A beautiful application that takes much trouble to tell you how useless it is! It doesn't tell you the time, just what the time might have been if we were using the traditional Japanese system, no longer used even in Japan.

I rather like having it running, and watching the sun travel overhead...

It doesn't work behind my proxy server in work, so I can only use it at home. And the routine for setting your co-ordinates is a little cumbersome. But it's for nix!
