The success of 'It's Nixie Time v.2' was huge! I was contacted by Mike, who said "cool widget but it's just too large and crowds the dashboard. please consider making a much smaller version."
So, I sent Mike an email! - "Thanks for the feedback. Hmm.. OK! When I get some more time, I'll do up a smaller one & see how it goes. I agree, it could still be a bit big. I will let you know when I have something finished."
Mike seemed to like that idea... He responded "hi sascha, it think it could be a top 50... maybe so at this size. i still have it on my mac but i did have to disable it for lack of real estate.... maybe if i had one of those 30' displays but not with my puny 17. definitely keep me informed. have a good weekend."
( and a good weekend was had! )
Now.. I wouldn't exactly call a 17" puny! I'm making do with a 12" but what the heck. Not wanting to disappoint Mike, I once again fired up Photoshop and HERE is a new version of my 'It's Nixie Time v.2' widget! - now 50% smaller!
