Variation 5, where instead of using the time values as hex pairs,
I actually take the milliseconds since Jan 1, 1970 and after taking the modulus
(to constrain it to a max converted value of #FFFFFF)
convert the decimal remainder value of the time to the appropriate hex value.
This is essentially both time and date mapped to use the full range of #000000 to #FFFFFF.
Links to my variations (and the original I based my varitions on):
- Date (YY-MM-DD) & Time (hh:mm:ss) combined
- Date (DD-MM-YY) & Time (hh:mm:ss) combined
- Date (DD-MM-YY) & Time (hh:mm:ss) combined & expanded to full color range (#000000-#FFFFFF)
- Time only in true hex value, each part is converted from decimal to hex rather than using the decimal value as a hex pair
(as is done in the original provided by http://whatcolourisit.scn9a.org/).
