Notes from Clif

Bill Webb has found a good way to keep track of time all over the world. He wrote this review for Lockergnome and has allowed it's printing here. The author's website, Pawprint.net, was not available at the time I printed this, so I included an alternate download site above. If anyone is curious where "Coober Pedy" is located, I found that it's in South Australia.

 

Review

If, like me, you’re frequently keeping track of events and correspondents in various parts of the world, a world clock application is just about a must. For the last year or so I’ve been using World Time, “The Ultimate Virtual Timepiece,” according to the Web page. I haven’t had occasion to test any others as complex (and don’t care to), so I can’t say they’re wrong. I like the price: free, free, free.

 

World Time 6 is the latest version. It offers "unlimited configurable clocks, each with its own time zone, configurable Daylight Saving Time, Lat Long, and description in a 12 or 24 hour analog/digital user configurable display, that minimizes to the system tray..." and a whole lot more besides. It takes a bit of fiddling to learn the interface, but it's not all that difficult to set up a nice array of clocks for different cities of the world, plus universal time. If you don't have a program that synchronizes your computer clock with the National Institute of Standards and Technology atomic clock, World Time will do that, too.

 

Minimized, World Clock takes up a hair more than one MB of RAM; about 10 MB when visible. If you need a multiple time zone application, this one is worth a good look.
