Editors' Review

Never again be sure of the actual time with this small Flash application, but don't expect it to truly solve your procrastination problems.

Installation opens a small clock on your screen. The displayed time is the true time plus up to 15 minutes. Procrastinator's Clock does nothing but display the altered time. The amount of extra time is carefully weighted so as to never give the user a clue exactly how fast the clock is running. You don't set a thing. You can't set a thing. There isn't even an alarm clock option.

The two speaker icons on either side of the clock did nothing in our testing systems. We figured the icons would be explained in the help file; alas, the publisher didn't include one. This clock doesn't alter your PC time. You can easily check the true time on your taskbar. This application is silly fun for some, and a possible aid for the constantly tardy.

Developer's Description

Use a clock that's anywhere from 0 to 15 minutes fast in order to stay ahead of the game.

The Procrastinator's Clock is guaranteed to be up to 15 minutes fast. However, it also speeds up and slows down in an unpredictable manner so you can't be sure how fast it really is. Technically, the clock maintains a "time buffer" of "fastness" measured in milliseconds. This buffer is modified every second by a certain amount, either adding or subtracting a number of milliseconds. Every once in a while, the delta value changes and the rate of change may increase or decrease. The time buffer is added to the actual time before the display calculations are made. Furthermore, the clock is guaranteed to not be slow, assuming your computer clock is synced with NTP.
