Apr 25, 2000Posted BeatNik Internet Clock 2.0 Beta Build 14. I apologize to all users who had to wait so long for this release! I got seriously sidetracked (read as "derailed") for a while. Expect the MultiLingual Add-on soon! (no, really!)
Jan 27, 2000Posted SSSleeper 1.1.1. Minor update changes tray icon when cursor is in a 'hot corner'.
Jan 24, 2000BeatNik Internet Clock 2.0 Beta Build 14 is very near to release. All but one of the translations is in. It needs a proofing by the translators and it will be posted! Build 14 will now support English, French, German, Dutch, Danish, and Norwegian. If anyone would like to help translate it into other languages please contact me!
 BeatNik bug and workaround in build 13: When using the sounds control panel to select alarm and chime sounds do not choose any sounds that are in the Media folder (the ones that appear to be 'built in' to Windows). You will not get an error if you do, but you will not hear the sound either! Choose a sound anywhere else on your system, or copy the desired sounds from the Media folder (which defaults to c:\Windows\Media) to another folder on your hard drive.
Jan 7, 2000Work on BeatNik Internet Clock 2.0 Beta Build 14 is well underway. Expect multiple language support (at least French)! And it will lose the large splash screen (the largest user request by far).
