Devir has come up with another excellent screencast for us! If you’re tired of changing your background all of the time, a wallpaper clock might be the answer for you. Alternatively, you just may be someone who is forever needing to check the date and time! Again, this would be the perfect desktop wallpaper for your system! This wallpaper is fun – and functional.

Head over to Vladstudio to download. You’ll see versions for both Mac and Windows. The Windows version has a free 30-day trial. The OS X version is actual freeware. Once you’ve downloaded, you’ll be able to browse their huge selection of clocks. You’ll find ones with nearly any color or theme you can think of. Also, if you’re a developer, you can create some of your own. There are already 288 pages full of different designs!

Choose one to download. It will recommend a size for your screen after detecting your resolution. There are sizes compatible with nearly ever size of monitor, up to 30″ ones!

Adding a clock is simple. Once you’ve downloaded the actual program, just choose your design and download that. Click on your downloaded clock file, and it will automatically open in the program. Once the program is open, highlight the wallpaper clock that you want to use at the present time, and click the Apply button. It’s that simple.

Last, but not least, each clock comes with different options, such as adjusting the way time shows up. Choose between standard and military time, different date display options, and more!

The next time you need to know what the date is, just install a wallpaper clock. You will no longer confuse yourself as to what day your brain should be on! (Doesn’t it always feel like Monday?!)

Is it Time for a New Countdown Clock?

If you blinked, you likely missed me starting my new countdown clock. It is that fast, and simple, to create your own countdown clock. You can define your length of time, of course. With Lightning Timer, you simply add a # symbol and the number to the end of the URL (in seconds) to create your countdown.

Let’s say you want to see how high you can count in 90 seconds. Simply type in the URL, then place a #90 at the end of the URL and hit Enter. You will now see a black screen with big white letters that say Start. Click on that Start button, and your timer begins counting down.

There’s no need to register. There’s nothing to click other than the start button. There’s no text to fill in. You can’t even freeze time! You can use this for so many different things, and it’s simple enough for a monkey to do! I did it, didn’t I?
