Wicked Widget of the West

Attention Mac-using BoC supporters! In the grand tradition of outsiders improving this blog's services for free, Kelly Phillips of HockeyWidgets.com has built a Battle of California widget as part of his NHL 3.0 Icetime Dashboard.

Now I should be clear for those who are unaware--I am a techno-idiot. I'm a guy who still needs to make quotation marks with his fingers whenever he says the word "widget", and I've never been cool enough to be a Mac user. So while I can't offer any first-hand testimonial about how awesome this is, I have been assured that once I get widget-savvy, I will love it.

The widget (which sometime soon will be available for PCs) not only provides BoC RSS feeds and a link to the blog, but generally can serve as an NHL scoreboard / schedule with league and team statistics as well. Here's how the BoC front of it will look:

Anyway, in order to upload it, you may need better instructions than what I can offer. You can read more about it at Battle of Alberta and Battle of Ontario, substituting in "California" where it seems appropriate. If you have any questions or issues, leave a comment here and I will pass it along to Kelly, who deserves a ton of thanks for putting in the effort of designing widgets for all the Battle sites. Kudos!

Hey, no problem. Wait, that wasn't me.

I have no use for that junk anyway; I use an eMachine!

Yay, looks shiny! (and it's something Mac-ers get before PC-ers. This naturally makes me happy) I'll download it once I get home :D

I was under the impression there would be no math on this blog.
