Published:

Description

Dieselpunk/Cyberpunk/Steampunk Yahoo thermionic valve nixie tube widget.

Latest changes include :

Resizes with CTRL+ Mouse scrollwheel. New about us page, repositions properly on tablet devices in portrait/landscape mode. Can be locked by clicking on the second tube. Please test it - it is currently untested so feedback please.

That title - what a mouthful! but it is worth saying as it is now fully working!

Previous changes: Added the ability to turn off the sounds and enable the second indicating tubes. It also now resizes. This is a simple widget that displays a continuous time update on your desktop. It is based upon Nixie tubes that were used as status indicators/displays in the 50/60s - 70s. The originals have a character of their own which this widget aims to replicate.

This widget acts as a simple clock upon your desktop and as an extra benefit it is also a moveable bit of eye-candy. It is a fully working widget. Please feel free to download it.

You will, yahoo-widgets-logo.png of course, need Yahoo widgets for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here:
lightquick.co.uk/jdownloads/ya…

and the Mac version here: desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2…

This widget runs in XP/Vista/Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS/X. If you have any problems please post your email queries to our contact page. I will endeavour to answer them as soon as I can.

========================================================
Instructions for running Yahoo widgets on Mac OS/X, all recent versions including Sierra.

Edit the following file:

com.yahoo.widgetengine.plist which is in /Users/xxx/Library/Preferences. Look for these lines:    <key>DockOpen</key>
   <string>false</string>

Change to false if it is true.

Then you should be able to start Yahoo! Widgets and the menubar item should appear. Widgets can then be started from the menubar or by double-clicking them in the usual way.
