Well, what do you mean? If you want a floating box with the analog time inside of it, go to System Preferences->Date and Time->Clock and change 'View In' to 'Window' and 'View As' to 'Analog'.

I really wish you could set it to show the date on the menu.

You can do that, gort. Go to System Preferences->Date and Time->Clock and change 'View In' to 'Menu Bar'.

no it only lets you show the day and time, not date, i.e I want mine to say "Sun 9/12/2004 7:30pm" not just "Sun 7:30pm." Unless I'm missing something, of course.

Ah, you're right. I didn't notice you couldn't do that until you pointed it out . That sucks, sorry, I don't see a way around that. I did find an app, though, http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12763, which looks like it beefs up the clock on the menu bar. Try it and see if you can get the date and stuff with it.

Good luck!

wClock which is free and can be found at www.macupdate.com and www.versiontracker.com does exactly what you are looking for.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.

I remember there used to be a Clock.app included with the OS...I think OS 10.1 had it. It seems to be gone in Panther. Wonder why?

It's been replaced with the instructions a few posts above - it does all the same things the one in 10.1 did.
