Windows 7: Need simple yet advanced timer/alarm clock

Need simple yet advanced timer/alarm clock

Hello,

I am looking for a clock for my desktop, and would like to get some recommendations from other users. I have found nothing specifically for Windows 7, and all of the ones that look good in reviews are only for older OS's. My basic requirements are:
  • That it be aesthetically pleasing - not ugly, but doesn't need to have to have a lot of colors and customizations either, mostly just blue and black.
  • That it has the ability to set both alarms for a specific time of the day, and for a countdown alarm. Perhaps at the most, one of each at the same time (alarm clock and countdown timer).
  • Easy to use and uses a small amount of system resources. Small screen space, so I can have it on top of my other applications without it getting in the way.
  • Option to always "keep on top" of other applications.

Your advice on this is greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help.

~Antonio

DocBrown,

I installed that today, and it is exactly what I was looking for. No muss, no fuss, just a simple clock that does what I want. Thank you so much for the recommendation!
