# pyBCD - 0.42

### Description

Why would you want to use a binary clock?

Because if you use Arabic numerals... then the terrorists have already won. :p

Seriously...

The "binary clock" is a great exercise in programming. When you're already familiar with programming theory, you need something slightly bigger than "hello world."

This is my first published python project. You can import this file to use the get_correct_digit function in your own work. I've licensed it as GPL 3 so I look forward to seeing interesting additions to it (if that ever happens.)

### Changes

--Resizeable window.

--Dynamic sizing and centering.

--Rotate between primary colors with the SPACEBAR.

It's almost complete. The next version will have credits and help... and that will wrap it up--the ultimate binary clock. The only thing better than what I have here would be to make it a screensaver. To that end, I found a python library that will accomplish it. Just need to learn how to use it.

@PyMike: thanks for checking it out. You kept me in python with your PySetup v1.1 code. Props to you are under Release 0.2.

@Paul: Thanks for the rating. As to binary representation of Unix time, I accept your challenge. I'm going to assume that "proper binary"(as oppose to *B*inary *C*oded *D*ecimal :p) means zeros and ones.

I can write it... I can confirm that it's displaying the right sequence... but I doubt I'll ever be able to read it with the speed of BCD or Arabic digits. Even if I could convert it in my head to the decimal seconds, then there's converting it to a human usable format.

It will be fun. :)

Thank you. I'd like to replace my windows clock with a smaller (much smaller) version of my binary clock.

Nice toy! Should add nicely to futuristic games ...
