LedHead Everything can not always be serious! The freaking weekend is upon us and I just discovered LBC – LED Binary Clock. It looks awesome on my desktop and takes up less than 5mb of memory. You have 5mb to donate to your own geeky credit don’t you?

This little download makes me think about my binary watch from way back when”¦

Start by browsing on over to:http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/LED-Binary-Clock-Download-15365.html and download the application.

The installer is in German but that doesn’t stop us MakeUseOf users from installing and using this awesome LED Binary Clock! It is not only cool it is also functional.

It includes a alarm so you can remember to go do whatever geeky things you need to do and not get caught up staring blankly at a bunch of blinking LED’s on your screen!

Just hit Installera and it will install. Avbryt is Cancel in case you were wondering! Once you are complete launch it from your start menu or icon and you will see the clock displayed on your desktop like so:

The settings are pretty basic as you can see below buy someone with some time on their hands could seamlessly blend it into their desktop.

And as I said before there is a Alarm setting that can set a audible alert using your own sound files as well as displaying a text message on your screen. You could also use this alarm to shut down your computer. See I knew there were practical uses for this ;)

If you minimize the clock you can get it back by left clicking on the menu icon. The settings can be brought up by right clicking on the menu icon as well.

Go get your geek on and enjoy your weekend! Do you have tips, tricks or would you like to recommend a good free application then put us on! Feel free to email me at karl at makeUseOf dot com

    I am using Xp home sp3 and I can't get it to stay always on top. Even when I do change it to always on top using an external program, it does not stay. It just restores with blurry text, then it minimises to the taskbar for a very short time before it vanishes from there as well. It repeats the process regardless of whether I single or double click its tray icon. It works on the desktop though, when there are no windows behind it.

    Doesn't want to install on Vista. Pops up an error message that i can't read, but I do recognize "Windows Version".

      The following worked on Windows Vista and Windows 10 (1511 update):

      1.) Make sure "install32.exe" is unzipped (not necessary for 10)
      2.) Right-click "install32.exe"
      3.) Select "Properties"
      4.) Go to the "Compatibility" tab
      5.) Check the box for running in compatibility mode
      6.) Select "Windows XP (service pack 2)" in the dropdown-menu that becomes available after step 5.

      Now you can run "install32.exe", no steps are needed for running the clock!

      Sidenote on Windows 10: With the binairy clock running, you'll have an extra tray icon, right-click that to access the settings.
      This took me a while to find out, I have no idea how Vista is on this because I destroyed the VM after seeing whether the application runs there or not.

    The installer language is definitely not German. It's most likely Swedish.

      Yes, it's Swedish.
