In the time-wasting hacks department...

It occurred to me this evening that the 32x32 iChat icon might be an interesting place to put a really tiny bit of information visualization. You could have a little clock to show the local time in your time zone, or a mood icon in one corner, or a colour-coded ring to indicate what you've been doing recently, or a sparkline of some meaningful parameter.



For now it's a little bar indicating the history of my iChat status over the last hour. And just for fun the image is rotated like the hour hand of a clock, so i tumble slowly twice in a day.
