Valentine Clock 1.3
Your honeybun will always think of you while gazing at their very own valentine clock. This Windows applet that displays a clock in the shape of a heart with cupid’s arrow shot through it. The program takes up next to nothing in disk space, but the display only updates every five minutes. The version I downloaded had a readme document that stated that my version was out of date, and I should contact the shareware author. If your valentine only needs a rough idea of the time, this clock might do the trick.
