Minor Groovy Fish Update

March 17th, 2010

Newton’s Cradle Gadget

November 28th, 2008
Some of you have probably already seen the Newton’s Cradle gadget. Just figured I would announce it here for those who subscribe to the blog. It is currently available for iGoogle and Chumby. The Chumby version adds another dimension to the gadget, since it responds to tilting. I’ll be making it available to other sites soon.

Add Gadgets to MySpace and Blogger

July 11th, 2008
Over the past week, I’ve been adding new buttons under each of the gadgets that allow you to easily add the gadgets to MySpace or Blogger.  Some of you may want to customize the gadget before adding it to your page.  To do that, click the “edit settings” link and use the form to adjust the colors or to change other values.  When you’re finished, click one of the “add to” buttons below the customized gadget to add it to your page.

Gadget HTML Code Updated

June 7th, 2008
Yesterday, I was testing out the gadgets on MySpace and I discovered that the embed code was no longer working. They must have recently changed the way they parse the code and rewrite it. I updated the gadget html code and it should now work for you. To get the code for your page, click on the edit settings link under the gadget. You should then see a text box under the edit settings form which contains the code.
