So I have been playing around with some different options to see how quickly I can throw together a gadget. For fun I gave myself a project:
- A Who Is Gadget
Something I find myself doing from time to time is trying to determine who owns a particular website. So I made this new gadget. Nothing fancy! Check it out and let me know what you think. It should be posted sometime on Tuesday (May 15th).
NOTE: Coming soon, I am culimnating my experiences, tools and websites along with tips and tricks on how to create a gadget. Check back in a week or so – I am still organizing my thoughts around this. Also, if you have any questions yourself about creating a gadget, do not hesitate to contact me.
The Magic Folder Update
Additionally, I am working on an update to The Magic Folder (version 1.3). If anyone does actually read this blog and you might be interested in testing a pre-released version of the update please let me know. I have a four-page test plan that takes me forever to go through and unfortunately it does not always cover unique usage scenarios. If you are a user of the gadget and want to help make it robust (just by running with the beta), let me know. Contact me here. I want to post the update by this Friday – so time if of the essence.
Also, if you like The Magic Folder gadget, please spread the word. Pass the link (http://gallery.live.com/liveItemDetail.aspx?li=0ed6a06a-6782-41a7-b68c-2753fad412a5) to everyone you know that has Windows Vista. Add the link to your blog or get your buddy to add it to their blog. Give me a good rating if you like it (like 5 stars ). But, please keep the downloads pouring in for this gadget.
