Chameleon Clock is a desktop clock which purpose is to be useful, user-friendly, and beautiful. It is where the power of both features and interface is combined with simplicity. Chameleon Clock makes a standard Windows tray clock a tiny piece of art by using Winamp skins and bitmap digits. Several skins are included in the distribution as examples; and you can download more from numerous places on the Internet.

Chameleon Clock fully replaces a standard Windows tray clock ! It builds itself right into the taskbar and doesn't eat any desktop space (while can be used as a standalone desktop clock, also). It's Windows Vista compatible and comes with several skins made especially for Vista's dark tray background.

This is a great little clock program if you take the time to learn how to use it. The reminders are already keeping me in line! There are some fun additional free downloads out there for it as well. Many Thanks.

Unfortunately, the developers wouldn't respond to pleas for installation help. Not the best marketing tactics for a 'tempter' at Giveaways.

So I had to search for a registration solution for version 5.1 and I was successful after a few alternatives..

Didn't get a broken Vista desktop in any way here, Tim. What parts?

But I still can't get it running without intervention or registered as a Limited User (Vista) although it's fine as an admin. :-/

I find it a nice configurable Notification Area (System Tray) clock.

Thanks to Fubar and others I have turned off the time-server checking.

I am, however, having trouble with the program being recognised as validly registered when running under a Vista HP Limited User. As an Admin CC IS registered but when I switch to a lesser user account it's not.

Is this another kiddy developer who hasn't come to terms with the great value of running computers by way of restricted accounts? How many decades old is that concept..? No wonder Vista struggles against troglodytes...

I love this software. It has a complete set of features that the regular clock lacks. I don't replace the system tray clock though, since I never actually look there.

It's a perfect tool for home use. It takes up 6MB of RAM when running, that's hardly what I call bloated. I could run quite a few clocks in my 2GB of free RAM.

For you who complain that it doesn't work... Did you even consider the fact that it might be YOUR computer that is crap and not the software when it doesn't work properly? I recommended this download to several people running a wide variety of windows version and none has had any problems running it. Install a PROPER windows installation which is not hacked to oblivion with activation cracks, registry hacks, killing of services, removed virtual memory, hacked system files for custom themes and things like that. You'll notice that most software you've rashly claimed were crap will run just fine.

#97, mike (the number in my post #105 was off because a block of previously unmoderated posts got inserted, after your post first cleared moderation), there were two reasons why I talked about precision time-keeping and Chameleon Clock. Their website has claims about their algorithm's accuracy and using it to meet time-keeping standards for securities transactions. Their algorithm claims don't hold up at all. A lot of very smart people worked on the NTP algorithms for many years. Do you really think some guy who wrote a $30 clock utility has a better algorithm? In fact, their documentation shows that their algorithm is quite primitive. Further, it adjusts the time, not the clock frequency, so precision is poor and it introduces jitter into the system clock, which is a bad thing. Any business which needs accurate timing for securities transactions or other reasons should consider using serious software and hardware. They should run a local NTP server which uses a GPS receiver as the primary reference (unless they don't need great accuracy), with Internet NTP for backup, possibly referencing a well-known or private stratum-1 server, since there are a lot of inaccurate public stratum-1 servers (i.e., they don't meet the specs for stratum-1 servers). The computers on their LANs would run local NTP clients. Documentation could be provided via the NTP logs. And as I stated, these toy clock utilities burden stratum-1 time-servers, which need to be available for stratum-2 time-servers, and are necessary for the proper functioning of the NTP network. You may not care, but people and businesses which depend upon accurate time-keeping do. I've run and monitored NTP clients, and the pools sometimes provide one or two stratum-1 servers at night, but they are almost never available during the day. Serious stratum-2 NTP servers would be running 24/7, so the fact that the stratum-1 servers are much less available during the day proves that a lot of these toy clock applications are burdening the public stratum-1 servers.

While we're talking about time, this provides an opportunity to talk about science, education, and beliefs (briefly). I find that the more people who believe something is true, the less likely it is to be true and correct. The uneducated masses think that physical properties like time, length, and mass are constant. It's been proven that Einstein was correct--those things are all relative. Gravity and acceleration are equivalent. Time on Earth, due to gravity, passes slower relative to time in the microgravity of space. Therefor, the time data from the atomic clocks in GPS satellites have to be constantly adjusted to match the time data from atomic clocks here on Earth.

