Example of excise

With apologies to the author, although it’s a brilliant test exercise in coding functionality, this is a perfect example of excise. It seems stuck in beginner mode: if you don’t know the names of months, how many there are, days in a week, hours in a day, minutes in an hour, so on, or what their names, divisions, and units are might this clock be handy. But people quickly move out of beginner mode: then they just want to know what time it is. No comment as to the aesthetic nature of such a clock though, of course, now that the proof of concept exists, then the mechanics of the thing can now be adapted to other uses, such as perhaps, a flip clock or something else like a Kinetic Sculpture or The Source.
