Clocks and flies are of interest to me because ... they move.
What is fascinating about moving things is that they are naturally amenable to animation. And I am a True Believer in the important and constructive role that animation can play in education/training/communication in general and in applied mathematics fields such as OR/MS in particular.
My interest in flies goes back to 1989 when I immigrated to Australia. Shooing off flies is an essential skill in some parts of this beautiful country! So for many years I had to cope with flies buzzing around my web site. The Australian Tourism Commission may not like this, but ... this is a fact of life here!
My interest in clocks goes back to 1995 when I created my first web site. I have been using virtual clocks ever since.
In a very small way these creatures tell us how far behind we are in exploiting existing technologies for educational/training and more generally communication purposes.
For your convenience we arrange a plain black backround below so that you will have a better view of the flying clock.
Regarding the good old flies, for your convenience we provide an environmentally friendly anti-ants spray. Use it freely, or if you prefer, kill the flies with a click of your mouse.
