Today Kiro posts his top 5 dashboard widgets. And one of them caught my attention: Delivery Status. It allows you to track shipments from all the big couriers.

Now I can keep track of my Mac Pro very easily, automatically updating every hour, AND it supports Growl! Yey!

Only thing I miss, is the ability to track more than one shipment at a time. For instance I would love to be able to track both the Mac Pro, AND the extra RAM I ordered. With that being said, it’s not often I need tracking multiple packages, or even one – at least with the international couriers. Most packages in Norway are sent via the postal service, because they happen to be doing a decent job over here.

    You can track multiple shipments just by opening another copy of the widget. Your settings will be saved for each copy of the widget independently. Cheers!

    Ah, but of course Mike! Me so stupid. I was actually looking for an option like this, but didn’t even stop to think about the most obvious one. Yeah, I don’t spend too much time in the Dashboard management section.
    Thanks for the heads-up 🙂
