It is now possible to download a Google desktop gadget that displays the latest AC posts on your desktop. Feed updates every 5 min.

The gadget can be downloaded on
http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/tropicalfish.gg

I am sure there will be a few busg to work out before it works well.

I am planning a similar widget for Mac users soon.

If you use window desktop you just need to download and click the file. You than get a new AC gadget in your sidebar

You need google desktop installed on your computer. If you do, download the file, and run it locally onn your computer. You should than get to see a promt that ask you if you want to add the app.

William, is there any chance of getting one for the Windows 7 sidebar? I just tried it and it doesn't recognize it.

I have plans on making it for Windows XP/ / and mac as well. But one thing at a time. I started with the easiest one to make as I need to learn as I go.

I had it already,was using it for a few days now.
It don't install very well unless you have Mozilla FireFox or another browser tool bar addon, provided my a local internet service provider.I think there are addons for Explorer 7 after upgrading to 8 or 9. It's easy to do.
I could be wrong!

It's called an RSS feed.

I wanted to add that it likely will take a few days before I have any new versions done. I will post a new announcement when I do.

Nah, .gg is not a valid extension and windows wont open this file by default. .gg is google gadget.

When an exe version is available ill be in line to download it XD
