Subject description: a fun script
 

Hi
This is a fun script for telling English Time

English Time is
" Quarter past Two "
" half past Four "
" Seven o'clock "

The time will be accurate at the five minute times of a analogue clock
i.e. 5,10,15,20 etc
The in between minutes 6,7,8,9 etc will be rounded to the nearest 5 mins.

You can run the script at the command line to see the resulting time.



I used an instance of conky to put it on the desktop.
conky code:
Code:
TEXT
${font FFF Tusj:size=60}${color orange}${alignc}${execi 30 /root/./english_time}


font downloaded from
http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/40-free-high-quality-hand-drawn-fonts/

Might be useful for people visting England to understand English time

possible changes are endless
"Nine o'clock" could be "tea time"
"Quarter past Eleven" could be "bed time"
