Windows XP/Vista trick for a Friday afternoon

This is a neat little trick that takes just a minute but reaps amazing benefits (ok, not really).  It’s how to change the text “AM” or “PM” by your clock to read whatever you want (as long as it’s less than 12 characters).  Like the screenshot below.

Oh, and the article is written for XP, but it works in Vista too, as you might have guessed from the screenshot.

    OK, here’s a downside. Every time you insert the date/time (assuming your d/t stamp includes “AM” or “PM”) you will now get your customized message. Just be sure to change it so you don’t write “I’m a hottie” on the interdepartmental memo.
