I wear glasses, and my eyesight has slowly been getting worse. As such, it eventually got to be a pretty big hassle to read the time on my alarm clock.

While I was laying in bed one night, having trouble sleeping, I was wondering what time it was, and, after checking, I decided I would do some scripting since I wasn't really going to be sleeping then anyway.

This is simply just a big ASCII art clock that runs in a terminal. I have a server in my bedroom that is typically at a text console, so I figured I would use the monitor to display a large clock that I could easily read from bed without my glasses.

Requires: Perl, ncurses, figlet, figlet-fonts
