Binary Clock

OK, this is more of a recreational post than anything else, but with a geek twist.

This morning I took a break and was reading a post on the EDS’ Next Big Thing Blog concerning unintending use of technology and followed a link to the ThinkGeek site. I have not been to the ThinkGeek site in a while so in typical geek fashion I followed a couple of links and landed on the LED Binary Clock page. Another fun idea only geeks will be able to understand.

The only thing I could think of was how much trouble I would be in if I purchased this cool gadget. A clock my wife will not be able to read. Therese already hates it when I give her boolean answers to her boolean questions, so how much trouble would I be in if I start telling her what time it is in binary? Ahhh, the joys of living with a geek. Maybe we should of added the following syntax to our marriage vows: “for geekier days and not so geekier days…” (true – in case you are wondering).

    My brother sent me one about a year ago as a birthday gift. I have it sitting on my desk at the office and once in a while someone will pass by and ask what it is. It’s great fun to have them guess. They are always surprised when I just glance at it and tell them the time. What I don’t tell them is that I cheat (hehe)… the clock is sitting just below my monitor, so I just do a quick glance at the time in the Windows system tray. Binary clock…highly recommended.
