    Default Sunrise/Sunset Gadget

    Now I no longer need my countdown to the shortest day gadget (and a countdown to the longest would depress me because it means the year is on the way out!)....

    Does anyone know of a gadget or widget etc that shows the sunrise and sunset times in the UK, ideally for my area so I can be really nerdy?

    If you Google "sunrise and sunset" you will get a list of sites that give you worldwide lists of data, some, like this one, you can print off or put it in a spreadsheet:

    I think most diaries supply the information - but you can google for anything.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

    I have a little doobry on my desktop wot tells me info like that.
    I don't know if you can get the same thing for Windows too, but I would imagine so.
    I use Linux.

    You can get the sunrise/sunset times off the BBC weather, just put in your postcode and it will give the local times

    I am certain that the day my boat comes in, I'll be at the airport.
