Missing poll options

in reply to I prefer this kind of clock or watch:

  • swatch .beat time
  • binary clock
  • counter-clock (runs backwards)
  • % date
  • % perl -e 'print time'
Me, I mostly just use the unix date command (to get the day of the week, mostly) or just check the time on my cell phone. A watch seems fairly pointless to me, given that I live in a place where there's a clock in every subway station, pay phone, or public square.

    100 seconds/minute, 10 minutes/hour, 10 hours/day. It is not as bad as it seems (except if you want to divide the day into thirds)

      Metric time is almost identical to swatch .beat time (the difference is where you put the decimal point).

      You also need to specify which "metric time" you mean: a what place in the world is 00:00:00 the same as "midnight, local time"?

    • % 'date +"%Y%j %a %T %Z"

    I alias that to "fodate", and date +%Y%j to "odate".

    print substr("Just another Perl hacker", 0, -2);
