Easter Eggs:

Clock Overlay: People seem to want even more control over the clock overlay, so the functionality has been enhanced with additional options.  The "/psp/clockoverlay" file has been deprecated, in favor of "/psp/clockoverlay.xml", which is of the form:

<overlay format='%A%n%H:%M:%S' x='10' y='10' width='300' height='100' textsize='32'/>

The "format" attribute uses selectors closely matching the POSIX function strftime() (the default is "%x %r"):

%a - short day name, ie "Mon", "Tue", etc
%A - long day name, ie "Monday", Tuesday", etc
%b - short month name, ie. "Jan", "Feb", etc
%B - long month name, ie. "January", "February", etc
%C - century, ie, "19", "20", etc

%e - day of month, with leading space fill
