I've created my first plugin. It will go out, get all your adsense data and display it in a dashboard widget. However, because google doesn't offer the adsense API to anyone under 100,000 monthly views, i have to parse all of the HTML.
So, when you refresh the dashboard it sits there until all the information has been gathered by that widget and then the page loads.
Is there away I can make it so the dashboard isn't waiting on this widget and once it's gathered all it's information, it will then display it in it's widget?
