Plays the Greenwich Time Signal on the hour.

Overview

MacPips does one single thing: it makes your computer play the Greenwich Time Signal (aka 'the pips') at exactly the right time. MacPips uses your computer's clock, so make sure it's set correctly!

The only interaction MacPips has with the user is a Growl message when it launches, so don't be surprised when it doesn't show up in your Dock or Menubar.

Version 1.0.1:

Silly, absolutely useless, but I like it. (Not sure I like the "automatic self updater".)

Does not work, v 1.0 nor v. 1.0.1, all I get is an Applescript write-out and a Growl notification, nothing audible...

Funny. It remember me the radio when I was young. Souvenirs… And useful as I don't want the clock displayed in the menubar.

For the most exact time use The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) servers; http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi
