Google Gadets....what do you have?

So I just got Vista and I am liking this Google Gadget dock. For those that also use it, what do you have?

I have a local news feed, a retro digital clock, a dictionary and a weather feed.

Only two I use is network meter and CPU Meter

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

I killed that shit off when I paid attention to how many resources it uses.

45% is completely normal for vista, it will use about 2gb on boot.

Completely normal when running Vista with Superfetch, whats the point of having 4GB ram if they stay unused?

wtf 45%....I only turn mine on when I am curious about my cores...and right now I am using 0% cpu usage right now..and only 849ram usage that is which 4 other programs in the back ground running.
