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!

Sweet. Once there are some math functions for date/time, this will be awesome.

I might try to port some of my PHP time stuff over but might not be the same thing...hmmm...

You know, stuff like: days_diff(t,n), hours_diff(t,n), add_to_date()...

@enargy: Like a tweetjam, with less tweet and more clock! Deadline: The End of Time!

@morningtoast, might be something useful in here: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=29720

but I doubt it - I pretty much freestyle'd it instead of looking at any established algorithms such as PHP, as you suggested.

### :: "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

(fixed hours)

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.
