I finally got the first version of the Fish Gadget completed! Right now the fish can follow your mouse or swim around if the mouse is not active. They can also eat the food you give them by clicking the mouse. Over the next few weeks I will be adding new features, so if you have any requests, please leave a comment. I will also be making it compatible with other pages too like Pageflakes, Netvibes, etc.
I just added an update to the Tree Frog Gadget that allows you to display a jpg image behind the frog. Just edit your preferences and add the address of the jpg image to the Background Image textbox.
It looks like most of my Google Gadgets are temporarily unavailable due to my exceeding the bandwidth allowed by Google Pages. I wish that there was a bandwidth meter available so that I could have seen this coming.
I’m going to have to find another place to host my gadgets.
Update: If any of the google gadgets are not working for you, you should be able to get them working again by adding them to your page from this site. This will retrieve the gadget from the new location.
I made some bug fixes to the Tree Frog Google Gadget that should improve the load time. I also added a minor update that allows users to add four colors of their choosing. To do this, the user adds hex colors to the new Custom Color text boxes and then selects the custom color from the drop downs. This will make it easier for people to match the tree frog to the color of their site when using this page.
Stay tuned for a color chooser gadget that I should be done with late tonight or early tomorrow.

I’m releasing an update to the tree frog gadget this weekend. This update will allow users to change the color of the tree frog’s body, hands/feet, eyes and the background. You will also be able to change the size of his belly. Here are a few pictures to show you how you might modify him:
I’ve been spending some time on the tree frog lately and plan on making an update with in a week or two which will allow users to customize the way he looks. Here is one way he could look after being customized:
I recently finished my latest module, Disc Drop. It is a Plinko-like flash game written in actionscript and compiled with MTASC. I have made it compatible with several start pages: Google, Netvibes, Pageflakes, Protopage. It should be available for Webwag users within a few days. If you want to add it your personal website or to a site like MySpace you can use the Add to Webpage link.
Oh yeah, and my high score so far is 185!
