I really like knowing the day of the week,date,time. Especially useful when leaving a phone message, it's all just right there if that's the way I set it up, with time down to the second.

I've used it for 10 years. Display date conventionally, but copy in ISO format to time stamp documents. Can't manage without it! Just make sure you install the gen. one. Set-up file is 467,894 bytes.
