IDEA: test your internal clock - SPITEFUL TIMER
« on: May 01, 2005, 02:05:20 PM »
i was thinking of like a little tray tool or else a window on top,
and you are supposed to click it once per hour, on the hour.
and it would assign you a score based on how far off you are.

so after each hour you would get some points:
maybe like score+= 1800-Offset (in seconds).

so if you ran it for 24 hours and always hit the timer exactly, you would have 24 * (1800-0) points (43200 points)
if you ran it for 24 hours and were 30 minutes late on average, you would have 24 * (1800-1800) points (0 points)
if you ran it for 24 hours and were 40 minutes late on average, you would have 24 * (1800-2400) pointe (-14400 points)

further more, each time you shut it down it should take away 50000 points, just for spite.

we could call it SPITEFUL TIMER.

plus as an extra feature, if you are LATE it should make a scary sound, to encourage you.

if you leave it running for 24 hours in a row you get a bonus 100,000 points.
If you are within 1 second, a bonus 50.000.

could someone please code the 'anti spiteful timer' that automatically clicked 'spiteful timer' at exactly the correct time - i could then leave it running on a dedicated machine just for this task and get to the top of the league table straight away.
