When the hour “one” is highlighted, it grabs the comma after December, Highlighting “, one”

…or is that comma always highlighted, separating the month form the hour?

Anyway, fantastic job. I’m using this screensaver as my new desktop.

Oh, and is there any way you could add a gradient background (to make it look more like the photo above)?

Also, the ability to set transparency on the colors would be helpful. I know opacity control shows up in OS X’s color picker, but only for certain applications…

tom Phillipson

donal – it doesn’t help save your screen. tom – screen burn was only an issue years ago when we all had CRT screens. Screensavers are just a vanity thing now and in general don’t perform any useful function.

Cool clock.

Couple of minor niggles, the ‘,’ after the months is highlighted and this just looks wrong to me.

When doing right justified text the previous line jumps about when the highlighting switches from the first term to the second term

Brilliant, stylish and very original idea! The 18 languages means I can have it in French which is great. But (yeah I know: nitpicking and all that), could you add an option for a 24 hours format, or even better, guess it from the system’s locale like you guess the language. Sorry if it’s already been asked for but I didn’t see any mention for it in the previous comments…

Yann

Excellent all around.

How about an option in Languages for a randomly-chosen language each time it starts?

Pat
27 May 2008

70


Sorry, it’s me again. I just noticed that there’s a small problem with the French version. You use the plural of the unit for the zero quantity like in English, while in French 0 and 1 are not using plural form. BTW this is even worse for (at least) Russian and Polish AFAIK. Check gettext doc, that’s where I learned about this. http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/html_node/Plural-forms.html

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments and who has noticed all the errors in translation and the +1 hour bugs… I am slowly working on a number of new translations and should be able to post a corrected version over the weekend. This version also has a random option and you can also set a background image if you want (for gradients or whatever you like).

Simon Heys
27 May 2008

Very nice! A beautiful screensaver. One thing about the Swedish translation: the names of the months are not spelled with a versal in the beginning, i.e. “maj” not “Maj”. Otherwise, it’s perfect!

Apologies if its been mentioned, I wondered about possibly avoiding the screen burn issue by occasionally shifting the clock by a pixel or two every so many seconds.
My plasma does this for TV, shifts by one pixel every 30 seconds I think it is – you don’t notice it unless you’re paying very close attention :)
Excellent screensaver, enjoying it!
Cheers

I’ll second the last comment. You could have it (slowly, or not so slowly) sliding all over the screen, given that the space it occupies is smaller than the real estate. Anyway thank you for this great idea!

Awesome screen saver! makes me want to not let my computer sleep just so i can see it!

Anyways, I have a request that’s a little different.

Is there any way other statistics could be integrated into the free space on the screensaver? Such as a stock ticker, netwrok usage, new mail, something along those lines? I know its different, and I know nothing about coding, but it would be very very cool. Either way, this is my new screensaver.

Beautifully done. Especially appealing to us typography folks. One corrections: your “kerning” slider is actually better stated as “tracking” or “letterspacing”. Kerning is the space between two specific pairs of letters, not the letterspacing as a whole.

Beautiful idea, beautiful implementation, congratulations Simon.

But (there is a but?) – some feature suggestions:

* Add a possibility to save/load the settings – especially the sliders are a bit tricky, if you are not satisfied with your choices, then it’s hard to get back to the orginal settings. Plus it would be cool to get the settings of some cool flickr picture of wordclock

* A free-floating, resizable preview would be a great help for subtle typographical adjustments. The built-in preview is overlapped by the configuration dialog and it is too small, anyway.

* Maybe add a “donate” button to your site for people who would like to show their appreciation.

Very nifty and stylish clock!.
Kudos on the design!!!
How about a rotary version with numbers rotating… Sort of a fixed digital read out but the non-applicable numbers rotating?

Hi Adrian – a version with digits instead of words is easily possible. However the whole point of the clock is to use words rather than digits, and I can’t bring myself to do it!

extremely well done screensaver! Love everything about it.

one thing that would be a nice addition i think would be a “”default” button for all the tabs. but im just nitpicking :)

btw, how did you get the background on the mac one to be a blue/black gradient?

Simon,
OK then… how about an option on the linear text for Star Wars fans?
Text would fly into and fade away to the background as the intro of the movies.
You could make every “chapter” of the text space each other between every minute and you would have 60 lines of text per chapter… just a thought.
Still love the rotary on my screen…
Many Thanks!

Hi Simon,

I love this screensaver, and have been using it for a while. A suggestion, though: it would be great to be able to have user set format for the date and time, rather than just the four or so options you have for each language. I’m not a coder so I have no idea whether that would be easy or not, but it would be great, since my ideal way of seeing the time is not quite the options that are available. That being said, Word Clock is great!!

So, just to test, I downloaded the flash update for Internet Explorer and tadah! the screensaver and settings work.

I have gone through many differnt screensaves but this is the one I have kept the longest. And I plan to keep it going.

But cool idea. Build in some sort of alarm function that you can set. The time that is set will show up on the clock in a different color so you can watch it get closer. Cool, no? I believe it would then be complete.

Is it possible to specify that a is not to be preceded by a space? It would permit to have one word for “seconds” for example with the “s” being highlighted when necessary.

I love the simple design. Makes me want to set up an old laptop to serve just as a clock!

From a functional standpoint, I would suggest the pixel-shifting that others have mentioned.

Also, how about an option to turn off the seconds?

Great work! Cheers!

After using the Word Clock back in 2007 I remembered while talking about word clocks in a pub this week-end… I wanted to show them and looked for it online. To my surprise I found out there was an iPhone version available so I could really show it off to them. Good times.

Now… coming back to my Mac at work and reinstalling it I see that it got turned into a Flash application, immediately apparant from the look of the GUI when opening the screensaver’s options. Rather disappointing. It would’ve been a nice to see it in action again.

I really wish this was a native mac app that works in Snow Leopard.

First of all, on high-res monitors the motion becomes less smooth, even with no other programs running.

Second, typography is only halfway there! For some reasons ligatures do not seem to occur automatically, resulting in some ugly words. Also, the convert to upper case option doesn’t do anything on my computer.

I realize you’re neither motivated nor obligated to redo this screen saver, but it’s just so close to perfection that it pains me to see it fall short.

In any case, great work, and great idea.
