Thursday night, I started to play with Konfabulator. Someone on the forums was asking for a widget to view web cams. It looked like an easy change to an existing widget, so I did it and released it on the Konfabulator gallery. Now it’s had 1,500 downloads in about 48 hours, and the emails are starting to come in with new feature ideas.
Probably the coolest thing about Konfabulator is the speed that it lets you build a little program. It took me all of a half an hour to build my program - and that with never having used Konfabulator before.
