In these dire times of self quarantining, social distancing, and life as know it coming to a halt, time itself can become rather blurry, and even word clocks may seem unnecessarily precise — especially if you happen to have a more peculiar circadian rhythm. And let’s face it, chances are your usual schedule has become somwehat irrelevant by now, so why bother yourself with dates or an exact time anyway? If you can relate to this, then [mwfisher3] has the perfect clock for you, displaying only the day of the week and a rough estimate of how far that day has progressed.

cool quick project,
I saw something similar but analog version https://dayclocks.com/
Quote: local web site
Implies getting the page over http tcpip
However there’s no mention of setting up apache
I’m guessing that the page is just a HTML file on the local filesystem.
Having set that up, you need to build no hardware, just use an old tablet or PDA that has some method of getting networked. I had a system status monitor page displaying on a WinCE handheld in it’s dock, using IE and it’s built in wifi a few years back.
You don’t need any networking to run it on a device from the local file system as the time is coming from the device via the browser. I’ll try it on android and see.
It works fine on android chrome from a local file.
Nice! Only thing I miss is a display that shows if the stores are open or closed, so I can go and buy food when I need.
Can do better than that. Can sound a loud klaxon then have a loudspeaker demand “Walmart shopper 7x5937z21p report immediately to your assigned location to collect your allotted purchases. ” *bing bong bing* “We’d like to remind our shoppers about next weeks bountiful abundance un-ration-it deal, for agreeing to consume 3 cans of wax beans, you receive 1 roll more bathroom tissue on your next allotment.”
You know squirrels and raccoons are readily available and cats, if cooked correctly can be quite tasty.
You do not want to eat a raccoon. Trust me.
Note to self, plant ghost peppers for raccoon chili…
The upshot is that you won’t be afraid of catching ‘rona if you’re already chock-full of gamey parasites
nothing has changed for me, i still don’t leave the house except to get food, which i buy a month at a time. humans are the real virus.
This is the worst thing about the pandemic imo. Apathetic homebodies getting to rebrand their asocial nature as virtue and being sanctimonious.
I have COPD Emphysema, a chronic inflammatory condition, a compromised immune system and many other medical conditions.
Any flu or virus that can cause pneumoniae can kill me and it’s been that way for years.
I have been doing all the measures of today like hand washing , social distancing and only going into public when absolutely nessesary , for years now.
I’ve had absolutely no empathy or even understanding for how that effects my life.
Now that you risk being in a similar position you feel you have a right to empathy.
Not only that, you sound off at people like us for some perceived brand.
Perhaps you best take a look into your own brand for some clues.
It does sound like your brand is the one that people like me avoid.
I imagine describing the rest of humanity as “the real virus” didn’t really help their cause. More precisely humans as a “vector for disease” would have been more accurate, and less inflammatory.
I don’t know. I think I might need to call BS here ROB. If you truly were confined to your home for medical reasons then by now you would just know what internet comments are like and not take them seriously enough to be offended. :-)
“Apathetic homebodies getting to rebrand their asocial nature as virtue and being sanctimonious.”
Gee, I can’t imagine why after such a warm greeting like that.

Monday:…and I’m still alive!
anyone else hates the fact that this has been made with an rpi? kinda kill a fly with a rocket launcher…
I download the webpage onto my android phone and opened it with chrome.
Works perfectly with no web server or additional hardware.
This. Copy-paste to html file from GitHub – works on everything I’ve tried so far.
