Current Projects: News/Blog Aggregator
It's never too early for name- and face-recognition, right?
You can change the number of news items and blog items with the nitems and bitems values. Also, you can change the colors, borders, fonts, and so forth by defining CSS attributes for .russ_box, .russ_header, and .russ_item. See this example for more information on customizing the widget.
