Here's a simple one:
|use stat(x), where x is:
80..85 UTC time: year, month, day, hour, minute, second 90..95 Local time
Go crazy, guys!
:: "24" style real-time clock
At 163 chars, I was gonna say here's another failed #tweetcart attempt, but since Twitter just went crazy with tweet length... :D
No one made a binary clock yet... So I will be the first ;P
This clock is based on the code from an earlier cart, which was itself based on the code at https://maximecb.github.io/Turing-Drawings/. It converts the current time and date to a base-48 number, then creates a Turing machine transition entry for each "digit" in the number in order to draw the patterns you see (48 = 3 symbols * 4 states * 4 directions). There are only enough seconds since 1 AD to fill up the first 7 entries of 12 (the number of seconds is approximately 7 digits in base 48), so the last 5 entries are randomized instead. Every second it changes the rules based on the new current time, and every minute it clears the screen.
