Windows 7: Anyone making custom gadgets?

Anyone making custom gadgets?

Hey everyone out there!

So i just registerede - mainly because i wanted to ask my question, but i might as well stick around too :)

So i was wondering if anyone here knew how to make a homemade gadget?

You see, i've just started "high-school" (I'm danish XD), and my timetable for school is delivered electronically, 'cause it changes from week to week... We have a website, from where we can get it though...
However, i was wondering: How cool would it be to just have it on my desktop as a gadget, so i could check it out with ease??

The system on the site is set up, so that you may view it offline (public), but you'll get your own specific one if you log in on the site, also allowing you to read messages and so... But that's not what i'm talking about XD

So i started looking out some guides and tutorials, but to be honest, i couldn't figure it out at all, even though i'm moderate with a computer XD

So i was wondering if anyone of you could make a gadget, that could read my timetable?? The website is as follows:

- and it's updating itself every sunday, to match the corresponding week...!

So can anyone make such a thingy for me? It doesn't have to be uber-complicated - a simple one (like no colors etc.) would be awesome!

If you have any answers or data you might need to create this, please ask! :)

And sorry for my not-so-good english - i'm still learning XD [BTW, the language of the site is danish, but you may edit it to english if needed!]
