Clock/Calender in Desktop Background

Hi Guys

Ive seen a few nice desktop backgrounds of late with the time and date incorporated into the desktop background. Theres a few programs Ive found out there some paid and some free which you can download these backgrounds. Anyone here used or is using them has any advice on any of the free ones with plenty of backgrounds to choose from.
I'm a big gadget fan but could do to loose a few off my desktop and this seems an ideal way to get rid of calender and clock gadgets.

Any advice appreciated.

Danny

Hi, there's also this gadget called Custom Calendar. It looks like the built-in calendar gadget but you have the ability to customize the font style, text and color as well as customize the color of the Custom Calendar background and you can even browse a picture and make it as the background of the Custom Calendar gadget. You can get it for free on this website:

Clock on the desktop
Is there any way to get a small digital clock, like the one in the taskbar appearing on the desktop? IF you are thinking why, it's because i'm trying to use rocket dock, then hide my taskbar. But digital clock docklets are rubbish! So I'd rather have it in the corner of my dekstop instead. ...
