Something that has bugged since I started using GeekTool is in the time

there was always a 0 in front ie. 07:30 pm , after a bit of trial & error I discovered it should be

date + "%l:%M" which is lower case L not upper case i.

Lower case L gives the 7:30, upper case i gives the 07:30pm probably a typo from back awhile (as in some fonts they look almost identical).

Anyhow for those that want or care, now you ALL can sleep well. 8D

hi, how could you modify this to add 6 six hours to create a second time zone. i have tried but don't know enough to modify it. i am already running one on my desktop but want to run a second in a different time zone.
