Google calendar on desktop?
October 20, 2008 5:45 PM   Subscribe

I would like to overlay my Google Calendar on my desktop wallpaper in Vista. I'd like it to be translucent so that I can still see my wallpaper, but visible enough that it is easy to read. Is there a (preferably free) program that will let me do this?

I tried using Samurize but it didn't really work. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? Are there any other programs like Samurize that will display a Google Calendar on the desktop?

I use Rainlendar (not with Google Calendar), which looks like it can sync with Google Calendar using this. Lifehacker explains.

icalviewer is the (wonderful) solution to this for Mac, in case anyone's interested.

seconding Rainlendar. I use it with Google Calendar and it is really simple to set up.
