|Steampunk CPU / GPU temperature monitor Yahoo Widget 1.0.1||
Widget - Actual size on your desktop! First of all, please be aware that this is a widget that is in beta. If you are going to download this widget then please tell me if it does not work on your machine here :
Note: This widget will continue to be supported regardless of the current state of yahoo widget engine support. It runs in XP/Vista/Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS/X.
The thermometer will return valid temperatures initially one will be that of the GPU and one other sensor. However, the current version cannot guarantee it will start with the CPU temperature but it does its best! Due to the nature of the speedfan API it does not return names of sensors but just temperatures, so we have to do some guessing...
and the Mac version here:http://desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2x10a50/yahoo_widgets_4.5.2.dmg
The latest fixes in 0.19 include :
0.19 Graphical bug, selecting new sensor sometimes causes the thermometer index to be overwritten
Added several extra sensor names and ?, X or TEMP titles for the unknown sensor types, in XP - correctly identifies the sensors using the Speedfan config files and selects the appropriate sensor, lastly, now sets the tooltips so that they reflect the chosen sensor. Alarm clapper state saved to preferences, alarm slider vertical position values saved to preferences, allows you to change the sensor names displayed.The code behind the steampunk thermometer allows the yahoo widget to be resized. It can now be made significantly smaller than the standard large size and it looks rather sweet in small form. Not everything will work after a resize though! The help canvas opens and the brass plaque provides an appropriate about us window.
This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it should work on all NT5 systems (Win 2000 and server 2003). Due to the extra security restrictions on NT6 systems (Vista, Win7) some functionality will be restricted on the later versions of windows. This is hopefully being fixed.
MAC users! - This widget has specific Windows functionality and although it will eventually work for Macs too it does not at the moment. If you have any problems please post your email queries to me here. Your post will go onto the blog and I will endeavour to answer them as soon as I can.
You can see the widget in action here on youtube.
