Just for fun, Digital Mars now has a wall clock available with a gorgeous
picture of Mars on it (courtesy of NASA/JPL/Caltech). If you like the CD,
you'll love the clock.

I like the clock, and will probably get it. I had an idea though...

What if the clock's background picture was made up of C/C++/D code that was
just colorized. I mean, suck out a snippet of code from any app, wrap it to
the shape of the picture, then use photoshop to put a layer over the plain
white-on-black text that is mars picture, and then lower the opacity levels.
This would make the mars pic colorize the text. Ah, what about the code
being for the clock functions from time.h? LOL

I'm not sure if anyone else would be nerdy enough to like it though =P

The Maxwell's Equations nerd shirt is the most popular item <g>. But I like the clock the best.