As for computers and Microsoft, I have a watch which I bought many years ago. It's just a watch, it didn't cost a lot, and it would be inexpensive today. It's radio-synchronized to a fraction of a second. It's solar-powered, so there's nothing to wind, no battery to replace (actually, it does have a battery which technically might require replacement some day, but the solar recharging has kept it going for years). It doesn't crash, and doesn't require firmware updates. It correctly handles changes to daylight-saving definitions, without any updates (that information is carried in the radio data). It has a rubberized, shock-proof case. I can drop it onto concrete, and it will bounce harmlessly. As I recall, it's dive-rated (waterproof). At night, it will light up so that I can read the time, without pressing any buttons.

If Bill Gates is such a genius, and Microsoft's 22,000 programmers are so great, why can't they do anything like that with all the processing power and memory of a modern computer? While it's true that a watch is simpler than a computer, no one at Microsoft could have designed something which performs its function so well, with no maintenance, without crashing, and with such an easy-to-use interface. Windows requires updates for daylight-saving changes. If I can buy a $10 clock which is radio-synchronized to a fraction of a second, why can't I buy a PC with that ability (or an accessory for the same $10 which does that)?

I'm not going to write pages detailing the UI problems, bugs, and lack of features in Microsoft Media Center, but I'll provide just one example. All of my VCR's, going back more than a quarter-century, had variable-speed playback, and could play back audio with the video during fast playback. The first shifted pitch, but the second one on could do that without changing pitch. One would even do that by shortening the pauses between words, so that the individual words didn't sound sped-up. Even my first DVD-player and my first DVR could do that. Again, Bill Gates and Microsoft, with all of their billions and 22,000 programmers, have never been able to do that. Media Center also doesn't have much in the way of slow-motion (just a single, about half-speed, playback).

I'm afraid I must also echo the previous comments given the runtime error I encountered on enabling the wallpaper clock feature under Windows XP SP3. Although the alarm/calendar/desktop clock features are fine, the distinguishing feature that is the wallpaper clock which separates Chameleon Clock from others in its category is resource hungry and buggy in its current implementation.

AAC was a better program. This one won't run shortcuts, only actually .exe's.... which is a problem if you want to have extra parameters included in a program start-up. (which I do, so this will probably get uninstalled and I'll keep looking.)

Beyond this program being awesome- its increadable!

The dunamic [skinned] background can be turned on or off for memory consumption -overall very little memory usage-
The coolest part is the ease of use in creating ALARMS or REMINDERS and being able to put reminders [off-> another 5 minutes, hour, day, week]. It has a real nice built in calander based reminder system. I think this piece of software would be good to come stock with a computer NEW. Every computer.
It also has a neat view that shows the moon cycles each month.

#81, mike, first, all of my clocks and watches, except for my microwave's clock, are radio-synchronized. It's pathetic that a PC which costs substantially more than that stuff can't synchronize as well. As for other equipment, my cable-company DVR is quite accurate, older equipment like DVR's and VCR's may only synchronize within 30 seconds. My land-line phone synchronizes via Caller ID, I haven't checked the precision but it appears fairly accurate. Cell phones are notorious for poor synchronization (it's not the phones, it's the network).

If you have a Media Center PC, then you must not record much. My XP box had multiple analog and digital tuners, which helped, but some recordings required back-to-back use of the same tuner. Most networks are quite accurate, local broadcasts can be sloppy. My Vista PC has multiple digital but only one analog tuner, so the synchronization issue is relevant. You'd be surprised how many shows have important scenes in the first seconds (usually action shows) or relevant comments in the last seconds (usually educational/informative shows). Further, Media Center will generally start recording early (pre-pad), if possible, but often fails to post-pad when it can (at least MCE 2005 often failed to, VMC has very few bug fixes). Speaking of bugs, Media Center has to be the buggiest application Microsoft has ever written. The VMC UI is so bad that it makes the Windows UI look well-designed. Some people may not realize that Microsoft has dabbled in hardware almost as long as it's existed. The Microsoft Media Center remote not only has the worst UI ever, but the latest hardware is extraordinarily unreliable and buggy. It's so bad, I have to completely shield its IR receiver from any light from my LCD monitor, which makes using the remote very awkward.

