Potential new widget - Some graphic changes to existing help, about and gauge faces, some copying of the code from the Panzer Flip Calendar allows me to create a flip clock. Largely complete, I am now just adding the sound, need to find the appropriate subtle sound that works and does not annoy at the same time.

Fig01. The flip-flop clock on a portion of my desktop.

Fig02. The help screen

Fig03. The about screen

Fig04. The right-click menu

Fig05. Just the clock gauges

Not just a straight copy. It required a lot of changes to the code as each flip flop needs to have its own action. The old calendar flip flop did not require this as it flipped in groups. The code change from group to single fipflop was not simple as each gauge is an object and was quite complex to change.

Harry Whitfield, my partner in crime when it comes to widget-making has converted this widget to a pure HTML and javascript widget. This means that we have a RainWidget version of the Panzer FlipClock that should run well under RainWidgets. All tested and working. Needs some tender love and care and tweaking before release. I feel I need to know RainWidgets before I just dump a widget out there.

You can see it as a web widget here:  

This version incorporates a countdown timer. Note this is our trial version and functionality may change without notice

I created a lot of it with Harry and you'll see a lot of my designs there. Harry and I tend to collaborate on a lot. I create the widget design in Photoshop, I start building the code-base using standard components that we have built over the years. It is RAD Rapid Application Development and I bang out a working widget. Then I hand the working widget to Harry and he takes the code and melds it into a more 'elegant' form. He also tries a lot of tricky things that I would never have attempted. Sometimes they turn out to be too complicated but Harry never lets go of a thing once he has started it. We are in touch bi-hourly I'd say, probably every day, 7 days a week, that has been this way for 7-8 years now. I tell Harry he spends more time with me than he does with his wife.

Marvellouse :)
The latter part sounds like it should come from a book of old electro engineering achievements or something :)

Sounds like your gave yourself a coding challenge ... and won :)
