[Today In Discordia]

Back in my heady college days, I used to run a little command line UNIX program called ddate every time I logged into my account. Once I graduated though, I no longer had access to a UNIX system and therefore, no more ddate.

Fast forward to today where the combination of Mac OS and UNIX has allowed me to run ddate again but this time, as a Cocoa application. As a bonus, I can even have it run every time I log into my computer.

.:Requirements:.
Mac OS X 10.3.9 or better.

The so-called brains behind the brawn is the original command line program known as ddate, originally written by Druel the Chaotic aka Jeremy Johnson on the 65th day of The Aftermath in the Year of Our Lady of Discord 3157. Source code for it is floating around the Internets here and there but to make life easier for anyone interested in getting their hands on the it, I'm providing a copy of the Xcode project and C file that I tweaked to get it to compile under Mac OS X. Enjoy!
