    I'm not really sure what you mean. This isn't something that goes on your site, correct? Is it some sort of counter for your webage?

    Thanks for reply.

    A ticker same as BBC news which scrolls all headlines from a RSS file on desktop when we install that ...

    Interesting.

    There are several RSS scripts in the DD library, here, but those aren't actual installable addons to your desktop-- just for websites. You could, however, use them as part of an "Active Desktop".

    Beyond that, I don't really have any ideas.

    Google "Desktop widgets" perhapts.

    Hmm...

    This sounds like a PERFECT AIR application. I'm sure there are some of this sort that exist already, though perhaps not exactly this.

    Maybe this weekend, I'll do some experimentation. How much is it worth to ya?

    I knew I had seen something like this before! jvd, have you see this? It's not text only, though. At least based on the screenshots shown. Maybe they let you turn those off.

    A widget would do the trick, if you *really* want something installable. Yahoo has some, and there's another called Avedesk.

    However, I myself would rather make a webpage, add in one of the many RSS scripts here, and set it as my desktop. But that's just me.
    Verzeihung!
