Ceefax Dashboard Widget

This is so cool. It’s a dashboard widget of live Ceefax!

I’m going to keep it installed as a way of counting my blessings. Every time I get annoyed at the Internet being slow I’ll try to find the same thing out on Ceefax.

It’s been around since 2006 by the looks of it, but for some reason it passed me by. Made by Matt Sephton over here

  1. Hi Iain. My widget has actually been around since May 2005 but glad you’re enjoying it. Also, I almost worked at Poke, once upon a time. Matt

  2. funny I thought I recognized the name from somewhere.

    Nice work on the widget.

    Keepin’ ceefax alive!

  3. Surely if the webernet is slow, the widget will be slow too?

    Maybe you should keep a tv by your desk and test it.

  4. I’m not sure if it worked or whether I just wanted it to, but when I used to browse around on teletext/ceefax and there were 5 pages to an article, ‘refreshing’ the screen was quicker than the auto-cycle thingy.

    The hours I spent on that thing.

    I wonder if there is a museum anywhere with ceefax in it?
