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.
