     A humourous program which rapidly alters System Time/Date via API to produce amusing effect on Traybar Clock. Settings Fast Forward / Rewind / or Random. Tested only on WinXP, may require administator rights in some OS's. Restoring the correct time/date after using this is your job. Disclaimer - Many portions of the operating system and 3rd party programs rely on system time to function correctly. Setting an invalid Time/Date might even cause computer to reboot. The author is not responsible for any damages that this program may cause. My intention is to demonstrate an amusing effect on Traybar Clock.

  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
