I tried biclock.prg (found it here
), but didn't like it.
Way too complicated.
I think using entering the time and date with the number keys is a lot quicker and easier. Being something a lot of people have to do very often it either has to be as easy as possible, or they'll skip it.
Perhaps something like this when the computer boots: Enter today's date: DD-MM-YY
With the cursor flashing at the first "D" or inverting it.
And the user enters 280108 (from the number keys or numeric keypad) and presses return.
Then this pops up: Enter current time: HH-MM-SS
Again, with the cursor flashing at the first "D" or inverting it.
the user enters 180500 (from the number keys or numeric keypad) and presses return.
From then on the clock starts running (and is displayed with the seconds changing) displaying the following:Date : 28-01-2008
RETURN if OK
TAB to change
I suppose two versions should be made: one with the UK way of displaying the date (day-month-year) and one with the USA way of doing it (month-day-year).
PS: I don't know how most people would like this, but using the "LCD" type numbers available in the Atari ST font would be cool for entering/displaying the time.
