./time/abclock, Analogue Bitmap Clock

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0d, Package name: abclock-1.0d, Maintainer: ryoon

Digital clocks are nice for telling exactly what time it is, but, unlike an
analogue clock, they don't give a spatial representation of time. They don't
show where time is coming from or going to.

On the other hand, a bitmap representation of a mechanical clock doesn't tell
time very accurately if the bitmap is very small. And curves and oblique lines
don't look very nice in a small, low-resolution bitmap.

So, this is something different: an analogue clock that isn't tied to the
design of the mechanical clock, but instead uses the natural properties of
bitmaps: straight lines and rectangles.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for time category

Problems found with mismatching existing digests for:

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.
