Upstream URL updated, thank you.

Contributed widgets are a plus by users, and can be superseded in future by recipes (like has happened with gpmdp). That's why I don't put related infos.

However it seems that the official can only update itself automatically after the timeout. And with I often use watch.update with a shortcut key to update the widget manually, which the official one doesn't seem to have. So I think the is still more useful than the official one...
