A time utility that runs inside the Deskbar

webwatch-1.0~git-4-x86_64

WebWatch is an unofficial port of Swatch's Internet Time utility that runs inside the Deskbar.

Someone at Swatch (you know, the company that makes the watches) came up with an idea for a universal time format that eliminates time zones and geographical borders. The idea is very simple: time is no longer measured in hours, minutes, and seconds, but in "beats." A single day consists of 1000 beats, so each beat corresponds to 1 minute and 26.4 seconds.
This "Internet Time" is the same all over the world, because it is measured relatively to something called the Biel Mean Time (BMT), a new meridian that lies in Switzerland. A day in Internet Time begins at midnight BMT, or @000 Swatch Beats, 12 noon is equivalent to @500 beats, and so on. So if it's @812 at my place, it's also 812 beats at yours and everyone else's.