Logiciel que j'apprécie depuis de longues années déjà. Je ne suis pas intéressé par les nombreux "décors" applicables à l'horloge, mais par contre, Chameleon assortit très avantageusement l'horloge Windaube de fonctions qu'elle n'a pas, elle n'en a aucune ! et sous la même apparence ou presque pour ceux qui le souhaitent :

au passage du curseur sur l'horloge, une fenêtre de calendrier très complète et paramétrable s'ouvre (qui peut être "fixée" n'importe où sur le bureau), très utile pour appeler instantannément un agenda, programmer des alertes uniques ou à répétition, sonores, des rendez-vous, écrire des "post'it", ajuster manuellement ou automatiquement l'heure système sur des serveurs de son choix (si l'on aime pas la mah auto de Win), etc. C'est vraiment plus que pratique sans ouvrir d'autres logiciels importants : qui renoncerait à l'horloge système enbas de l'écran ? Personne, et Chameleon lui donne les 50 qualités qui lui font défaut, sans la plus petite contre partie négative. N'oubliez pas de le franciser, si ce n'est pas le cas par défaut, en téléchargeant le complément de langue sur le site de l'éditeur ; la vf 4.2 fonctionne.

Installed it and one of the free Wallpaper Clocks (thanks for the link, M_hagen) and it's great! I love having a wallpaper on my computer that also shows the time! I hope it doesn't slow things down much because it's exactly what I've been looking for. I have no sense of time, so having a clock on my desktop is very useful....also, have you noticed you can set a chime to ring every hour.

Today's comments are, ummmm, interesting... If you like the looks of this clock then give it a whirl - if not, then don't.

RE: accuracy, seriously, how many folks are doing anything that requires knowing the exact time with more accuracy than probably a minute or so? I don't mean to say that no one ever needs that high a degree of accuracy, but really, I highly doubt they'd even be looking at something like Chameleon Clock, or relying on the clock in the taskbar. Besides, for most of us the time that's important is displayed on the boss's (or spouse's) watch, or the time clock, or whatever. You'll most often lose the argument that you're really not late - they're just too lazy to set their watch.

So what about recording something in MCE or VMC or whatever? One word: "EDIT". Broadcasts don't start on time to the millisecond, & if they did, you've got the lag before it hits your PC. Vista's Media Center by default gives you so many minutes before & after to continue recording - it's adjustable - & almost no movie on cable matches the duration advertised. If you're in a studio, having a very accurate clock signal available for all your equipment to sync to is critical, but at home?...

RE: convenience... in my opinion nothing beats a good ol' fashioned desk or wall clock. And for accuracy clocks &/or watches can check with one of the atomic signals broadcast.

So that all said, again if you like it, say so & grab it - if not, pass it up... I hardly think it's worth long technical dissertations, even if you're bored out of your gourd. ;?P

This program is excellent. The clock is totally skinnable and you can make the background transparent. The alarms are very easy to use.

As for the ability to use the wallpaper clocks, outstanding! They are brilliant. I would buy this program just for that feature alone. The sheer number of available wallpaper clocks means that there is something for everyone.

I have no noticable system slowdown and the clock is only obtrusive if you want it to be.

Well done GOTD. This software is perfect for me. Thank you to you and Softshape.

I really like this program. It is a nice clock program and I would definitely recommend those without a clock type program to give it a try. Now for those that downloaded Atomic Clock. I agree that that was a nice program but I tried Chameleon Clock and I found it also very nice. While most users have reviewed this as an either/or situation I will argue in a different direction. I have decided to use both of these clock programs. Chameleon Clock has the option to hover so I will use it as a hovering clock and Atomic Clock in my task bar. I know some purists will be shaking their heads over my willful neglect of system resources but I like it. That is all that matters. Each user can decide what they want to run on their computer. To me this is a very nice program. Thank you very much GAOTD team. This is a great start to the weekend. Thank you also to the publisher, Softshape. We all greatly appreciate your offering.

This program really should be freeware, and not 30.00, in usual circumstances, but that's not to say it's bad. Quite good, really. I'm just saying it probably should be freeware.
The software operates quite smoothly, (at least on my computer) and is nice to look at.

...Uninstalled. Seemed like a good concept, but it was a bit buggy because it had to inject itself into the systray DLL in memory and ultimately crashed Win Explorer. I've also already got a stand-alone atomic clock checker, which is just as well since Chameleon Clock claimed no internet connection without even trying to connect (as confirmed by my firewall).

Visually, it didn't fit my double-height taskbar, was too bulky, and it didn't show up very well on the light blue background of my "notification area." Yep, I could design my own or choose the floating clock, but I was hoping at least one skin design would be ready to use as-is.

