BART: Powered By Dali Clock

A local operative reports in with this important information:

It seems BART has some Linux image that they push out to laptops in the station operator booths. They are all running dali clock!

    Long after you are dead and gone, The Eternal DaliClock will still be going strong, pointing the way for the benighted denizens of our future. All programs may evolve until they can read mail, but all computers evolve until they can run DaliClock (or perish in the attempt).

    • Will the Y2K easter egg fire every century?

        BART is closed by Midnight.

        • Not quite true. If you make it into the station by midnight, you can get anywhere, but, for example, the last east bound train through Embarcadero is at 12:26am, and you can enter the station that late, or later (as I'd guess the last west bound train is later), so they do see the roll over. I've caught that train many times (got off work at 12, or a bit later....

          And perhaps by 2100, they will run 24/7. I can dream.

    That's a mighty funny-looking laptop.

    • jwz says:

      The laptop is next to it on the right, and its screen is dark, so I assume the obvious thing. I dunno, I didn't take the picture.

        (Mind you, this mere fact does not detract from the awesomeness.)

    If BART is anything like Stockholm local transit, all the other times on that screen are constantly and undescribably melting into later versions of themselves too.

    Request: A "lazy mode" for Dali Clock, that instead of showing the actual time says "Quarter to six" or "half past nine."
