Time tells you the time and date on your desktop.
You may change the location, font, display style, and colors. Time will announce the time on the hour and 1/2 hour with chimes at the 1/4 & 3/4 hour, (if you have the sound files and sound is installed). You may change all options on the configuration window, which you access by right clicking on the running program.
Required Files:
Besides time.exe you need VB5 runtime and Comdlg32.ocx. If you use the Time Voice announce option you need the wav files.
Comdlg32.ocx is included with my plugin, VB5 runtime needs the "vbrun" plugin which can be downloaded here.
 
Some Notes:
There are many different time formats to choose from. When I was testing it, Time did not seem to keep time unless the seconds were showing. Your mileage may vary, but that is what happened to me. I kept the wav files with it since some people have gotten sound working with bart's pe. I did not even try this since I do not know what computer I might be using bart's pe on.


Time can be downloaded from: http://www.hallsted.us/

This plugin runs from the ram disk. The following is from the bart's pe changes.txt file: So all current versions of Bart's PE include a ram disk and it is enabled by default. However, if you use the ram disk a lot, and you find that you are running out of space on it, just use the ramsize plugin. Upon first boot, it allows you to set the size of the ram disk much higher, so you can make more use of it. The popups are infrequent and easily dismissed.
ramsize can be downloaded here.
