Few days back I had posted about the third party Windows 7 Countdown Gadget which can posted on ones blog or site. And I also had put it on my blog. But it could not be put on Windows Live Spaces based blog as it rejects scripts. Now our MVP colleague Vikram Pendse has created a Windows 7 General Availability (GA) Countdown timer based on Silverlight. And the good thing is , it can also be put on Windows Live Spaces based blog. The below image shows as put in my Windows Live based blog LiveViews.
To display this on your blog/spaces/site, just embed the following code-
|<iframe scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="width:158px; height:200px" src="http://silverlight.services.live.com/invoke/75985/NewWin/iframe.html"></iframe>|
For users of Windows Live Spaces, add a ‘Custom HTML ’ module. Sign-in to your Spaces and Customize >Add modules >Custom HTML >Add and type the above code and save.
As you know, Windows 7 General availability is on 22nd Oct. So its that date when it will be available in the Stores. So Count it down along with this nice timer. Thanks Vikram !
