Just a quickie...

aren't ya'll lucky, 2 in one day? :lol:

The iPhone seems to be fine. I sync'd it with the Dell (where it "lives"; last time I sync'd it with the Mac), then turned it off all evening. It came right up this morning, and - so far - is doing fine. :whew: Didn't need to spend money I don't have replacing my phone! (And, since I have a year to go on the contract, I'd *have* to replace it. No sense spending $$ on 2 plans.)

Speaking of Mac....Mac's have a thing called "Dashboard" on thier "dock". The dock is sorta like a laptop's desktop - except your icons are hidden until you hover over the bottom of the screen. Anyway - on your dashboard are "widgets" - little programs that stay there, easy to access. Like, a calendar, or a calculator. You can download others.....and boy, there are some COOL free ones out there.

Like my Earthquake monitor. Or my Moon-phase. Or my Asteroid/Meteor tracker (from JPL! How cool is that??).

I'm wondering if there is something similar for PCs out there - especially the Earthquake monitor and Asteroid tracker. Anyone know? These sit on/in the Dashboard, and update continually. They're way cool - I don't have to go online to see this stuff anymore. :grin:
