Date & Time - pongClock

Description: This Widget plays Pong against itself. While this sounds useless, there is one reason: The score always displays the current time.

With version 0.3, you are now able to play Pong against the widget. Press the Up-arrow to move the right player upwards, the Down-arrow to move it downwards. You may pause the game any time by pressing any other button.
The speed of the game increases, if you win, and decreases, if you lose. The player who reaches 10 points first wins.

There are a few settings available, plus the widget can check for the latest version. It only does this if you click the "latest?"-button, not by itself.

The widget is powered completely by Javascript and therefore you can run it within Camino, Firefox or maybe even within IE:win (haven`t tested yet). It consumes some CPU-Time, namely about 10% ~ 11% on a 1 GHz G4 PowerBook. Of course, it does not run while the dashboard is hidden and does therefore consume no power then.

I love it. Keep up the creativity.

Awesome update! You fixed almost every problem with it.

One remaining thing though- in the 12 hour time setting, when it's, say, 4:06, the widget will show 4 - 6. If you could change it so the second score has a 0 before it if it's single digit (4 - 06), that would make it easier to read.

I am here to confirm running on windows. It runs under firefox (win) but not IE. actually on ie, nothing shows up.


Great cross platform running.!
