If you run a mac, and don't want to open safari, then go to this site, to check for recent posts, then I have the solution. I was somewhat bored, so I created this widget. here. Just click that link and it will unzip, and ask if you want to install it. It will then list the recent posts of this site. I might make one, once I get more experienced, that just asks for a site name, like tibasicdev, and automatically looks up the recent post information.
Do you run a mac? Did you try it?
Awesome ! :P I did not found a way to reply thought but it's great, sounds like I'm gonna use it !
