Desktop clock program?

Asked by blastfamy (2159points) September 3rd, 2008

I don’t use the taskbar (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, look to the bottom of the screen to find a grey/blue/black bar).

I use Object dock instead. Object Dock does not have a clock on it, and I don’t really want a dinky little clock on my dock anyway. The only thing I need is a desktop wallpaper that changes every minute with the time (synchronizing with the system clock).

I realize that this would have to come in the form a delegate program to change the wallpaper. Does anyone know of such a program to change the clock, preferably packaged with appropriate wallpapers for all the times of a digital clock readout?

One way to do it would be to use Active Desktop and embed a Javascript webpage as your background,

something like this .. http://randomibis.com/coolclock/

OK, open up notepad, and paste this in…

<CENTER>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=“JavaScript”>var clocksize=‘500’;</SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT SRC=“http://gheos.net/js/clock.js”></SCRIPT>

save it as clock.html
now open up your desktop settings and set you background to be this file…
