Everything can not always be serious! The freaking weekend is upon us and I just discovered LBC – LED Binary Clock. It looks awesome on my desktop and takes up less than 5mb of memory. You have 5mb to donate to your own geeky credit don’t you?
This little download makes me think about my binary watch from way back when”¦
Start by browsing on over to:http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/LED-Binary-Clock-Download-15365.html and download the application.
The installer is in German but that doesn’t stop us MakeUseOf users from installing and using this awesome LED Binary Clock! It is not only cool it is also functional.
It includes a alarm so you can remember to go do whatever geeky things you need to do and not get caught up staring blankly at a bunch of blinking LED’s on your screen!
Just hit Installera and it will install. Avbryt is Cancel in case you were wondering! Once you are complete launch it from your start menu or icon and you will see the clock displayed on your desktop like so:
The settings are pretty basic as you can see below buy someone with some time on their hands could seamlessly blend it into their desktop.
And as I said before there is a Alarm setting that can set a audible alert using your own sound files as well as displaying a text message on your screen. You could also use this alarm to shut down your computer. See I knew there were practical uses for this ;)
If you minimize the clock you can get it back by left clicking on the menu icon. The settings can be brought up by right clicking on the menu icon as well.
Go get your geek on and enjoy your weekend! Do you have tips, tricks or would you like to recommend a good free application then put us on! Feel free to email me at karl at makeUseOf dot com
