Description:

This clock is inspired to the Pong game (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pong)!
If you want to know the time, just look at the score while the cute and efficient hamsters are playing for you!

It is just as simple as it sounds, enjoy :)

Installation instruction:
-Manual Installation:
Extract the folder PongClock to your ~/.screenlets/ directory (if you don't have a .screenlets directory in your home folder, just create it!).
Start the screenlets manager and the screenlet will appear with all the others.

-Automatic Installation (since 1.4):
Open Screenlets Manager and select install from the left menu. Then locate the archive and install it.


[strike]I recommend to install the font included in the archive. You can find the instructions in the readme file[/strike]
Since version 1.3 it uses SVG images instead of font.

Just a note--

If you want users to be able to install the screenlet through the manager, you should package it with screenlets-packager. The screenlets-packager script should already be in your path if you have screenlets installed. You can run it with:

screenlets-packager <screenlet directory>

Extract the folder PongClock to your ~/.screenlets/ directory (if you don't have a .screenlets directory in your home folder, just create it!).
Start the screenlets manager and the screenlet will appear with all the others.

I'm adding this the notes.

I think this is a really cool idea for a screenlet- I've fixed a few minor bugs in it (right click, move) and removed the need for installing a font (by making SVGs out of the numbers).
