Hi,
Wouldn't it be nice if this screenlet worked correctly.

I suppose this one did at one time, but it appears that something changed and now it does nothing but hang...

Checking it out, it appears that curl is not able to retrieve anything from the comic website anymore.

You could take a look at Buoh to get more URL's for comics; it apparently has more than 130 comics (I've never counted!). I use it for comics now, but I'd prefer a desktop widget.

For those who like UFies here is the curl you can add to your python:

It is also for ubuntu, using the last screenlets version, you just have to install this tar.gz, anyway if it doesn't work, unpack the file to your home/.screenlets directory

Hope it works for you!

Please add your stuff to launchpad. You can set up your own branch and have people get all your updates, and if you feel like it, you can add your stuff to 3rd party screenlets which will hopefully be set up as an install package. See https://code.launchpad.net/~3rd-party-screenlets-team/screenlets/3rd-party-screenlets

You can keep your stuff in a separate branch if you'd like, and then merge whenever you feel like it. I'll add you to the team if you choose to do this.
You can also keep your stuff in the main branch if that's more like your cup of tea.

Oh, and you can still keep the info here, and just keep itin synch with bzr.
