I copied the example from this article exactly and it doesn't work. I tried cleaning it up and looking for a variety of problems.

I gave up.

I tried Apple's article

and it worked great. I successfully created my first Dashboard widget. It's a Backup ROI calculator that I use to help clients figure out how much money they save by having a reliable backup.

Dashboard is great, but I shouldn't have to debug an O'Reilly article to figure it out.
