I'm a medical transcriptionist, and do all my work online. The transcription services I work for are in different U.S. time zones, and their clients (the private practices and hospitals I actually transcribe for) are all over the country. This is deadline-oriented
work, and keeping track of the time zone changes can get complicated. I'm on the West Coast transcribing for a service in South Carolina that is trying to meet deadlines for clients in all four continental U.S. time zones. I keep saying I need to set up a bank of wall clocks like at the post office or airport, but it occurred to me a while back that a desktop time zone utility in the form of a little toolbar would solve the problem. All it needs to be is a simple program that would allow me to add up to six analog-type clock faces that could each be set to a different time. Since I sometimes work on reports for different clients in the same time zone, I would need to be able to add a text label to each clock.

It's a simple idea, but one that has some potential, especially with so many people telecommuting now.

Thanks for the opportunity to put this out there!
