  • BBC Ticker for Windows

    Posted on October 30th, 2010 Jim 45 comments

    I’ve done a number of “tickers” over the years, some in Javascript, some in Java and I half finished a ticker for Windows in the past.  I’ve spent the last few days writing a brand new one which tries to gel into the BBC’s stuff providing an updated user interface with extras than the older ticker system they had in place.

    This version supports any RSS feed and whilst defaulting to BBC feeds can be extended to support other sites by editing the feeds in the “preferences” option.

    The system is built in C# using .NET 3.5 and is available to download from here:
