Vista Sidebar Gadget in Production
Is anyone working on a Vista sidebar gadget? I just want to see my total keystrokes, and of course other things - plenty of room for options.

It's not currently possible for a live gadget, only one that's updated every 5 minutes or so.

I haven't heard of anyone working on one, likely for this reason. Live stats may be possible in a new version of WhatPulse - We'll just have to wait and see.

Why is it impossible for when you hit "spawn geek dialog" (which tracks your up-to-date total keycounts, rank, etc etc) that it puts the geek window on the sidebar instead of free-floating? It doesn't sound that hard... but I don't know anything about that sort of thing... Smile

Because there isn't an api to hook into the geek window and would probably make for some awfully fun lag.

The only way is through the local XML file right now (updated every 5 minutes and unchecked by default).

I bug wasted to let me have a go, but ohhh no. ;]

What would be wrong with it updating every 5 minutes?
