Where are the Aussie Gadgets for Windows Live ??

Title says it all -- Surely
we can't let the kiwis take the lead
. I was mocked by people today.

Some suggestions, of gadgets I would use.

The Gallery at Microsoft Gadgets has, at current count,
23 pages (339 items) and not a single
Aussie one

Come on Aussie developers!! Where's that Aussie spirit?

Want to get started? The Windows Live
Gadget SDK
available on MicrosoftGadgets.com
contains a Developer's Guide, an API Reference, a design guide, a project
template, samples, a FAQ, a developer;s checklist and links to other resources.

Drop me a note if you are thinking of building a gadget.

  1. Well, I just went to look at the sdk. I setup the samples, went to run them, and live.com is barfing – I’m getting permission denied errors trying to execute some javascript (xmlhttp stuff)

    I’m guessing that it doesn’t support IE7b3 very well.

    Syndication tools such as IE plug in and Windows Live Widget are definitely in our technical roadmap. Are there any benchmarks on potential user bases / adoption of such tools btw frank ? And which of the Microsoft consumer platforms is the most potent ? ie should we be building an IE gnoos plugin first ? or windows live widget ? or something else… (messenger search plugin ?) 🙂 thx frank nice saints win yday. bb

    Make sure you put http://www.live.com and http://www.start.com in your trusted sites list or you wont get anywhere.
