Looks to be a minute and a half slow to me. Different anyway.

You want it when?

Powered by a zillion rubbers (erasers) and pencils. It gets a bit more behind each time a pencil breaks. :D

They appear to take the time from your computer

That is real cool.
I like them both.

How do you copy such a thing from the web to your harddisk?

For the bottom one, just load the page, and do File-Save As... and save it somwhere. It seems to work for me.

Something that has puzzled me for years, when did peeps start putting that cross stroke on the seven, I notice the zeros also have a stroke across, but its the crossed seven that seems to have crept in here in the UK.
One would have been thrashed mercilessly for doing a seven like that when Drapes was at school. ;)

That saves the page, sure. But I want to save the file intself.
I've now asked the question at the Computer forum.

Thanks anyway RF :)

I think the crossed 7 may be European, where as normal 7 is British. ??

If you open the saved webpage using any text editor, the javascript for the clock is there.

.... and then you can make it into a screen saver....

I think the barred seven is used in Europe to help distinguish it from the number one which has an accentuated upstroke in front of it like this - /| rather than the good old British |. Not very good, I know, but I hope you get the idea.

Incidentally, I gather that the Inland Revenue refuse to handle any tax returns which use the barred seven as apparently it cannot be recognised by their form scanners.
