Regarding the “Stocks” dashboard widget that comes with Tiger and Leopard. I deleted the Dow Jones and NASDAQ symbols from my Widget Menu (in an attempt to reinstall and fix the thing). Is there any way to successfully reinstall this widget (Stocks) and again display the Dow Jones and NASDAQ numbers. Would also like the S&P 500. Can’t find a way to do this. Since Yahoo wrote the thing, I have tried them with no success either.

First step is to get to Dashboard, which you can do by pressing f12 on most Macs or the little tiny dashboard icon on the MacBook Air. Now you’ll see the stock widget along with whatever else you have configured: click on the little “i” on the lower right corner of the widget.
Now you’ll be at the widget’s stock ticker input area, where you should type in the name of the ticker. Here I’m using NYSE for the New York Stock Exchange Composite ticker:
I click ~ez_ldquo+ez_rdquo~:
Select it, and now notice the very bottom symbol, highlighted here:
That should solve the problem you face. Now, if we could just see the stock exchange itself moving upwards…
