Windows Gadgets (Geek Wisdom Clock)

Do you remember the old days of 'Windows Desktop Gadgets?'

Gadgets were introduced back in 2000's by project "sidebar". A research group, who had developed a way to add things lick a clock, or an RSS reader on your desktop.

Well the other day a fellow team mate of mine showed me a transparent clock he was working on in VB.NET.



And I was like "Whoa! - Cool can I get a copy?"

Well I tweaked it a bit, and wrote a tutorial on how it works on my GitHub Page.

You can read the tutorial here: https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/5249592/Making-a-Transparent-Desktop-Clock and the related GitHub is @ https://github.com/geekwisdom/gwClock. Feel free to make your own gadgets using it.

Or if you prefer to just download the binary release -  https://github.com/geekwisdom/gwClock/releases

Thanks to Chris Wilby for the inspiration and the source!
