Welcome to the 21st Century

For today, I would like to show you my latest discovery which is used to manage “time”.  Sure, we all know about the little clock down in the system tray, but I’ve been travelling a lot this year and so having multiple clocks for different time zones has been key.  In fact, until recently, I sacrificed a large chunk of my Vista sidebar to tracking “time”
