Can you read binary ?
Made by my dear collegue Dick Goossens as a PIC programming tutorial project. You can buy a similar clock at www.thinkgeek.com, but this one is much cooler !
I've to build a nice box around it and a power supply. The coolest thing still has to come: use a webcam to show it 'ticking' away !

The guts of my new super fast PC

It's a P4 1.4GHz, on a P4T Asus motherboard Intel 850 chipset, with 256MB Rambus (4 RIMM's of 64MB). The video card is an Asus V6600 Geforce256 32 MB AGP4x (!), I didn't know there are different AGP slots ! AGP 2x cards don't fysically fit in this 'AGP 4x pro' slot ! (see http://www.hardtecs4u.com/reviews/2001/agp4x_e/index2.php for more info). The fan of the V6600 is worn down, I'm now looking for an elcheapo fanless replacement.