The reminders were quite nice looking, but with the way the rest of it operated I decided it was better to remove it.

Wasn't sure whether to install this because of previous dissatisfaction with digital time programs, but this one has a nice digital look that is easy on the eyes. Installed without problems on Vista 32 bit, have it plugged into Minimem to minimize resources. Of course it eats something but on a relatively modern system should not make a system hit. I for one DO look at the clock from time to time, and I prefer this to the normal Windows clock and calendar.

#5, PC-U. I don't think the problem is with Vista. I think the problem is that it may not have 64-bit support. I have Vista Home Premium, 64-bit and the clock tray skins portion doesn't work. I disabled the wallpaper because I didn't want it.

Quick reference to a calendar is probably very useful for most of us. For those who might have decided not to install today's giveaway, here's (arguably?) an excellent little calendar freebie, which I've personally been using since version 1.0 (1996). The current version is 1.1 (1997) and I guess it might run in Windows 3.1 too :)

Calendar Past, Present, & Future (aka ppf) is just a 17kb download consisting of a single 30Kb executable (it also uses an ini file in windows directory to remember the last used display location). If function is key, rather than bells and whistles, then I really do recommend trying out this little gem - which I continue to use nearly every day. PPF displays a simple 3 month calendar view around the current date. You can scroll backwards and forwards in months, or in years, and double-click anywhere in the display window to return to the present.

PPF was written by Bob Dolan, and sadly seems to have become homeless over the years. But there's still a (rare) download link available at the Pricelessware site here

I suspect you'll either luv it, or hate it...but there's nothing to lose in trying....

@49
A huge number of the vladstudio wallpaer clocks are free downloads, and they are not just the crappy ones - many are very fun, very cute, or there will be a series of a wallpaper in various colors, and one will be free and the others will be not free. Take a few minutes to scroll through - you will find some you like, I hope.

@43
No, I don't sit in front of my monitor all day and 'admire how beautiful it is.' At work, I have to write the date on paperwork a LOT, and look at paperwork with dates for the last 90 days, which throws today's date right out of my head. It is nice to be able to just glance up and see the date without having to zero in on the correct square on my wall calendar, or run my cursor over the taskbar.
Being beautiful and/or fun is just an added bonus.

Does anyone know if vladstudio is the only site with wallpaper clocks for chameleon?

Chameleon Clock has been a longstanding favorite in our household. The VladStudio designs - even the free ones - are great and fun. We share this with everyone we know, too. Except for a single popup when logging in, it's pretty non-intrusive. The girlfriend/wife monthly alarm has saved my bacon more than once!

"Who the hell will want to download, install and use this software except those who are amatuers [sic] and don’t know a thing about computers and computing? We system administrators, software developers, ethical hackers, designers, ect [sic] would not want anything that slows the system down or just a piece of software that makes your taskbar lovelier."

Sheesh -- seems pretty egotistical to presume to speak for everyone or to look down your nose at others' choices of visual design. One of the hats I wear is as a corporate helpdesk tech and system builder/integrator; been using computers since 1978. I happen to like little artistic touches on my desktop and I might go for a better-looking tray clock (I'm not interested in the wallpaper feature which would be overkill for me). If there's not a skin that looks the way I want I'll just make one.

Modern machines have enough memory & processing power and you can always disable the thing when you've got processor-intensive stuff. I don't do everything from the command line or script files and I don't mind a decent graphic user interface.

Great program that I have been using for years. I have been using ver 4 and and did not realize they were up to 5.1 now. Love being able to set quick alarms so I don't forget to pull something out of the oven :) Nice addition to anyones system.

Just another annoying application to suck up resources and provide no real use, I'll pass.

Installed and registered fine on XPPro SP2; very interesting options, however, attempting to acquire additional wallpaper clocks that are listed as "for registered users" fails. Is this a glitch I can correct somehow, and if so, how? If not a glitch, perhaps somewhere in the description there should be mention of the limitation? I for one, based my decision to give chameleon clock a try on the basis of several of the "registered user" desktop clocks, which I believed the "registered copy" info in the HELP > About window would access.
Kudos to GAOTD and Softshape regardless and many thanks!

I am having a *blast* with this and the vladstudio desktop wallpapers!
(@17 and others, thanks for the link!)

Didn't try the atomic one from before, so I can't compare.
Very simple interface, worked great on my XP slow dinosaur work pc.
Looking forward to trying it on my Vista 32 laptop later.
Thanks, GAOTD!
