"SkinnableClock" is another one of my 'bloated' programs that I made with
Hollywood 4.7. I hope you enjoy it!

IMPORTANT: This version is a complete remake of the older one (<2.0). So if you
are happily using an older version of Skinnable, please DO NOT delete it (just
rename it or something if you want to try this new one).

The big difference with this new version is the use of compositing for a true
transparency using the clock image alpha-channel; but this only works if
compositing is enabled, and it looks best if used on a 32-bit screen. If you
have compositing turned off in your GUI Prefs, then you need to set the
transparency mode of SkinnableClock (through "GeneralPrefs") to "Fake

Included are seven different clock skins; but feel free to get creative and make
your own (or download and adjust skins from such places as
http://widgets.yahoo.com/gallery/?search=clock). Just make sure to observe the
proper naming scheme: "Face", "Hours", and "Minutes". Additional graphics that
will be used if present include: "Seconds", "HoursShadow", "MinutesShadow",
"SecondsShadow", "Cap", and "Top". All of these various clock parts must be png
images with alpha-channels in order to work.

Check out the "Prefs" in each skin drawer for the various customization
possibilities. Additionally, the basic preferences (size, location, and skin)
can be changed while SkinnableClock is running (just left-click the clock).

*Hint: If you resize while holding F1, then the new width is used and the height
is adjusted proportionately; and if you resize while holding F2, then the new
height is used and the width is adjusted proportionately.

*Special thanks to Mason for the new icons!

Version 2.0 (7/18/10):
*First attempt at recreating this program. The main improvement is the true
transparency for the clock background (requires compositing to be enabled).

*********** If you like this program and would like to drop me some e-mail or
PayPal encouragement (or if you have any suggestions to make this program
better) my e-mail address is: revbloedel()gmail.com.***********
