Lost Time

Lost Time

Blogger's time is six minutes ahead of mine.

By that I mean--in a brand new post the default timestamp at the bottom says 9:06 and my menubar says 9:00--my menubar is synced to, and network latency isn't an issue--syncing with no different. This didn't use to be the case.

Side note: When you type into a browser it times out. Why isn't there something there? Why the fuck doesn't Apple have a nice clean page with just a big, elegant, ajax-rendered clock (synced with their servers of course) running 24/7? Make that an alarm clock. Something pretty much just like this (or this), only Ivefied. Wouldn't that be nice (I mean generous)?

 420 Clocks

Side note: I love that both articles about online clocks I've read lately (Gizmodo, Gizmodo) feature a screencap displaying the time 4:20. I love how often you see it snuck into print (read the ads close on Sundays) or TV (The Simpsons especially). Lost in Translation opens on a clock reading it.

Hi Andy,

Thanks a lot for mentioning my Online Alarm Clock website at

It's always a big help, once I've made a website, when someone mentions it or links to it in their blog.

Thanks again - and cool blog here !
