Looking for specific Gadget

I've reformatted my system an lost the only gadget I ever liked

I installed it from another site but unable to find it again, it's similar to the multimeter but there are more readings and it came without any need to modify or customize, there are image icons down the left side, CPU, RAM, disk drives etc... with meters by the side and there's even one for the bin that turns red when there's anything in.

It even had a radio button where it would I Imagine lock in to regional radio stations

Anyone help with this

Your welcome. I actually came across it a few weeks ago and put it back on today after my last format. Glad it was the one your were looking for and was able to help.

Thanks its good.
I still have BBC1 as the default (but I wont use any of them anyway because my ISP in Oz streams great stations without counting the download)
and ...
the blue is, well, very "radiant" for me - is there a place to change those settings - presumably its a text file somewhere but I have no idea!

edit: on 2nd thoughts the little drives must be an image somewhere and the bars must have a color somewhere .. straining the brain!
