becky got me the twemco al-30 black flip clock for christmas.

i feel like it completes me. honestly.

the sound it makes is difficult for me to describe. i love it. i think it's especially fantastic next to my computer. i tend to forget about time when i'm really involved on my computer. the flip clock adds a sense of time, so i don't lose myself in my computing endeavors.

right now it is set to flip perfectly on the time.nist.gov minute. (my heart melts at the thought of this.)

i think i'll have to get the qd 35 one day.

p.s. don't forget this review! :)

I tried to convince my old employer to give me their cesium tubes when they "expired".

No joy. Would have been nice to have my own atomic clock.

i don't know. i think it's pretty close. i gave up at some late hour last night. i think i took too much lorazepam last night. i'm having a hard time recalling many of the happenings of the night.

well, I remember spending 18 minutes trying to sync it to your squeezebox. hope it's close, now!

sigh (at the last three posts and the original post)

i still want the qd-35.

available in white or yellow from "revive home."

the series 170 and 1700 clocks are even cooler (weekday spelled out, gigantic). see the mfg site.

do they make noise when they flip? i would love one for my home office environment, but i am worried it would be annoying.

it does, but it's very quiet. i love the faint sound of passing minutes.
