  • I use GeekTool, which lets me run scripts and place the output on the desktop. I have the output of 'cal' in the upper left and the output of a simple Time::Human script in the bottom right. I turn off the menubar time.

    It would be easy to change the displayed timezone. (FWIW, I'm going to move to ProseClock instead of Time::Human, because Time::Human seems to have been abandoned until ActivePerl supports Module::Build. Long story. I should blog it.)
    • Ah, that's fantastic. I'm now running:
      $ cat ~/
      #!/usr/bin/perl -w
      my @parts = localtime(time + (3600 * 5));
      printf "London: %02d:%02d\n", $parts[2], $parts[1];
      Thanks for that!
