As i'm going through my (electronic) x-mas stuff i just found the 'fred' santa claus, a kind of programm, where santa always walks around on your windows desktop. (http://www.ohaha.com/fred/xmas2001/)
Now this made me wondering: Is there any kind of cool programme, that can make some aircraft fly around on your desktop or similiar?
Would be need to see an aircraft fly by on my window(s) every now and then  Smile

Also, I recommend the Star alliance screen saver to everyone, the one which shows you the current position of every star alliance aircraft on the globe.
Can't remember where i downloaded it anymore though... Maybe someone else knows?

What other interesting great widgets are there around? I expect a lot of new widgets once WIn VIsta is out...

www.star_alliance.com and select travel tools. Clcik Screen Saver on the side menu.

But the site is down at the moment for some reason.

Edit - sorry I got the URL wrong. One of these days I must learn to type. embarrassed

You can also download a timetable from the *A site and set it to update automatically. It also updates your screensaver at the same time. Pretty neat.
