Looking for these gadgets

Hi,

Just got Windows 7 on my PC, and am currently looking to spruce up the desktop a bit

I'm looking for the following gadgets from the screenshot below.
a) the weather one at the bottom
b) the date/time one right above the wallpaper Windows 7 logo in the middle
c) the system info one on the right.

Any help as to what they are called and where I can get them would be most appreciated. Thanks.

They're not gadgets, they're from a program called - Rainmeter

Ah thanks. I will look for it.

I take it the desktop wallpaper itself is also part of the program?

I linked you to it in my first post.

The wallpaper in the shot, no. It's just a wallpaper. All the information on the desktop, clock, weather, calender, meter information...yeah. Different rainmeter skins.

Actually, you can get that clock with just a gadget, see my desktop.

HUD Time

Thanks for the link.

However, I've noticed that the time displayed on HUD Time is not synced with the system time displayed on the Taskbar and that in iWeather 2.0, the other gadget that I have that displays the time. It's invariably always 15-40 seconds behind depending on when the PC is booted up. It's as if it starts at the 0th second of the minute instead of whatever second it is at the time of activation.

Any insights on this?

Sorry, no insight, mine changes about a second after the system clock changes. Besides, it's just eye candy, lol. A Guy
