I proudly showed the design to my 6 years old son, and he was not that impressed. „The hands are not moving!“ he said. Well, that was true, until today — I built a nice new Clock application using said design for the clock face and yes, the hands are moving now, and the clock is ticking gently.
Finally, I got my son being amazed. „How did you do that?“ he asked. I tried to explain it to him, but I guess, he didn’t understand all the bloody details yet. After all, he only wanted to get that clock running on his Mac.
At the end of the day, I said to my son that he need to go to sleep when the hour-pointer hits the 9. At 10 to 9 he said: „Dad, this clock is very useful. It tells me the time.“
Finally, I found somebody who likes my software :-)
