Progress Bar ClockSun Jan 27, 2013 18:15 (UTC -8)
I’ve also always had an interest in clocks and various ways to represent time, so I was wondering if there was a novel way to show the time and date with the new stuff in HTML5.
I did a token amount of research and didn’t find anything like this, so I snapped up the domain name and made it real: progressbarclock.com. It went live two weeks ago, and although I’m pretty sure no humans have visited it yet, I can’t know for sure because I’m not even keeping logs. It’s just for the lulz, as they say.
The HTML5 progress bar is still pretty new, and support is limited. If you’re not using the latest version of your browser, you probably won’t see anything. I didn’t realize until after publishing the site that Internet Explorer 10 hasn’t officially been released for Windows 7 yet… but that’s not the latest version of Windows either. Upgrade your stuff.
In other news, I finally got around to upgrading WordPress for the first time in, like, two years. I was also able to upgrade most of my plugins, which provide features like subscribing to posts and automatic tweets, but one plugin, Subscribe to Comments, hasn’t been updated since then, so I’m not sure if it still works. If anyone can recommend an alternative that’s being actively updated, I’d appreciate it.
