Live.com Analog Clock Gadget

With the launch of Windows Live yesterday, I decided I should try my hand at writing a Gadget (yes, I know Start.com has been doing the Gadget thing for a while, and Live.com is nothing more than a re-branded Start.com). What better than a simple Analog Clock? Thanks to the JavaScript VectorGraphics library folks for an awesome DHTML drawing library.

The Analog Clock Gadget works with both Live.com and Start.com.

To install (cribbed from Microsoft Gadgets' installation instructions):

  1. Copy

    to your clipboard.
  2. On Live.com, select Add Content on the sidebar and then Advanced.
  3. Paste the Gadget URL into the Add a Gadget by URL textbox.
  4. Select the Add button.
