A friend complained her XP machine was 'acting up' and brave old me said 'no sweat...I'm a consumate genius and modestly can fix it in a jiffy'.

She brung it over me joint and I rolled up the proverbials and got stuck into it.

Well, it's a word in the Library list, but that's not important right now....

What IS important is that it's a great new proggy that is quite versatile...can be a simple analogue clock or a full-featured system monitoring interface....it's all up to you, the skinner.

A vary talented coder by the name of Xymantix [Nicholas] came up with this proggy, and being a skinner as well, made sure it would be a joy to skin....
