color output from git log -p on OSX

By default git on OSX wasn't colorizing its output. Two things needed to be setup - setting the color.ui to auto and setting the pager (less) to allow raw characters. Add this to ~/.gitconfig [color] ui = auto [core] pager = less -R Presto! Nice colorized output from git!

NASCAR Countdown Dashboard Widget

This is a simple countdown widget for the OSX Dashboard. It is a pure javascript implementation so it will also run inside a web browser as you can see above. This widget will display the time until the next NASCAR Broadcast, the countdown takes into account your local timezone. This widget was inspired by the Sprint Cup Widget which is now outdated. I used the graphics for the Daytona countdown from NASCAR and modified it to calculate the correct time and select the next available race.
