day of year/week of year script

Here is what I am trying to do. I am looking a way to display on the
desktop, possibly as an embeded webpage, the day of the year and the week of
the year and be able to refresh it without opening a document. For example
May 23, 2005 would be 143(day of year) and 21(week of the year). I have
found formulas for Excel to calculate the values from the computer's calendar
but I have to open the Excel file to have the information refresh. I have
also found a VB script for the current date but I am unable to get the Excel
formula to recognize the information and post the information. Does anyone
have any ideas?? The Excel formula's are :
A2 is where I have the current day displaying.

If you are simply seeking a desktop display of this data there are numerous
apps available for this, many free.
eg PTBSync, google for this and many more

That was helpful. I guess what I forgot to mention is I'm looking for a
script so I don't have to cover or interrupt the regular Windows clock and
calendar. I looked at a few of the programs and they accomplished what I'm
looking for except that they took over the clock and calendar from Windows.

PTBSync has an option to display time on desktop, without
interupting/amending win tray time
Its just a matter of working through configeration to get the result you
