Add hour markers to the analog menu bar clock

For OS 10.5, the above comment is correct -- you can simply use Preview to save the TIFF as a PDF and it works great. My time machine and clock icons no longer look maddeningly similar and the clock is far easier to read. Thanks Claudio!

Add hour markers to the analog menu bar clock

Obvious to some, but you only need to re-save the clock_base.tif file to clock.pdf with preview. It seems to make the inverted version on its own (as it should). And you can use the GUI as it'll ask you for a password to modify /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Clock.menu/Contents/Resources. (You can use Go to Folder from the Finder's Go menu to get there.) I dragged my original clock.pdf to the desktop, renamed it and dragged it back.

Thanks for reminding me of this. Used it before but I've been lazy and just using the native clock with Leopard. This one is better IMHO.
