This Is pretty amazing. Has anybody got a messenger (Live messenger 8.5.1302.1018) gadget that displays online contacts on the sidebar to work ? I use Compact messenger in Vista and that works good. I have tried Compact messenger, Messenger Gadget V4.0 by Eric A. Vera , Live Messenger Gadget by Sakonrat but none of these seem to login/work. Cener Live Messenger Gadget by: ThomasWPleasance does work and show online status but you have to click it to show contacts and you micgth as well click the messenger icon in the systray for the same thing.
