Hello! can anyone send me the like to download the currency gadget shown here? or send me the link at email@example.com With best wishes, Muralitharan A S Industrial and Risk Consultant
"Unfortunately, I couldn't find a version of the same gadget for quad-core computers, so I use one called mCPU that does the same thing." I tried that one but I like iStat Combo better. It is sleeker, monitors 4 cores of a processor and allows you to choose a different color for the bar graph.
This is a good multimeter sidebar gadget. Once you get by the learning curve, it can be very useful. I found it at "The Hobby Lounge". You must sign up to download it. Check it out at http://thehobbylounge.com/forum/index.php. I am sure you will be impressed. Gary
Deb: for looking a well done imperial/metric converter, go to the HSBC bank page; they have a free small software that does such duties Spanish: HSBC Convertidor de Unidades or give me a link so i can send it to you Arturo Ruiz Chetumal,Mexico
Yes I think it is very good only 1 thing I run XP pro with a sidebar on the right side and would like to install 2 of your Gadgets but do not know how can you help me please David Hemming
I also like the "Eject CD" gadget. it is especially useful on my laptop, where the eject button is hard to find! I just discovered that it will also eject a disk in my external drive as well!
Cute but cluttery. Great if you're using them all like a few times a day, otherwise, find a web page!
A few years back I wrote a unit converter for many types of conversions. I think its time to resurrect some code and look at designing some widgets :-)
put your task bar what normally sits on the bottom of your screen and move it to the left, then you'll get another perspective of your desktop. the sidebar is on the right side of it and put all your shortcuts in a map on your desktop and call it My shortcuts.. now you'll a windows vista supremo, no wee seven needed! it is that easy.
For an easy unit converter that is not a sidebar gaadget try Microsoft's Calculator Plus, works great and handles a lot of conversions.
A very simple, free, powerful, light-weight converter I have used for years and can't recommend highly enough is called Convert.exe, available here http://joshmadison.com/software/convert-for-windows/.
never mind Vista/ use opera browser /magnificent widgets including one giving your metric conversion/ and incorporated webmail / Vista as you indicate will be left with windows 7
