  1. I need it to update with each viewing, not just every 15 minutes! Maybe it’s too many hits to the MDD server?

    Great widget, that’s how I discovered this lunatic asylum and how is now my fave mac site.

  2. Why is are all the story links different if you arrive from the widget than if you arrive from the front page?

    Posting via the widget link appears to take a long time to show up on the website. I posted a response to this article 20 minutes ago and it has yet to appear here on the main article page. But getting to this story via the widget link shows additional comments… odd…
