Our first Dashboard widget; it is a simple one doing just one thing: it shows the uptime, that is the time period from the last boot, together with the date and time of that last boot. Now that MacOS is unix based, it is normal not to turn off our Mac, but simply put it to stop; this widget monitors how long your Mac is on.
As far as we know, this is the only one uptime widget showing also the seconds (the terminal unix command doesn't show them!).
On the back, you can choose how many seconds to refresh the display; this can be set from 1 to 60 seconds and it is saved among different launches of the widget. As suggested by Apple in their guidelines, the widget stops the count when the user exit the Dashboard, so there is no CPU load. From version 2 on, it also saves the longest uptime period and shows it on its back. Obviously, this recording is not updated if the widget is closed.
