Dali Clock is a digital clock. When a digit changes, it "melts" into its new shape. The date is displayed when the mouse is pressed. The window can be made transparent, and can do funky psychedelic color cycling.
It is available for X11, MacOS X, and PalmOS. There is no Windows version, so don't ask.
It can display in 12 or 24 hour modes, and displays the date when a mouse button is held down. It has two large fonts built into it, but it can animate most other fonts that contain all of the digits. It can also do some funky psychedelic colormap cycling, and can use overlay planes or the `shape' extension so that the window is transparent.
In the default configuration, this program is very network-intensive. If it seems sluggish, try the "-memory high" option (see the man page). It will take a little longer to start up, but will then go easy on the bandwidth.
This program was inspired by the Alto/Macintosh programs of the same name, written by Steve Capps some time in the early eighties. This implementation is mine, and if you're looking for another reason to hate the X Windows ``feature'' of network-transparent graphics, well here you go.
What's New in This Release:
· The clock now also works as a dashboard widget on Mac OS.
