Hour problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I noticed that when using %k to show hours, at midnight the clock shows "%k" instead of "00"
don't know if anybody else got this .
Except for that th adon is very helpful for someone like me ho has the windows "start" task bar hidden, but still would like to have a clock nearby :)

Eats CPU Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice calendar, however the add-on eats CPU on my old win2k system. On the 300mhz box, I get 5% cpu used when showing just a blank firefox window. Each extra window (that's window not tab) opened uses an *additional* 5%. On faster boxes, you'll get lower numbers, but open 10 or 20 windows and you should see firefox start to appear in the task manager even when idle. I verified this also on a 1.4 Ghz system.

If I had to guess, I would say that the update/refresh increase added to version 1.0.82 is causing it.

There are two problems.

First of all, I'm not displaying the seconds in the add-on, I simply use "%a %b %d". If the user doesn't specify %s or %s, then IMHO the add-on should lower the refresh rate to once per minute or so.

Second, even if I display the seconds the CPU usage shouldn't rise with each open window. If the window is minimized or the add-on doesn't have focus then why bother chewing CPU updating a display that isn't being seen?

Would it be possible to have these two issues fixed? Thanks! :-)

Edit positon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good addon, two suggestions

1) Pending: Allow me to prevent the popup as I use it to show the date.

2) On one of my CPU's the second field in the positioning option is zero width so that I can not set the positioning of the display. 2.1) Perhaps you have some suggestion as to how to widen this field. 2.2) Perhaps you have a data file that I could manually edit to change the date display field.

Note: The date is displayed, and so the add-on is still good, but it would be nice to move it to the place that I wanted.

Suggested Change Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I like this extension: it is small, very functional, and provides a nice little calendar, but I have no need to copy a date, in any format, from it.

What I would like, in place of the date picker field, is to enter a short reminder to do something such as 'pay electricty', and have the date in the status bar turn red to notify me that I should check the calander for the reminder.

A small 366 entry X 25 character array would be sufficient. This would greatly increase the utility of this very nice extension.
