EZClock - A well-behaved memory resident on-screen clock which
automatically disappears when covering potentially
The idea of a clock is to tell the time at a glance, but this should
never come at the expense of productivity.
The problem with most memory resident clocks is that they often get in
the way of the work you are performing. Have you ever wanted to push your
clock aside to read what your application program is trying to display. It
can be quite frustrating. This is most annoying when a top line menu is
covered by your clock. EZClock recognizes when important characters are
attempting to display in the same screen positions as the clock and
automatically removes itself so you can perform your work. Which characters
are important, of course, depends on the software that you use. In general,
if any alphanumeric character (including numbers) is located in the top right
hand corner positions where the clock displays, then the clock will not
appear until the positions contain blank spaces, box characters, or some
other non-readable characters.
To load EZClock into memory (uses slightly more than 3 Kilobytes),

To automatically load EZClock when your system is booted, Place EZCLOCK

TELLING TIME IN AN UNINHIBITING WAY IS ALL THAT EZClock DOES!

The clock will not be readable.
You do not have to pay for this program. Enjoy!
