Another gadget for your desktop

Look what you can put on your computers desk top. It's a facebook gadget, and just a couple of minutes after one of your 'friends' makes a comment, puts up a picture or a video you can see it right on your desktop without even logging on to fb no matter what you are doing on your computer. If it sounds interesting you merely click on your friends name and you can see their complete comment, picture or video or you can go onto the real fb if you like directly from here to leave them a comment. I'm looking at it right now as I type this post and I see new comments popping up with the newest comment always on the top.

It's a pretty nifty thing and it's called a Windows Sidebar. You can put whatever gadget you want to display on it. It came with world news, a picture slide show, and Las Vegas weather but I chose to have a clock showing another state's time zone, facebook, a notepad and sometimes I have the local weather at the bottom. You can also hide it if you like and bring it out with a simple click of your mouse anytime you wish. You can also move it anywhere on your desktop.

I really like it and it allows me to keep up with my fb friends even when I'm not logged into fb.

Here's what it looks like on my desktop.
Oh, that Cucoo he's always trying to read my comments. He needs a facebook page of his own and if I ever say anything crazy or off the wall on fb, you can bet your booties that it's not me, but Cucoo.
