"CTcontrol" is much better than "UPtime" IMHO...........

It not only gives you uptime but date, time, stopwatch, and system control functionality that you can lock.
Really cool.

The "Multi Meter" for dual core processors with memory usage is my second favorite.

I was trying to get your opinions on some good downloadable ones. I like the CPU/RAM monitor as well, but I'm searching for a good download.
