I have been having a play with vista sidebar and the Gadget API. I have posted my gadget, source and a walk brief walkthrough of sidebar gadget as an article here -http://geekswithblogs.net/steveclements/articles/106819.aspx
I actually wrote this gadget about 4 or 5 weeks ago but have just been really busy!
Its been a while since I have blogged, which is mainly down to my new job...settling in, new research etc. means I have had other things to do!
Anyway, the new job is at Bath Spa University working in a small but very talented development team working to totally revolutionise the universities systems both internally and externally. Its a big challenge but they now have the resource make it happen!!
The office is great, nice georgian buliding! See a couple of pics below...if was a pretty dull January day and I was using the camera on my phone - which is nothing special!. They also have a huge lake around the back which doesnt really interest me but apparently a its nice in the summer! Certainly different...I am used to modern open plan offices.
My office is the window under and the to the left (from the outside) of the clock!
First week of the students being around this week! Quite a lot busier in the refectory!!!
