    Please do not post the same question elsewhere in the forums (your other post was removed), and in the future please use the code tags to make your code more readable.

    What is the problem/question?

    Cross posted at need help with low priority thread to display time - Java Forums

    This OP appears to want someone to write code for him. It'd be nice if he hired a programmer to help him.

    wondering if anyone knew one call or a how to
    'One call' to what?
    'how to' what?

    What coding problem do you need help with?
    You've posted code without asking a question about it, other than it could be missing some feature.
