Is anyone here interested in writing a Geekzone Gadget for live.com (sample gallery here?

Also, I need some help with Regular Expressions (regex). I have a simple one to create (four or five rules only).

Scroll down for some ideas...

Wooow!

Re: Regex. Go on hit me with it. I'm always up for a challenge. Or am I to late?
You could make it a competition to see who could come up with the most refined expression.
I knew I should have bought that O'Reilly book on mastering Regex. :-)

I needed a very simple expression, but I ended up changing the rules, so no need for the regex at all at the end.

But if you are up to the challenge - write a live.com widget...

Looks interesting.

May have a closer look at it when I get a few other things out of the way.

Ok, now that all the rush for the holiday is gone, I have something to post here about the Geekzone Gadget(s).

I am interested in having some Geekzone Gadgets usable on live.com and on Microsoft Windows Vista Sidebar (when released).

Anything using Geekzone data is ok, but I have a couple of suggestions I would like to see implemented first:

  • A Geekzone Forums Gadget: populate a drop down list based on a XML response containing our forums, and then populate a list based on another XML response with the latest posts based on the selected item on the drop down list;

  • A Geekzone My Forums Gadget: populate a list with the latest posts/replies in discussions where the user has initiated or participated before (this will require user name and password).

  • A Geekzone News Gadget: populate a drop down list based on a XML response containing out categories and subscategories list, and then populate a list based on another XML response with the latest posts based on the selected item on the drop down list;

    These are just some examples - feel free to suggest something you think could be cool and work well with our database...
