This is perhaps a little too niche for some of my readers, but for all you New Zealanders who ride motorbikes (or 200cc Italian scooters!) to and from work, run Vista, and want a handy way to check if you need to wear your wet weather trousers, you may like my first Vista Sidebar Gadget.
It’s a rain radar image that regularly updates itself. You can download it by clicking here, and it should install automatically if you’re running vista.
Sidebar gadgets are pretty interesting little things. Basically cut down web pages, with some special API calls to enable saving and retrieving settings.
If you have problems or questions about the gadget, just fire me a comment here and I’ll get it in my email.
