A while back iSlayer announced he was working on a TPG usage widget on Whirlpool but nothing ever came of it....i'm happy to be the beta boy if it can still happen :)

in the meantime you can use Launch!TPG (http://curmi.com/Launch!%20TPG.html)

Sorry... we did have plans at one point, but were distracted by some other shiny (http://www.islayer.com/index.php?op=item&id=28) things (http://www.islayer.com/index.php?op=item&id=7). :)

And we love those but after such a long wait can the spotlight be put back on a usage widget? :)

The big issue with doing usage widgets etc, is that they usually require screen scraping to work. Ie. they're inherently hacky by nature = not too much fun to do and they can break at any time, even if you've done a great job.

If someone else wants to make a TPG usage meter, then I can probably knock up some nice graphics.

Widget? No, a real app would be better (no offence Widget devs). Check out Ration development at www.blargsoft.com which is currently (still! read this Jedda) in private beta but moving along slowly but surely.

Ah yes! I was trying to remember the name of the app (Ration) when I posted.

Looks like a very promising app. :thumbup:

He stated (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=32918&highlight=jedda) in the next week or two it would be opened for more testers

I'm sent many e-mails and messages from MacTalk with no replies at all now :-(
