    Lightbulb adesklets -> verse of the day on Desktop!

    Hey, for anyone interested. I was playing around with adesklets today, and modified and existing one called news feed to display Bible verses on your desktop from an RSS feed. It is the King James Version, modifying it to display others is rather simple, you will have to visit the website and plug a different rss feed into the config.txt. No guarantees as I'm not a programmer. Works great on my computer. Attached is a screen shot so you can see it in action . If you want the tarball you can get it here. Enjoy! If I could figure out how to manipulate it enough to use the .sword text from GnomeSword, or Bible time, I would, but I don't know that much about what I'm doing. Oh, I renamed it goodnewsfeed instead of the newsfeed it was called. Enjoy.
