GNOME Internet Time applet Description: ------------ A GNOME panel applet that displays Swatch Internet Time in .beats. Pre-history: ------------ Internet Time was a decimal time concept introduced in 1998 and marketed by the Swatch corporation as an alternative, decimal measure of time. One of the goals was to simplify the way people in different time zones communicate about time, mostly by eliminating time zones altogether. -- Wikipedia Several years ago I used to work for an international research company. This company had people from all over the world. I know from personal experience how hard it is to set up a proper time for a company-wide conference call with many participants living in different time zones. When I first heard about the Internet Time concept, I was hit by the idea of the global common time. As a computer programmer, with binaries in mind, and a person from the part of humanity that uses metric system, I also was ready to adopt the concept of decimal measure of time immediately. Dependancies: ------------- gnome, python, python-gtk2, python-gnome2, python-gnomeapplet, python-gobject Installation: ------------- Debian/Ubuntu users can download a pre-compiles .deb file (fits all platforms). Other Linux flavor users should figure out something appropriate for them. Don't forget to send me a patch once you did. =) Authorship: ----------- Paul Philippov <email@example.com> License: -------- This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Support: --------- Like it?
