Create a nearly invisible floating analog clock
Authored by: tedw on Dec 20, '09 01:17:10PM

just out of curiosity, what's wrong with using one of the (numerous) analog clock screen savers? Assumedly if you're "at a distance" you're not using your machine directly, so no problem with the screen saver coming on. heck, you could probably even use quartz composer and whip up an analog clock screensaver with a translucent background.

Create a nearly invisible floating analog clock

When I'm teaching in class; the screen saver never comes on, and I'm moving around the classroom. Also, I'm often moving around in the studio, which has the screen savers disabled, and the analog clock is the only one I can see clearly at a glance. But even when I'm sitting with it in my lap, a quick glance at an analog clock is easier than the digital clock. My brain just parses it faster. Plus, I think it's more elegant.
