*UPDATE* - Please read my justification for the reviewers who "Don't see the point" in NG in a Box in my latest news post on my user page.
---
Newgrounds in a Box loads data from the various Newgrounds RSS feeds and displays it in a friendly format, giving you an at-a-glance summary of the latest happenings on Newgrounds. And for extra convenience, it is also downloadable so you can use it on your desktop!
Go here to download it: dissoluteproductions.com/
NG_box.php

All the information you see is the latest, so this is an easy way to stay up to date. I've kept the style as similar to Newgrounds as possible to keep it friendly and familiar, most of the graphics are taken off the site, so I can't claim credit for that.

Some of the 'roll over' icons may take a few seconds to load, as in the flash portal, so be patient.
And btw, the visualizer isn't real. I haven't got flash 9 yet :(

I am very suprised by what you've done.

This is absolutly magnificent! Having Newgrounds in a Box was a fantastic idea in my opinion. Also, the fact that you can download this and add it to your desktop is just plain brilliant! It has all elements from Newgrounds like the Flash Portal, the Audio Portal, New News Posts, The Daily Top 5, Best of the Week, etc. Also, I like how this gadget keeps getting updated. This is very unique and I think it's awesome! Overall, this gadget is fantastic and I enjoyed using this! Fantastic Work Eon! :D

Very nice...

...but i don't see myself using this. There's not much need for this because you can just use a browser to do the similar thing, but without the loading. But anyways, nice idea! It would be great if you could make a thing like this with flash lite. So that people could use newgrounds with their cellphones. I'm not even sure if that's possible.
I myself dunno how to communicate between flash and server... so I'm gonna have to give you at least 8/10 : )
