With the recent and sudden demise of, the Microsoft site that hosted the various sidebar gadgets I had written, it has not been possible to download these excellent additions for your Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines.

As such, I am pleased to announce these gadgets are now available for download once again from my Skydrive account by clicking on the following links:

Countdown Gadget Update – V1.1.0

3 03 2008

A couple of days ago a new update to the Countdown gadget was released. The update included the following new features:

  • Ability to define a hyperlink for the event
  • Clicking on the gadget will launch the site detailed in the hyperlink (if configured)
  • The gadget will automatically close itself two days after the event has passed

The other noticeable addition is a PayPal donate button. If you find the gadget useful, please consider donating. It helps me pay for the expenses I incur in developing these gadgets (offsite backups, source control etc).

If you are using an older version of the gadget, you will have an automatic notification displaying on the settings page. If not you can get the updated gadget from here and of course if you like you can donate here.
