    Their screen savers are available online (service-goodies), the smaller one´s: Ask Bell & Ross, who - btw - is a sponsor of WUS.

    Re: Any recommendation for Windows clock app?

    I used Dimension 4 all the time on my XP machines. Now that I have Vista, it doesn't work. I contacted the authors and they confirmed this; they haven't seem to have decided on whether to come out with a Vista version. I do use the sidebar clock on the desktop, which is pretty neat, but I liked having D4 synchronize the time more often than Windows does (Windows will sync with an atomic clock once per week; I found with D4 that the time can drift on a PC after only a few hours). I'm still looking for a D4 replacement -- if I find one I'll post it.

    If you find a D4 replacement, do please post it, Mike. About the only thing I like about XP on my work PC in preference to my home Vista machine is that XP can run Dimension 4! I had trouble with Chameleon Clock; maybe I should give it another try 6 months on after several Windows auto upgrades.

    Gee this is an old thread.

    Steve, I found something that works with Vista, but it's not exactly like Dimension 4. If you go to www.worldtimeserver.com, they have an application called Atomic Clock Sync 3.0 that displays all of your PC's current clock settings, *and* adds the ability to change how often the system will synchronize with a time server. You still have to use the Windows date and time adjustments to set your time zone, DST, and enter the address of the time server you want to use, but once you've done that you can start this app and change the sync interval to whatever you wish (I've got mine currently set to sync every 30 minutes). I've been running it for the past day or so and it's working just fine.

    Hope that helps.

    Mike

    I grabbed the BR 01 World Time screensaver for my iMac. A guy was having my officemate work on something and asked me why I'd chosen those four cities. I explained there wasn't a choice and that started a discussion about watches, time zones, and time in general that went on for at least 45 minutes. My officemate was pretty distracted.

    Excellent sleuthing, Mike! Thanks very much for that, it might just save me having to spend money on an application.

    Just saw this old post as I did a search to see if anyone else was using one of the cool screensavers I recently found at Bell & Ross. I was interested in having one of the small flash clocks on my desktop, but do not understand the "wrap it in html" instructions. Anyone know how to do this?
