  1. Thanks Gregg! Been lookin’ everywhere for this!
    Along w/ ‘classic shell’ Win 7 is working like a champ.

    Thank you for keeping this amazing little app available.

  2. Most of us old-timers who have used T-Clock since back in ’95 when Kazuban first wrote it, generally agree that the best version ever written was a subsequent one by a fellow who called himself “Stoic Joker.” His has a few features removed, but we all agree that that actually improved it… certainly made it lighter and less resource-intensive.

    His version is also the one which seems to work best in Vista… even 64-bit Vista. I haven’t tested it yet, but it may even work in Windows 7 (and it certainly works in XP and older versions).

    Sadly, Stoic Joker’s web site (from which one would expect to be able to download his version of T-Clock) is down more than it’s up. In fact, lately, it’s down pretty much all the time. Why is unclear. He made a posting in a forum in early 2009 saying he had had some kind of catastrophic system failure as a result of which he lost his most recent code versions… maybe that has something to do with it, I don’t know.

    All I know is that, as a long-time T-Clock user who believes that Stoic Joker’s is the hands-down best version; and as one who is frustrated that it’s so darned hard to find a copy of it anywhere out there, I decided to mount my own “unofficial” T-Clock web page from which the world may download it, and on which I provide some useful configuration information (which people have told me isn’t available anywhere else out there). There’s no advertising on my page, no adware/malware, no gimmicks, no ulterior motives. I’m just trying to help.

    If anyone’s interested…
