BIP Desktop Gadget

Kiran, from our dev team has been looking into desktop gadgets for BIP - functionality to let you monitor/submit jobs, servers, etc all from your desktop. As a first effort he has been toying with the Google Desktop gadgets. Have to admit I dont use the gadgets so much but the desktop search has become the most valuable piece of software running on my laptop - awesome - double Ctrl is my new favorite key stroke.


We now have a 'BIP Blog' gadget that you can install on your desktop, yet another way to get the latest and greatest from the blog - its an adaptation of the RSS gadget but useful none the less.


You need to install the latest Google Desktop, http://desktop.google.com/
You can download the gadget here.


Now extract the BIPubNews.gg file from within it and save in a temp location.
Double click on the BIPubNews.gg file to intall it on your Google desktop and you're done.

Tim, You might want to take a look at the newly released NetVibes Cross-Platform Widgets here: http://dev.netvibes.com/ I tried add a couple of them to my NetVibes page and Windows Vista Sidebar and I was amazed that they worked. Tyler
