A Vista Gadget Funny

It’s Friday, time to go home and one last task to accomplish was the update of this workstation’s ATI Catalyst drivers to the newest version since it started choking on them yesterday.

So, after the update reboot, we must have hit hyper-space, because we ain’t in Kansas anymore Toto:

A blue sun!

BTW, that –5 Celsius is nice to see since it was –25 Celsius yesterday!

Welcome to the Andromeda Galaxy!

Time to go home. Will fix another day. :)

Have a great weekend!

Gasp, thats an awesome gadget.
Seriously; what it called.
Been looking for a good weather gadget, even if it has a blue sun.

It is the default Vista Weather Gadget with a twisted set of ATI drivers that have distorted the colours in the gadget for some sort of odd reason.

The gadget is floating on the desktop too so it shows a little more info than if it was docked in the Sidebar.

Thanks for the comment!
