Desktop clock that uses Winamp skins

Just letting you guys know about this, in case you care.

If you hate the sterility and monotony of the windows desktop clock, you can download "Chameleon clock" from:

softshape.com/cham

It's a pretty funky little clock that either replaces the normal one in the taskbar or floats anywhere you want. It automatically finds your winamp skins and can use them for itself - independently of winamp so that you can have one skin on the clock and another on winamp. It uses numbers.bmp, text.bmp, and a bit of main.bmp (I think) for background. It's also got heaps of things like alarms, timers etc. It's shareware, but it only bothers you with a few second splash screen and button press on startup. Pretty cool, as far as clocks go, anyway.

It's not. I've had the program for a while, and I just discovered that it uses winamp skins, which I thought was pretty cool, so I let you guys know as well. Go find yourself a serial no. for it, I don't care.

I posted this in March. Since most of the people here now are different than those in March, and I still think it's kind of cool that a clock can be skinned using numbers.bmp, I've revived the thread.
