    Cool Time Circuits Desktop "widget"

    Moderators... please move this to the appropriate place if this is not it. I wandered around for 5 minutes trying to figure out where, but here it is.

    Back to the Future FTW!

    I was bored and saw some peeps on here talking about the K.I.T.T. screen as a cool front end. I then thought the Delorean Time Circuits would be much cooler. I accepted, however, that since it resembles a clock and not an interface, then that is what it would only be.. a clock!

    This "widget" is in Flash, and it is embedded in an HTML file which you can put on your active desktop. It is made ideally for a 800X600 carputer resolution. The "Destination Time" is the date on which the Mayan Calendar ends. It's got some type of scientific significance so I thought I'd set that date in commemorance. The "Present Time" of course is the current time in 24-hour mode. All you actionscripters feel free to change it to 12-hour mode and add an AM/PM signal light if you'd like (like the original in the movie). The "Time last departed" is of course the night that Doc Brown took off in order to avoid the lybian nationals. Pressing the screen will give you a memorable sound effect

    I have included the .fla file in the .rar archive for you to download.

    Here's a screen shot:
