Welcome to our fun resources all about time!


What is time?

This website is a fun and educational resource all about time. On our pages you'll find world times, print friendly calendars, an online alarm and stopwatch, countdown timers and even quizzes and historical time facts.

What is time? To most of us time is simply 'what our clock or watch reads' and the continued progress of events and existence. These events occur in irreversible succession (unless you believe in time travel?) from the past through the present to the future. Time has always been an important and often perplexing subject to scholars of science, philosophy and religion.

As science progesses time is seen as part of the fundamental structure of the universe and dimension independent of events. In physics and mathematics time is referred to as the fourth dimension and is used to define other quantities such as aceleration or velocity. It also plays a massive part in industry and sport - everybody knows who the fastest man of the planet is!!

Historically, time is a fascinating subject from man's earliest attempts with shadow clocks and sundials in Egyptian and Babylonian astronomy, right through to the invention of the marine chronometer by English carpenter and clockmaker John Harrison. And did you know that in Great Britain 1752 was thus a short year with only 355 days as the Julian calendar was replaced by the Gregorian calendar. But more of that on our facts page.

We'll keeping added to this site - it's a new site that went online in April 2017. And well keep improving our scripts and information. By the way most of our scripts use JQuerry or javascript and open-source scripts that come with a free to use MIT licence. We use all scripts in good faith but if you believe any script on this site is copyrighted please let us know.

Recent updates: We've just added a super alarm clock script to the site. Enjoy it but please use your own clock for that important meeting or flight (smile) - it just incase your computer settings or internet connection hinders its functionality!!

It only remains for me to say that I hope you enjoy the site and call back now-and-again to see our new additons. And if there are no addition yet, don't forget 'better late than never'.
