Sorry there's a small problem with the flash file in the Until Light swf file seems it's caching the set time.xml and not updating , I've done a small fix but you now have to set the year in the xml file which isn't that big a problem, the download and instructions have been updated.

Love the idea of the gadget, except for the major security vunrability in win gadgets that microsoft has stated they will never fix, as it's not a core feature, and they have moved on to a new operating system. Current advise from microsoft is to totally disable gadgets from windows features in control panel.
Sucks cause I like have HHD available space, and CPU & GPU temp & usage available in a neet package.

Maybe we could make an active tile in Win8.

Cheers,
Rowan

If you are running vixen 3 have a look at the thread about vixen messaging. Geoff has included a text for countdown and in preview it works really well.
