These are, IMHO, great...
(in case you don't have time, they are all Flash animated clocks)
Yes I am and have been for some time. The requirements are that it be
radio-controlled (from the Rugby NPL signal), it have a digital display
with active numerals (ie not LCD but LED or similar so I can read it in the
dark) and that the digits be at least 6cm high. Maplin have an LCD one on
sale at <GBP>12 but unfortunately, it's LCD and also very ugly.
I'm also looking for a digital LED display zone clock with say 5 zones.
There are some around but they are bespoke and horrendously expensive -
How about a low-end colour-display Palm or iPaq, maybe 2nd-user from eBay,
sitting permanently in its cradle, set to "stay on when in cradle", sync'ing
every so often to a PeeCee or similar which in turn runs NTP to have a
reliable world-agreed time? You'll have the backlight to give you the
active illumination, and a huge variety of free or nearly-so software
clocks to play with, and the sync. Less fun than a "proper" build-yr-own
project, and making the serial or USB cradle lead long enough to connect
up to the PC could be a PITA, but it'd look suitable geeky ;-)
