Date in Tray

I found a little freeware app the other day, and I love it.

I constantly use the Windows clock to check dates… except it’s not really designed for that (bad UI for date checking) and if you’re not careful, you can end up accidentally changing Window’s internal date.

Crispy Bytes DateInTray solves all of those issues, offering easy navigation and no chance of mucking things up – and it shows the current day right there in your system tray.

    Cool. I have the same problem. I run xp with the 2 user accounts thing, and whenever I need to check the date, the “hover” thing doesn’t work, so I double click on it and it says I don’t have the proper privilege level to change the system time.

    I’ll have to check it out.

    I use a little shareware app called “MenuCalendarClock – iCal” for my Mac. (

    The price is high for a shareware product but it is a sweet piece of software. It’s very customizable and when clicked expands to show the entire month. I can move forward and backward in time to see appointments from iCal. Double click and appointment or to-do list item and it opens iCal. Pretty nifty! So Nick, when you get that Mac make sure you check this out. 😉
