Today I want to proudly present you the first application, that was inspired by this blog:

Andrew Olmsted’s Statusbar Clock

  6. UI/UX note: there needs to be a ‘contact’ place here. I’d like to submit an article I’ve written as a possible one for this blog.

  8. Thanks Andrew;
    Seeing this applet/panel makes me think there’s hope for a combined BT/wireless icon as described a few posts back/
