This looks nice.

http://eyesore.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

  • Countdown in days until the start of the world cup.
  • You can still use the program once the World Cup has started!
  • Every single participant, all 32 teams.
  • Match Calendar for both single group matches and all group matches.
  • Match reminders an hour before the match starts, enough time to finish what you're doing and get you're seat! Or run down the local pub (What ever you prefer).
  • An hour before the match, you will have a countdown and some match information. In the future there may be an update so you can see the player sheet of who's playing.
  • Auto completion of the team names, can't spell “Trinidad and Tobago” or “Czech Republic”. Then turn on “Auto Complete” and just type the first few letters.
  • Suggestions to save you're valuable time, more shouting at the referee and less typing!
  • Shell icon so you can hide and show the bar whenever you need it!
  • The bar will always stay on top, but it's small enough to not be intrusive. It's also stylish enough that you won't need to hide it, not that you could move it off the side off the screen. It has "off-screen protection".
  • Run the program on start up automatically.



alternate download site if you can't get developer's site to load:

You could try http://www.softpedia...ament-Calendar.shtml

It is an active desktop tool rather than tray tips but seems to do what you want

Sorry got the wrong link try this one ...

http://www.xemico.co...center/worldcup.html

or how about http://www.mp3cdsoft...r-download-22079.htm

or http://fifaworldcup....aya.com/fungames.asp with a news update screen saver here: http://fifaworldcup....oads/avaya_saver.exe

And this looks interesting: http://www.eurodownl...06-Manager-2006.html

and a microsoft soccer scoreboard: http://www.microsoft...86-ad1d-a38e8bfda82f
