I just have it as a quick launch on my toolbar right next to cloudynights. Can't get much more convenient than that since it only updates every 12 hours or so.

You don't say what your PC operating system is, in Windows 7 and probably other recent versions is a function called "Desktop Gadgets"...

You can use the Windows search function to locate Desktop Gadgets and open it. There you should find the Clear Dark Sky clock and re-enable it to show on your desktop...
