|Steampunk Orrery Plasmoid Widget for Linux Kubuntu 0.5.1||
This is the Steampunk Orrery widget - it provides an orrery function via a truly steampunk interface. Select a date via the calendar ring and click the date shown and it will allow you to view the planetary movements of the moon and the earth. You can use the ring to select the future or past and whilst you are doing so the orrery will allow you to reflect on the passage of time and the true nature of this force that controls our lives. Well, it might...
The calendar ring rotates by mouse
control, the date displays according to ring position. The inner earth
and moon rotate, the moon around the earth. The earth rotates around the
central glow, roughly following the track of the window circular frame.
The developer known as 'joker' has used my original graphics and my
design but simply
enhanced the functionality in respect of the planetary movement and the
co-ordination of the various components. A very good job I say...
Please let me know what you think of the orrery/calendar. If you like it, then feel free to leave a comment below.
