I'm surprised at the debate of providing a clock in the Frame.  See 

I just now put this into Joyride 2515, and got digital clock output 
being shown in the Frame.  [The coding as given by 'Tdang' caused 
the clock to overlay the 2nd-4th icons on the left of the Frame.  I 
don't know python, so I didn't know how to correct this - but it 
should be  8<) "a simple matter of programming".]

If an User can put in a clock, so can the Developers.
