Reviews for this release

This gadget, from even back in its version 1.x (Christian Westman's version), has always been excellent... best-of-breed, bugs and all. But Darren Whobrey, with his version 2+ work, has since taken it to a whole new and amazing level. It's so good, now, that the phrase "best-of-breed" barely even covers it anymore. Damn! Now I need a whole new superlative! [grin]

While it's great that this gadget is still being developed (unlike so many that used to be on Microsoft's gadget page) there appears to be an issue with the current release. I've noticed that a resized gadget reverts back to the smallest size when Windows is restarted. Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a PC with 16GB of installed memory.
