It is suprisingly easy, and it is the main reason I am sticking with SD despite some other complaints I have about it.

    Anyways, once the next version comes out, I'll look into skinning a clock into it.

    Hmm, I didn't find this to be the case. I fired up the dev mode and it looked pretty complicated (I'm a Network SysAdmin, not a prorammer). Guess I should watch the tutorial again and give it another try.

    In my mind, anything that is not in options/settings, but where you have to enter "dev" mode to tweak, is closer to "coding". Know what I mean?

    Just the same, as I say above, I will give skinning another try. If not, the clock suggestion (and any other user skinable requests) may be best double posted in General as a feature request for devs, in case enough folks request the same, AND in the skinning forum.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    Well, I said it was the easiest. I didn't mean it was easy, just that it is orders of magnitude easier than skinning the other front ends I have tried.

    However, it is not that hard. If you are computer literate (and as a sysadmin, I hope you are!), then once you watch the tutorial, you should have no problems at all. If you do have questions, feel free to ask.

    So, after all this discussion about wanting a clock...how easy it is...has anyone developed a skin or a digimod? There seems to be a lot of posts with people ASKING for a clock option throughout SD, but I haven't seen any posts of them finding what they were looking for.

    you dont need a digitalmod for the clock.. its very straightforward to add to the skin.. by modding the skin...

    but it DOES take up space..

    Thanks, I realize that you dont need a mod, but a mod would allow you to have a cloak without having to give up so much space. Perhaps even a gesture that would display the time. I've never created a skin and wouldn't honestly know where to begin with a digital mod, but if no one has already worked up a solution/alternative then I might take on working up a skin when Christmas break rolls around.

    You don't need to "work up" a skin to display the clock...just make a simple modification to the existing skin. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes...in fact, I would do it for you guys, but I don't have a PC in the house (just my trusty iBook G4) to run the dev mode.

    This seems to be the best of both worlds, access to the clock without always having to go back to the home page without having to give up any space. Just like the way the names of the songs flash in between songs.
