July 2004


Here’s what I’ve been doing lately..

Business:
  • Fitness Health Weblog
  • Icon Project for OS X software
  • Two other website designs
Personal:
  • A secret project I’m working on for OS X. Mockup stage is almost done.
  • Expanding MacThemes.net (Sidebar Navbar, Ad Banner, etc)
  • Spent lot of time playing World of Warcraft.
  • Got Battlefield 1942. Great game but I definitely need lot of practices.
Projects I’ll work on soon:
  • More smileys for Adium X
  • More Screensaver Flags. I plan to contact the original author of flag screensaver to see if we could collaborate on this and perhaps offer more features / choices / packages.
  • Website design for WoW Guild I’m in

After I’m done with most business projects, I’ll shift my attention to personal projects. It’s been a long time since I’ve done an icon set, OS X theme, etc :(

Dashboard in Mac OS X 10.4When I first heard of Dashboard in upcoming Tiger Mac OS X, my initial thought was meh, not for me but I was wrong. It’s amazing that any web designers / developers can easily develop a widget using just XHTML / CSS for interface. No Javascript or XML bullshits.

Look at the source code of Stickies widget for an example of how it’s done. Here’s a compressed version of the whole things including plists. (Thanks to Erik Veland for posting them)

I think comparing Dashboard to Konfabulator is a little silly. Read this well-written article from Daring Fireball. He explained why better than anyone can.

If you’re a developer looking to build some decent, full-featured widgets such as Dictionary, etc., send me an email! I’m itching to contribute some graphics.
