in reply to poll ideas quest

I prefer this kind of clock or watch:

  • digital
  • analog
  • analog, circle divided to 24 hours
  • none

Update 2008 sep 6: done: I prefer this kind of clock or watch:.

      "None, I'm always at the PC" doesn't make much sense to me. I'm always at the pc, but even there I can use a digital or analog clock program.

    Hey, ambrus, I've never seen one anywhere before, but I'd love to know if there's a place you can get:  a digital watch which displays a single, timet value -- that would be the ultimate geek possession!  :-)

    • a sundial
    • the neighbours dog, which starts yelping at precisely 5am every morning
    • my mobile phone
    • /bin/date
    • the status line on my screen session, which is given by caption always "%{Yb} %D %Y-%02m-%02d %0c:%s %{k}|%{G} %l %{k}|%{W} %-w%{+u}%n %t%{-u}%+w"
      a sundial

      Ah yes, that's a nice idea. (Some people can tell the time by looking at the sun but I can never read the figures.)

      my mobile phone
      /bin/date
      the status line on my screen session, which is given by caption always "%{Yb} %D %Y-%02m-%02d %0c:%s %{k}|%{G} %l %{k}|%{W} %-w%{+u}%n %t%{-u}%+w"

      I have the same problem with these options as above. These are just digital clocks (except that some mobile phones can also show an analog clock in which case I'd like to know which one yo prefer).

        I'd have to go for digital - analog clocks take up way too much screen real estate :p

        Another one that occurred to me after posting is an hourglass - although inverting it every 60 minutes can get a little tedious ;)
