             AmiClock v1.1 - By Gareth Murfin aka Gaz
             -----------------------------------------

This is a nice little Clock which I coded in Blitz, it has the date on it and
should adapt to your workbench colours nicely so it can sit in the corner and
inform you  of the  time all day long. This   is why I have made  it a BootUp
utility  because it can be started  on every boot and still  not look out  of
place. It has  some extra  features because I  tried to  get the  most out of
using BlitzBasic, they are :-

o Needs NO installation, drag into your WBstartup drawer and its done!
o Says an automated message on innitiation and closure (cool words :)
o Uses Blitz Say and not Commodore, this SHOULD be more realistic :)
o Can be ran simply by double clicking
o Makes rebooting more interesting!
o Now supports Tool Types!
o Works on ALL versions of Workbench and Setpatch *
o Works on ALL Amiga's *
o No Special requirements *²
o Supports the revolutionary $POO command! *³

*  This is TRUE in theory although it has only been tested on :-
   Workbench 3.1 + Amiga International® SetPatch 97 running on my
   A1200Tg 040/25/25/MMU + 18Meg RAM + 2xCD,520HD,


*² Well actually there are very basic requirements, these are :-
   A battery backed up clock (Most Accelerators have these)
   The Translator.lib  (included, simply copy to LIBS:)
   The Narrator.device (included, simply copy to devs:)
   Say (included, simply copy to C:)

*³ Poo is a revolutionary new command like Version. Download it from AmiNet
   or the Alpha URL today!

Right then, install this and then let me know what you think via email
(gazy at globalnet.co.uk) Also look out on AmiNet for my other creations
which are :-

Dwarfx24.lha    - The Ultimate AmIRC enhancement package
Theme040.lha    - An 040 patch for ThemePark
ZombieFest.lha  - A small Zombie Music and Gfx demo
Dwarfdemo.lha   - A small Music and Gfx demo with nice scrolling text

Other Cool Utilities Ive made in Blitz Include :-

AmiClock10a.lha    - A nice Blitz Clock with date
AmiGreet10a.lha    - Greets you on BootUp
AmiBlank10a.lha    - Funky ScreenSaver!
AmiTip10a.lha      - Gives you a Tip every day of the year!

At the moment I have coded in BlitzBasic, Arexx, Dos and Reality, I hope to
learn C++ in the future but right now Im working on a game in BlitzBasic, let me
know if you want to help or you just want details...
