    More additional clocks.

    Hey Vista-Beta testers,

    just filed the following DCR (Design Change Request)

    Additional Clocks in Vista is a GREAT feature.
    But currently you can only configure two clocks. That is by far not enough
    in a globalized world!!
    Leave two as default add a feature to add additional clocks.
    Here are my personal requirements for clocks
    - Tokyo: i'm working together with a department in Tokyo on daily business
    - Seattle: guess why ;-)
    - Chicago: i'm working together with a department in Chicagoon a daily
    business
    - London: my sister lives there
    - Bucarest: my mother in law lives there

    That is five. Either preconfigure to have five (more will make hard to read)
    or give me the chance to add more (up to max. 10).

    Our business need is to be able to add more then 2. Five is sufficient.

    Also let me enter the name of a city instead of choosing the time zone.
    Chicago is what time zone??? How can i know. For some time zones important
    cities are displayed - but espacially for the US this is unknown. Let me add
    my companies sites to the list with the correct time zone.
    This would be a great chance to give Vista a very beautyful dialog!! Enter
    City name and show it on a world map.

    OK, there are three clocks available for a start (you can configure an extra
    two clocks with one unchangeable) - but I do believe that this may well
    change to let you customise clocks better - however even if not, then you
    can keep adding and customising clocks to the Sidebar )

    Just use the Timezone tool that Microsoft already provides for XP:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    or just add multiple clocks to the Vista Sidebar.

    Re: More additional clocks.

    Hey,

    I'd love to try. But Vista tells me (filed a bug for this):
    Validation Not Completed: Invalid Product Key
    [0x80080202]
    And then i do not want to install any additional tools on a brand new OS -
    right? Add it to the stamdard.
    About side bar i realdy posted an answer to the group.

    Why? It's an operating system, not a closed box. It's DESIGNED to run
    additional programs.

    I'll never need more than the two, but if you need 'em, you should have 'em.
    I can see where more clocks will be a plus.
