The time format is UTC (all modern UNIX systems are based on this time format). Because my most important time zones are Europe and India aside from the USA, I added India (UTC +5.30) and Germany (UTC +1.00). Central USA is UTC -6.00.

    Unfortunately, I unintentially uninstalled the Windows 7 clock. Is there any way of retrieving it or do I need to reinstall Windows 7?

    HAH – just found this – Very Cool. Shows I need to look around Win7 some more. Built in Windows 2 time zone clocks works perfect for me. My VA’s are all in the Philippines.

    On the Windows Desktop Gadgets though, Windows no longer supports 3rd party Gadgets. Now they are all about APPs for Windows 8.
