    I like the concept of widgets, but I haven't really used them much. I'd much prefer to be able to open widgets in-game so I don't have to switch windows.

    I would love to use them, But every time I have had a look at them they don't work. Looked again just now and they still don't work.

    CCSim, I'm not very familiar with them, so I wouldn't be able to give an accurate or detailed description, but you can get an idea about what they are here.

    Yeah, I hate using widgets because they're all over the place. But they're pretty cool - sometimes.

    What I think would be REALLY cool is if someone could program some of these widgets as Vista Sidebar Gadgets! [​IMG]

    Is it more clear, now?

    My technical explanation is - it's a doohickey (a miniprogram, an applet, etc.) that you can put on your homepage or blog/myspace or sometimes your desktop or whatever and it's no big deal to do and you can take it off whenever - and it can provide real time information or games or tools or time-wasters, etc.

    Have I mentioned today how much I love Thrill's Guest Motive gadget?
    I tell the hosts of every packed house I go to about it. It is a host's dream.

    It works through iGoogle. Here is a screenshot from the Wikipedia of it in action:

    This I want! Where do I get it?! lol

    I never heard about widgets either before this, but the need thingie, I sure can use that in my house. Or is this all an idea and it doesnt work yet?

    This is a real thing and it really works - no waiting around [​IMG]

    Thrill's gadget works through iGoogle. iGoogle is just a customizeable page run by Google - to access it you either use or sign up for a gmail handle.

    Here is the link to iGoogle: iGoogle

    And here is the link to Thrill's gadget: click me to go the wiki page with gadgets/widgets

    Once you have signed up for an iGoogle account, go to the wiki link where Thrill's gadget lives and look for the little "+Google" symbol underneath the picture of it. Clicking that will add it to your iGoogle homepage.

    Aster I agree, this is a hosts dream! I have seen this on the wiki before, but wasn't quite sure how to use it. I do have a gmail account so setting up an iGoogle page was a breeze [​IMG] I use this lil piece of wonder every day now, makes it very easy to see when to cook for our visitors [​IMG] Thanks for 'kicking' me off on this when we met in game!

    I recommend this widget to every host. No more singing to people with full energy/social, or wasting food when nobody's hungry [​IMG]
