I while ago I developed a Windows Vista Sidebar Gadget for tracking packages shipped using the Norwegian Postal Service, Posten - or Bring as they call themselves these days.

A couple of users (thanks Haakon and Morten) made me aware of that it's not working anymore. I've looked into it and found that Posten has changed the address to the page I'm downloading the tracking data from.

I've now updated it, so it should be working again. It looks like there's a delay for updating gadgets at the Live Gallery, so in the meantime you can download it here.

I recently downloaded your Drive Meter gadget. I have been looking for something like this for some time now. I was wondering if there was a newer version than The reason I am asking is I noticed that it only shows separate meters for physical drives. I have a raid setup that it split into different drives and it lumps them all into one graph. Love the gadget thought!

This comment isn't about this particular gadget but I could not find anything about the gadget I was looking for information about.

First, thanks for the feedback! Really cool to hear back from people using the gadget.

There is a new version in the works, but it has only minor updates and some internal code optimizations. The reason multiple logical drives are grouped together is that I pull the data from the "Physical disk" performance counter, which groups data by physical disk (and a RAID drive appears to the OS as one physical disk). However, it is possible to have it read logical disk performance data instead, but that is currently not supported. It makes sense to add this as an option, so I will look into how this can be done, but cannot promise any ETA for now :-)

I'll let you know if I implement it. The gadget will also notify you if an update is available (it checks if you have the latest version at system startup).

Again, thanks for positive feedback - that's what keeps me going!

Hei! Bruker pakkesporing-gadget'en din hyppig (glimrende liten sak, så takk for den!), men nå ser det ut til at Posten igjen har gjort om pakkesporingssidene, så nå fungerer ikke gadget'en lengre :-(

Pakkesporing miniprogrammet er helt genialt! Eneste som er noe brukanes på skrivebordet, håper du lager en ny versjon.

Ville bare si at jeg har fått med meg tilbakemeldingene og jobber med å oppdatere gadget-en. Har litt mye å gjøre for tiden, så kan ikke love noen ETA :-)

I really your drive meter gadget! One problem: Because I run out of drive letters I delete ones associated with card reader slots I don't use, however, they show up in drive meter with numbers (like 5 or 6) but drive meter won't let me suppress them.

Please see attached screen prints. In the upper right corner I think I said: "Show me C: and J:", but I don't think that's what I'm getting.

Hei, den funker fremdeles ikke.

Du bør kansje vurdere å fjerne den hvis du ikke har tenkt å få den til å virke igjen?

Hi Hans:

Thanks for your Drive Meter gadget.

I was surprised to see activity on my standalone linux disk that has 2 FAT partitions, neither with a drive letter. Using Diskmon, I determined that every 6.56s there were 4 reads to each partition, in the following pattern: (partition relative sector / length) 0/8 0/1 64/4 0/1.

The option to exclude drive letters, seems not to include disk numbers.

Regards, Bill
