I love GitHub, but for some reason I’ve been hesitant to put some of my older, smaller projects on there. In hopes of reversing that trend, I’ve moved all my surviving Sidebar and Dashboard widgets onto GitHub: TopProcess XboxLiveGamercardGadget XboxLiveGamercardWidget 360VoiceChallengeGadget I also discovered that Bungie has shut down all their old Halo stuff, so I’ve removed my Bungie Card gadget from my site. Windows Sidebar is officially dead at this point, and Dashboard doesn’t seem long for this world, so I’m unlikely to do anything with these myself, but they’re all open for pull requests, so hopefully if somebody’s still interested in them they can be improved. read more
Windows Sidebar Gadgets
Windows Sidebar is the gadget platform in Windows Vista and Windows 7. It allows you to install small, specialized mini-apps that are always on your desktop. If you use Mac OS, check out my Dashboard Widgets, too.
This simple Sidebar gadget shows the top processes on your system - the processes that are consuming the most CPU, Memory (Working Set), or IO (Bytes Written/Read). By default it shows the top three processes by CPU, but it can be configured to show more or less. Available in English, Italian, Japanese, French and Russian.

Xbox Live Gamercard
This very simple Sidebar gadget just shows an Xbox Live Gamercard. When docked, it scales to fit in the sidebar, and when undocked, it's full size (except in Windows 7, where docking doesn't make sense). More info...Install Xbox Live Gamercard Code at GitHub
This gadget keeps you up to date on your 360Voice.com Challenges. 360Voice challenges let you compete with your friends to see how many Xbox 360 achievement points you can gain in a set period of time. The sidebar gadget shows the current standings, the time left, and the amount of gamerscore that has been earned during the day that hasn't been tallied into the standings yet. Also, when the challenge is over, it displays the results until your next challenge starts.Install 360Voice.com Challenges Code at GitHub
