With the move across to Windows Vista, I had to (of course) make use of my wonderful sidebar gadget that displays newspaper articles from The Age and Sydney Morning Herald (self-dog-fooding ?)
To my amazement (horror), there was an error message being displayed – for XMLHTTP. Not sure if that’s something that changed with the RTM version of Windows Vista – it wasn’t a problem before (RC2).
Anyway – I had to update/fix the code – turned out to be fairly trivial.
While I was in the mood, I thought I’d do a bit more work on the gadget – and include a “flyout”.
This uses the “Top Ten Articles” – from either The Age or Sydney Morning Herald – in a larger font, and with 10 articles displayed, rather than 5.
NB. The mini-view (sidebar) shows the “Most Viewed Articles” – where as the full (flyout) shows the “Top Ten Articles” – there is a slight difference in the content.
