|A dot for every second in the day|
You can use Lots of dots to get a feel for time.
At one dot per second,
Run it as a clock!|
(Any problems? Please let me know.)
hundred seconds (10 x 10 = 100)
about a minute and a half
thousand seconds (10 x 10 x 10 = 10 x 100 = 1000)
about 15 minutes
3600 seconds (60 seconds per minute x 60 minutes)
3 x 1000 plus 6 x 100
ten thousand seconds
almost 3 hours (2 and 3/4 hours)
102 x 102 = 104 (10000 ; ten thousand )
500 minutes (30 thousand seconds; 3 x 104 s; ~8 hrs)
~1500 minutes == 1 day (1440 min; i.e. a -4% error)

The clock needs to "phone home" every few minutes to get a new layout
with the active zone moved. Sorry. Please let me know if this is an issue.
Thanks to a reader's appreciation of `Lots of dots' for prompting this page.
Sometimes there is a gap which isn't colored in for some minutes.
Why is the bottom-right corner of the box not filled in?
Because there are only 60 x 60 x 24 = 86400 seconds in a day,
but the big box is 300 x 300 = 90000 dots.
So 3600 are blank.(4%)
Thanks to a reader for the question.
Talk about (or link to) different kinds of "day".
I'm not sure this background is the right thing. [Removed]
`YEAR Mon SECOND' and `Year SECOND' counters.
% of day. Place 86400 near second counter.
Being able to toggle the color would be neat (black is sleep,
green is practicing guitar, etc). But rather more complex to program.
Perhaps an ephemeral toggle on whether to color?
For browsers that support div, could add time-of-day overlay.
And event markers.
A year-line, dot per day. (uncomfortably long?) Since 1950 stack.
Reverse? Fill up with experience, rather than drain opportunity. :)
