Displaying running time on the web

The question is two fold.

How can I display the time on the web with the display counting in seconds?  If I use the refresh meta command, then the reload generated a log entry each time.  Not wanted!!

Secondly, is it then possible for a small program to change the PC time of the user (with his permission)?

Thanks

To display the time on the web, without using meta refreshes is to use either Javascript (in conjunction with frames or form elements), a full blown Java applet, or via other methods involving VB Script or smaller plugin scripting modules like tcl/tk plugin.

Form more clock applets and scripts than you know what to do with, try:

As for your second question, it may be possible to do something like that using a custom Activex control in Internet Explorer.
