    Help creating custom gadget

    Maybe you can help. I need to create a custom gadget that will do something basic, but might be a little complicated to setup. I work in a small office and wanted to create a sort of custom RSS feed gadget. However I want it to be RSS feeds that I write. The RSS feeds would be company updates like #'s for the day and what not. I would want the employees in the building to be able to see the RSS or News feeds. So I would need a central point in which the gadget pulls the feeds from and also the gadget itself that would display the new feeds. The OS is all windows 7.

    Please let me know if you can assist.

    If, as it appears, you don't want to give your hapless employees genuine feeds from the big wide world but merely send them billets doux from your office RSS is not what you're doing at all. You just need a file you can edit and a file reader that points to it on each machine. Desktop gadgets that read files come by the thousand so it hardly warrants new programming.

    If, on the other hand you do want to provide true RSS feeds then the gadgets already exist in plenty and the knowledge you need to provide them with your own material is stacked to the rafters on the Web. Google is your friend.

    I must say though that I kinda miss the days when people actually spoke to each other in 'small offices', don't you?
