Polar Clock

This innovative clock screensaver from PixelBreaker displays both the time (hours, minutes and seconds) and the date (weekday, day of the month, and month) of the current year in a circular fashion, with each circle representing one division of time. The circles approach their maximum size when the element reaches its maximum, e.g. when the seconds circle arrives at 60, or the weekday is a Sunday, and all circles will be completed at the New Year mark. Many languages are available, and you can optionally customize the clock's appearance, includings its colors, the thickness of the circles, and the font size.

The audio glitches. At least it does in preview mode

It crashes after 1 minute (literally) and messes up you PC. In my case it removes the taskbar and puts my CPU and GPU (i7 -8750H and GTX 1060) under max load within 10 seconds which doesn't make any sense considering were talking about a screensaver, not GeekBench.

Tempus Fugit !
Excellent Screensaver. Almost hypnotic when it kicks in. I could sit and watch it for seconds, minutes, hours, days, months if only I had enough time.... Great to see it all turn briefly blue on the new year.

I've not experienced what Nathan experienced regarding the hanging of 'Explorer' ... But then, I never set my PC to 'hibernate', don't see the point, as my PC is either on and being used, or showing this great clock, when I'm pottering around making tea, other than that, it's powered down.

It's pretty cool, however, whenever the screen saver starts up and then the computer goes to sleep after my specified amount of time, explorer.exe closes. I wrote a batch file to fix this but it is an annoying bug.

@echo off
TASKKILL /IM explorer.exe /f
start explorer.exe
