     This code is meant to help teach beginners how to make a fast digital clock, I had a great write up for this a few minutes ago but the site said there was bad / inappropriate language in it LOL, there was none of that anywhere in it and now I lost what I had typed previously,, Most tell people to set the timer intervals at 1000, VB6 will lose time at that interval and it will refresh every now and then I set the interval to 250 ti refreshes faster an keeps better time, yes 250 or 1/4 of a second will keep better time than 1000 will

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
