    sidebar gadget or just a program?

    I just hacked together one for my own server ... remove the .zip extension and install and you'll see the status of my server! :)

    Go ahead and tear it apart to see how it works, someone more clever than me could probably create javascript to ping a server and provide text showing a response, etc,... I just used the abyssal legion image since it's free.

    Prefering sidebar ( win 7 )

    Very welcome - thanks.
    Testing and reporting ...

    The gadget only contains 2 files - applying it to sidebar dont works.
    Nothing appears.

    Try this;

    Take the .gadget file and copy it to the following;
    %appdata%\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets
    Then, right-click your desktop and select 'gadgets'; you should see it there. The .gadget file is just a zip file so you can unzip it and put in the location of your own abyssal image.

    I saw a server status plugin in the releases, I'll see if I can't work together something that looks nicer than the Abyssal options and doesn't require them.

    I made a pretty sweet windows 7 gadget that will monitor ANY MC server with "enable-query=true" set in the server.properties file.

    Youtube video

    It works great for me, has a few bugs but i think it really shows promise.
