Some of the best Irish gifts are the free ones! I have finally gotten around to finishing the coding for the 2009 version of our Saint Patrick’s Day Countdown Google Gadget. It runs on Google Desktop (which is a lot like the Windows Vista sidebar, only better, and it works on Windows XP). Installing is simple, and it counts down the remaining days, hours, minutes, and seconds until our favorite day!
If you need to install the Google Desktop application, you can get it from Google here. Once done, there is a link at the end of this post for the Saint Patrick’s Day Gadget. Click on the link, save the file to your desktop, and then double-click the saved file.
Right now, the Gadget is with Google to be entered into the Google Gadget Gallery (say that three times quickly). It normally takes a week or two to be included. Once it is there, I’ll post the link and also update the 2008 Countdown page. HOWEVER, if you’d like to download the 2009 Gadget without waiting, it is available at the link below.
