you know i was thinking, it would be neat if this would be able to have yahoo widgets downloaded onto it

just a thought

you dont have to listen to me

though that goes without saying

Yahoo widgets are not compatible with myBoard engine. A lot of reverse engineering would be required to make them work under myBoard, and I rather use that time adding features to myBoard.

Are the only available magnets the post its and calender? Program rocks!!! How do u add more magnets?

Yep, I've released the myBoard SDK to let developpers create magnets for myBoard, but so far I haven't received any submission ...

Thanks for the quick reply. The program works really fast and i love the look of it. I wish I was a programmer I would help out and make some magnets. Can't wait until more are available. Thanks for putting out the time to make this program.

So yeah, first time poster, semi-long time reader...

Just wanted to say that I've been a fan of Linux for the longest time simply because since I had a PC, I couldn't achieve any of the cool features of OSX except on a Linux PC with Compiz. I've recently discovered the seemingly wide world of Windows modding, much to my delight, and would like to congratulate you on such a freakin' awesome program. I can't wait for full release and I just wanted to give out some props. Good work.

Hi,

myBoard 0.4 is finally available, I didn’t have the time to fix all reported bugs, and add all requested features but I’m working on it.

Change log:

  • New Magnet myGuide, a TV Guide magnet
  • Windows XP support (software rendering sloooooooooow !!!)
  • myBoard is now completely fullscreen (no space at the bottom)
  • When myBoard is activated, pressing the hotkey again brings you back to the desktop
  • Exception Manager added to framework (it was about time !!!)
  • Cannot start multiple instances of myBoard
  • Magnet framework modified to make magnet creation even easier.
  • Magnet drop in magnet explorer bug fixed
  • Other stuffs I don’t remember

myGuide is using XMLTV for programs download. XMLTV is supposed to support the following countries : Australia, Belgium and Luxembourg, Brazil, Argentina, Britain and Ireland, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary and Romania, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, North America, Norway, Portugal, Reunion Island (France), South Africa, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

So far I managed to make it work with these countries: France, UK, Ireland, Argentina, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Italy, Spain. But, when I’ll try to make it work with all of them.

Have fun !

works ok..but rather spending time xmltv it will be nice if you can rather make some additional gadgets.

PS. crashing a lot.

anyways looks promising, thanks for sharing.

I am using it on XP, just realized title mentions it for vista.

can you tell me exactly how and when myBoard crashes ?

I just installed Vista and then I tried myBoard.

I'm still like OMG I expected it not to work that nicely (there's even the widget extending out of the dock animation, and widget flipping), the widgets only have an hard time following the mouse (there is a little latency)

But, you did a great job :)

Good luck for the next versions !

It's really good and is something that i have being looking for a while now but however it seem to take up too much memory and when use i flip, my Board.app appears even when the settings window is hidden. they are some suggestion to improve on but apart from that i say it's better than not having a dashboard for windows.

Very VERY cool program, I have tried several other "widget tools" for windows, and this sure has the potential to beat all of them...

a suggestion/bug

i use a program called "top desk" very similar to expose.

so when my windows tile, there is big black box that says "myboard app" or something like that.

Maybe something to fix in the next version, thanks!
