I wanted to have a clock in my bedroom and wanted to also have a way of knowing what I needed to do during the day when I get up in the morning. I have been using an old Tcl/Tk program named ical written by Sanjay Ghemawat to manage my appointments, meetings, and todo list. I adapted one of the utilites that comes with ical, along with a simple web server module that is part of SDX to create a simple REST web app to serve calendar items in my ical database. I then devised the idea of using a Raspberry Pi with Adafruit's OLed 128x64 "Bonnet" to implement a network clock. It would normally just display the time, using a software implemented 7-segment display, but will also be able to display my appointments, meetings, and daily todo list, using the joystick on the Bonnet. I also added a speaker so the Raspberry Pi can provide audio "warnings" of things like upcoming meetings and appointments. Robert Heller firstname.lastname@example.org
