WHAT TIME IS IT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
MARKO NIPPULA'S JAVA POCKET WATCH
by Marko Petri Olavi Nippula

In researching the subject of clocks I found very many clock scripts and Applets
starting with this gem that I stumbled across while searching for "clocks"
and this in turn led me to trying to fathom out how Java Applets work
Have patience on the first loading it will take several seconds to download
but when it has clicked into place I feel sure you will agree that it is worth it
you can even see the minute hand move but not see the grass growing!!
Scroll on down for a load of time presentation ideas
Please position your cursor under item 1
The clock image was made by

The web site page is maintained by Marko P. O. Nippula and was last modified Jul 26 probably 1997?? 00:49.
I think you will find that not all scripts correctly show daylight saving time for some locations in the week
between the clock change from the (Europe) last Sunday in March to the (USA/Canada) first Sunday in April
To be sure check the Summer time link in item 4 below
- starting with a wild combined time and date effect
NOTE:-this will not load until after the pocketwatch above has completed loading
thanks to the Canuck Lightfooot fan Char for sending this to me
