Dashboard color converter for HSV, RGB, and HEX formats.

HSV, RGB, and HEX conversions were broken in version 1.7, and in the flurry of errors surrounding Dashboard's unpredictable 4096 byte limit, went unnoticed till version 1.9! Rest assured, it's fully functional again in 1.9.7.

It's been a bit of a rough transition, but Chroma features should all be working again. Version 4.2.1 now uses a system-wide library preference to prevent data loss when updating or deleting widgets, and of course, bypasses the whole nightmare of having to use a separate file to store the library data (albeit nice for syncing via Dropbox, it just wasn't reliable on many mac systems where command line data truncation was an issue). While it's possible to create multiple instances of the Chroma widget, all of which would share the system-wide library, saving in one widget would overwrite changes from other instances of the widget. For obvious reasons, I don't recommend this. :P Let me know if you find any issues, I'll do my best to fix them!

I deleted all the presets you had in there by default and now it won't let me do anything. Just says "Library processing already in progress" and just stalls no matter what I click on. I even deleted the preferences file from ~/Library/Preferences/ and it just somehow recreates the file I had from before which was put into the Trash. Need to fix this.

I'm looking for a dashboard widget that can do this, except I need to be able to eye-drop colors from stuff I'm looking at on a web page, graphic, or whatever I'm viewing. In other words, I need to be able to quickly "steal" any color's hex value currently displaying on my screen by clicking on it with an eye dropper-like tool.
