Heh, now I am going to have to turn the house upside down to find all my forgotten Larson books.  ;D

Jibz obviously knows what I mean, although I wasn't thinking of a birthday type of reminder, though it would be able to be used for such a thing. I suppose it ought to be called a reminder rather than an alarm, though it would work as both. When the alarm is activated, a dialogue pops up with some text that is input when the alarm/reminder is created. For example, I have to take a number of tablets each day, so each reminder could tell me which tablet I need to take. I used to use Atomic Alarm Clock, which is ideal, but doesn't work in Win x64.

Stickies is at http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/  I really feel I should put a good word in for the author as I am now using two of his freeware programs, the other being Zbar which allows a taskbar on a 2nd monitor.

Are there any plans for some sort of popup dialogue for alarms? I have no sound on my computers, so the alarm as it stands is no use to me. It'd be nice not to have to use another program.
That's what the blink option is for, it flashes the clock face when time is up. However if that's not enough of an attention getter, I could consider a system modal message box popup that bounces a bit. (Okay the bouncing may be a bit much, but I was just thinking that Jack Russel Terriers are impossible to ignore...:)). Would that work for you?

I was thinking more along the lines of being able to add a line or three of text that would pop up with each alarm, but I realise that may be beyond the scope of the T-Clock. As it happens, I just discovered "Stickies", another very useful little freeware program, which allows me to do what I need. Coincidentally, there's a setting in that program for the alarm to bounce.  :)

I notice, on my computer at least, that the time and date seems to only use the top half of the taskbar, and if I increase font size, the bottom of the time and date disappears. I seem to remember I had this problem with TclockEX in Vista. I am using Win 7 Ultimate x64 now.
Clock Size & Text Position on the Clock Text Tab are for resizing/moving the clock's position in the taskbar.

Thanks! That's what I was missing. I guess I was more, ahem, tired than I thought last night. :beerchug:
