    I noticed in the "Show your Desktop" thread (in off-topic) a bunch of the samples have various dynamic info elements on the desktop like clocks and weather. This got me thinking of some things I would like to clutter up my desktop. I'm not sure where to look for these desktop widget things. Can someone point me at a place to go looking?

    As for what I would like:
    - The usual clock, calendar.
    - Recent e-mail (say top X from, subject, date from inbox)
    - Possibly an RSS/Atom summary feed (to get news and updates to this forum :)
    - List of skype friends that are currently online
    - Settings to include different widgets depending on the days of the week:
    - On weekends get a list of Steam friends list indicating who is online and what they are playing
    - On Thursdays and Fridays, the weather forecast for the weekend
    - Hourly weather forecast for the current day during the day
    - Tomorrow's weather forecast after 4pm

    I'm probably dreaming about things that don't exist and are currently beyond my ability to make.
