Weekend Gadget Guidance: Put an analog clock in your system tray

If you're like me, you're still using Windows XP but have grown...tired of the digital click in the system tray.

If you're like me, you're still using Windows XP but have grown...tired of the digital click in the system tray.

What's a guy (or gal) gotta do to have a little flair (without upgrading to Vista's big, honking sidebar)?

Enter Analog Clock. It's a teeny little skinnable, Windows tray clock replacement app that puts a round clock in your square toolbar.

Why would you do this? Besides whimsy, analog clocks are actually pretty useful for instant information at-a-glance. Just a peek, and you immediately know roughly what time it is.

Analog Clock is available with several skins that resemble the look and feel of the standard XP visual styles. Skins are tunable, and you can switch on or off some of the interface elements (such as the second hand).

The app is an NTP-enabled application, and will update your system clock time by synchronizing it with atomic clocks through the Internet. It also includes a skinnable quick calendar window, accessible by mousing over the Analog Clock.

Analog Clock is free to download and is compatible with Windows XP and 2000.
