On Vista you get gadgets to add onto the side bar and as i said managed to find a daily update of calvin and hobbes and garfield. i have no idea how you can get one going but the thought just came to me.

I am not completely sure about how exactly Vista sidebars work (yet, that is, new notebook w/ Vista is on way) - but it should not be that hard. I think of an application that downloads a specific image every time it starts - possibly, if you coud store recent comic in specifically named file, say cw.com/archives/recent.jpg, it would also allow you to put in some goodies for users.
