i hate AM and PM. i'm a 24-hour guy. if i could find an analog clock that had a 24-dial for less than $75, i would buy it in a heartbeat.

but for the sake of the rest of the world... the poker tournament i'm hosting tonight starts at 6 pm *not* 8pm. if you show up at 8, you won't be able to be dealt in.

*blinks*

yeah, okay.

edit: and honors to Jerry Orbach. he was a great actor, and as far as i'm concerned, he was a staple to american pop culture. warm thoughts go out to his friends, family, and cast and crew of law and order.

it's legit. i remember checking out that site a while back... i forgot that it existed.

$50 is still a bit pricey for me to be spending on a luxury item as far as i'm concerned. i always have the time with me in the context of my cell phone, which is what stopped me from using my original pocket watch in the first place.

what's even rarer is to find a 24-hour analog *wall* clock. those are more of an antique thing and therefore more pricey.

there are places that sell 24-hour clock parts, so if i'm feeling adventurous, i might buy those at some point and then design my own clock. we'll see.

Re: Out of curiosity
it's a somewhat long explanation. go into my memories section, look at surveys/personality tests/ interviews, and look for the entry labeled something like "my very own survey thing". the explanation is in there.

I did not realize he was the voice of "Lumiere" in "Beauty and The Beast".
I read that they are going to air the episodes of "Trial and Jury", the "Law and Order" spinoff that he had filmed, but they did not say how they will write his character out. I think it should be something heroic, that is what the character "Lenny" deserves.

i have images turned off, and there are too many images on that page for me to load up all at once or one at a time to be worth my effort. can you point more specifically to it? i didn't find anything on there that said "24-hour face"

ah, but see... those are 12-hour faces.

i'm looking for an analog pocket watch that has a 24-hour face. check out the comment below this one between me and yookoso for a link to a page with lots of good pics.

yeah, back when i was first researching the possibility of getting a pocket watch, i saw pete's site. i've actually corresponded with him once or twice via email about it.

again, at this point, i don't know if i want to spend $50+ on a luxury item. it'd be nice, but it's not necessary unless i ever decide to get rid of my cell phone.

but thanks.
