10.3: Add the date to the menubar clock
Authored by: Blah on Jan 11, '04 01:32:54PM

Well.... I loved what wClock seemed to provide, but it caused instability on my machine (Jaguar 10.2.6 and earlier 10.2.x). I tried to live with it for a few months, but eventually just deleted it.

The app itself would die after a random amount of time. Varied a lot, from as little as a day or two to many days, leaving me with no clock in the menubar at all. But I also had other apps crashing far more than normal as well, and when I removed wClock entirely those problems seemed to go away. No absolute repeatable facts, but was a strong enough correlation for me to want to post a 'be careful' warning here.

It's also possible that a new version has come out in the meantime - I haven't gone back to check after the problems I had, and this was several months ago (maybe as long as a year?)

On the machine that had problems I haven't replaced it with anything, just use the standard system clock, but on my iBook I've been using iClock for a few months and it's been providing a similar feature for me without any issues.
