Preview: http://celebrusisawesome.smfforfree.com/

Has been tested on Firefox, Epiphany and Opera.

First ensure you have this in your headers:
Code:
<script src="/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

If you have that, proceed. If you don't, add it and return.

Then stick this in your footers:
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
/**
 * Auto-Update the Time
 * http://aetus.net/
 * http://revolutionx.smfforfree3.com/
 *
 *  While there is NO warranty on this script unless you pay me a very large fee,  I will *TRY*
 *  to the best of my ability to help you out.
 *
 *  License: WTFPL (http://sam.zoy.org/wtfpl/)
 *  
 *  Feel free to remove this copyright notice, just visit those two sites listed above.
 *  Thanks for using this script.
 *
 */
function getTimeString() {
  var t = new Date();
  var months = [ 'January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July',
  'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December' ];
  var month = months[t.getMonth()];
  var date = t.getDate();
  var year = t.getFullYear();
  var hour = t.getHours();
  var suffix = "am";
  if (hour >= 12) {
    suffix = "pm";
    hour = (hour == 12) ? "12" : hour - 12;
  }
  if(hour < 10) { hour = "0" + hour; } 
  var minute = t.getMinutes();
  if(minute < 10) { minute = "0" + minute; }
  var second = t.getSeconds();
  if(second < 10) { second = "0" + second; }
  return month + " " + date + ", " + year + ", " + hour + ":" + minute + ":" + second + " " + suffix;
}
function updateTheDate($) {
  var timeString = getTimeString();
  var timeDisplay = $("div.tborder table tbody tr td.titlebg2 span.smalltext:contains(pm)");
  if(timeDisplay.length === 0) {
    timeDisplay = $("div.tborder table tbody tr td.titlebg2 span.smalltext:contains(am)");
  }
  timeDisplay.html(timeString);
}
setInterval("updateTheDate(jQuery)", 1000);
</script>

And voila, you now have a clock that shows the time *right now*, not when the page was loaded. And the time is from the user's computer, so you (and your members) don't have to mess with time offsets.

Weird, this line is supposed to fix that:
    hour = (hour == 0) ? hour - 12 : "12";

That's weird- It wasn't twenty-hour time... It couldn't have been, because it was 4:50 for me. The clock said 12:50 o.O
Let me try the preview again...

EDIT: W00T I didn't even notice- I'm a hero member on RX- Well, I would be if the membergroups weren't changed on here...

It does, but this one makes it in Real Time.  So it will change every second.
