ClocX - Free, attractive, highly configurable clock software

blog clipart
I recently discovered a very nice clock program. The program is called ClocX and can be obtained at http://clocx.php5.cz/. It is highly configurable in terms of settings, shape, size, and background images. It has several nice options, including my personal favorite "click through", which allows it to be set to stay on top of other windows but lets you interact with the window beneath it as if the clock was not there.


This is the nicest donationware clock program I have ever found and is better than many shareware clock programs.  :Thmbsup:

Hi all. I've been reading RSS feeds for a while and deleted a bunch of feeds today, which, of course, made me wonder what feeds I should add.

So, what RSS feeds are your favorites?

Chasm: Wonderfully Animated Flash Game

This click adventure is very profressionally drawn and animated with tons of personality.  Excellent but tricky.

You cant just solve this by clicking around, you have to figure out the puzzles.

DClock - Always on top, hotkey activated StopWatch

The StopWatch can be accessed from DClock's menu or you can run StopWatch.exe.

The hot-key is Ctrl-Shift-F9.  It will either start it or pause/resume it. You will have to stop and reset from the buttons on the StopWatch window. I can only assign one global hotkey to a window so I felt it was best to pause instead of stop.

You reset by clicking the stop and then the start button again.
