Drunken Clock is a clock [duh] that wanders around your screen like it was....DRUNK! And it ticks. It can be translucent, snow covered, or look like itís underwater. I particularly liked the one where the clock wobbled and the 3 hands shimmied.

Your options are sound on or off, enable graphic on clock face and more. You can choose between English, Finnish, Dutch, German, or Russian. You can change the speed of the clock, show snow, and change the background movement style, the clock movement style, and the wobbling style. You can use one of the 3 skins included with the program, download new skins by using the quick and easy button, or develop your own skin-and your copyright will be saved on the annotation of the skin. And you can write your own text message which will run as a ticker, but this function is not available in the shareware version. 

The only thing is that the clock doesnít change modes or skins while running. Each time the screen saver comes on itís different, but what comes up stays till the screen saver goes off and back on. Still though, I though it was a very cute program.
