Worked very well reading console back-up log entries until OS Sierra and its' newly fashioned Console application, leaving the widget empty... works from 10.6.8-10.11.5 Operating Systems

It doesn't do what I expected, and I'll probably never use it again, BUT in installing it I found that my Time Machine hadn't been loading since March. That was good enough for me.

On this website it says it is version 1.03. If you go to the web site it says it should be 1.04 but on the web site once you download the widget it says it is version 1.02. So the developer needs to fix this as soon as possible.

The widget didn't produce any output. It probably only works with administrator privileges.

Developer's site says "The widget will poll the system logs for backups every 15 minutes. If a backup is active it will poll every 5 seconds until completed. If the Dashboard is closed all polling is stopped. You can manually trigger a refresh by mouse clicking the refresh button." In the first place, this means that the usefulness of this widget is very limited: it won't log the operation of Time Machine in the background, which is after all what Time Machine is all about. In the second place, when I do bring up the Dashboard layer and click the refresh button absolutely nothing happens. So instead of being largely useless, this widget is totally useless. If the developer will post a version that works as advertised, I'll be glad to try it. If he will post a version that works alongside Time Machine in the background and logs all its activity (probably with a Clear Log option to keep things from getting ridiculous), then he will have done us all a big favor. But this version isn't it.
