Color Clock - Representing Time As A Hexadecimal Color Value

I came across a post in my Facebook feed today that linked to The Colour Clock by Jack Hughes. It's a pretty neat idea - the current time is translated into a hexadecimal color value and applied to the background of the page. So as the time changes, the background color of the page changes as well.

The only thing is, it's in Flash so if you're on an iOS device, you won't be able to see it. Or if you'd like to pull it up on your web-enabled TV or other device that doesn't have Flash. So I spent my Sunday afternoon porting it over to JavaScript and this is what I have: Can you spot the original?

Will the real Color Clock please stand up?
It's the one on the left.

I've tried to stay true to the original but among other things, my colors are just a little off, most likely because I'm calculating them differently. You can find project details on my site.

Saw this at Tech Square the other day, a Mini Cooper Countryman promo car with an older (classic?) Mini Cooper mounted on top:

Of Red Bull, Dandelions and Portable Toilets: Random Photos

I thought this was pretty funny; looks like someone had one too many energy drinks during finals week!

I’m not sure what these are, could be dandelions or maybe they’re the seeds of some other plant and just look similar. Either way, there were thousands of these floating around last week; enough to cover the grass with a thin layer that looked almost like snow!

I wonder why they needed so many portable toilets (the sign on the side says Pit Stop)
