Now that it's Power Failure Season again, I'm reminded that I live with too many clocks. Why does every damned thing in my apartment want to know what time it is? "Oh, we need a display here for another reason, let's put a clock on it!
" Gaah. I'm just not that interested in the current time
that everything needs to be telling me! And that aside, things shouldn't have clocks that you can't turn off unless they run NTP
I think I have 6 clocks in here, and only two of them are on purpose.
One of them makes a token effort to get the current time from GPS, but of course in Power Failure Season it's too overcast for that to work properly.
My microwave doesn't even have the decency to sit there blinking -- before it will let you cook anything, it starts counting up from midnight.
