    WOW.

    Some people need girlfriends or machine shops or credit card bills. They definitely have too much time.

    Some people are just dreamers too thou. Stuck in mundane jobs. Bored to death every day of thier life.

            That's pretty damn clever. If you read the whole article, there was quite a few challenges they had to tackle to do that.

              That's pretty darned clever. All it needs is some external styling work.

              Evan, How about an "analog" version of the digital. A complex optical element which picks up the sun's rays from any angle and generates a bright vertical line on a linear time scale.
