I always enjoyed these widgets, but with recent wpmu and wp versions they are slightly broken and the author isn't actively developing them anymore.
If someone thinks they are worth fixing, I'd be happy do sponsor a few beers...
Specifically not posting this n the jobs section, as I am not willing to pay more than a couple of beers.
here is the link: http://www.daikos.net/widgets/
btw. if there are equally good alternatives, I'd be happy to hear abut those too.
