I like 'jakobim' post above:

""
This "app" totally has to be made into a screensaver ... and a digital, landscape clock! Could anybody do this, pretty please!
""

I second this motion..

Yippee, now I’m not alone with my request anymore! ^^
I still think the kindle (touch) needs this kind of clock app / wallpaper / whatever, more than ever.
I would do it myself, if I had the time and patience – mostly time – to do so. I really hope somebody could make this happen.

So what I was working on wasn't working so I thought I might play with this a bit:

attached is just the binary of dclock which is just a simple digital clock with a few options including an alarm if you have sound.

I can run it full screen like this:
Code:
/mnt/us/extensions/dclock/bin# ./dclock -name "L:A_PC:N_O:R_N_application_ID:dclock"
Still to do, wrap it in a script to disable the screensaver or whatever and have it return to the previous orientation. Maybe somebody else wants to do this part? I don't really need a clock... Have fun!

Could you make that available in Klingon script?

Not sure if you can just specify the font on the command line?

Not sure if this is right - It has a KUAL button to start. To stop, you have to press the power button twice - press once and wait until the screensaver kicks in, then again to go back to normal. I stole the stuff from the draw extension that twobob helped with before. If there is a better way to start/stop this, show me! I'd like to see this run as a screensaver also, but I don't know how, so this is about it for me!

EDIT: the screensaver still comes on, I'll have to try to fiddle with it more. If I turn off the screensaver, I can't turn off the clock.

EDIT2: How do you load a TEMPORARY font? I tried the klingon version and I can't get it to load. Major fail. I even used the fc-cache.sh script after I copied it to /var/tmp/root/.fonts/ so I can fc-list it, it just doesn't seem to use it. Oh, well.

IIII ? Really? That's not how you write the 4th Roman numeral.

It really is how you write IIII on a clock. The vast majority of them. For real.
*goes and reads Ixxy's links now*

Hmm yeah my latin teacher maintained the same thing (One Two Three God Five...".
This is the story I heard too.

push anything and it stops the clock. Done unless there are better suggestions?
