For the few Pingers that have been in my office, the one item that gets more comments than any other is my clock made out of old computer parts. A hard drive platter is the face and it’s laid on a board of some sort. Various small chips mark off the time. It’s a nifty clock and makes good use of the notoriously environmentally unfriendly computer parts. I used to just be able to tell people that it was “made by a woman in Maryland who collects old computer parts from people and turns them into clocks.” Well, now she has a web site, MakinTimeClocks.com. You can see a sample of her work in the catalogue, including the one that looks the most similar to the one I have. Some other favorites include this large one and this one with a pendulum.
