new version of Fans to solve this problem. Nelson
