I'm looking for a large clock program that will fill the compact mac screen. This should run under System 6, and ideally will have clock digits about 2 inches high. It would also be nice to have the display float around a bit to prevent burn-in.

This is going to be used on a compact mac that will be sitting on top of the cross formed by the intersection of four cubicle walls. It

Options that haven't been mentioned yet are Eclipse and BlackWatch. Eclipse is my personal favourite for sentimental reasons and does a very decent job, but I can't remember from the top of my head how well you can customize it - so far for your 2 inch digits. BlackWatch (last version I know of is 1.5.5) adds password protection to the moving clock, no protection against a restart from floppy of course, but sufficient enough to deter the occasional snooper or prankster. The After Dark module mentioned by another poster is pretty customizable but the underlying engine is somewhat picky about system versions IIRC.

To clarify, the After Dark clock module WILL work just great under System 6.x as long as you get a copy of After Dark 2.0. Any later versions require System 7 or higher, I'm afraid. I have After Dark running on my Macintosh Plus with System 6.0.8.
