10.4: Cut down on the World Clock widget's CPU usage
Authored by: boredzo on Jun 13, '05 01:26:02PM

if you edit the World Clock widget while it's open, you don't have to close it; simply press ⌘R while your mouse cursor is over the open widget.

10.4: Cut down on the World Clock widget's CPU usage

You have to click on the widget before pressing ?R.

I just changed the line that reads:
timerInterval = setInterval("updateTime(true);", 1000);
to
timerInterval = setInterval("updateTime(false);", 1000);
and processor usage dropped to 2% from 14%. That's the step for disabling the sweepback/sproing effect as mentioned above.

Seems there's a bug in geeklog where if you enter an HTML entity such as ⌘ it won't be escaped correctly after you preview your comment, so when submitting it'll get screwed up.

That ?R up there is supposed to be a ⌘R.
