Does anyone have this car radio, and know how to set it to 24-hour time?

I figured out years ago how to change my Jeep's clock to 24-hour/military time. Recently the battery was disconnected and the clock reverted back to regular time, and I cannot figure out how to switch it back to 24-hour time. Does anyone know how to do this? [more inside]

Name for the phenomenon when all the numbers on a clock are identical?

Often I look at the clock when all the digits are the same, such as, 11:11 or 4:44. Is there a name for this? Do you have your own name for this?

It must annoy me when I don't expect it.

I need a program that will randomly pick a time to sound an alarm without my knowing in advance. It needs to be available for Mac or iPhone -- or failing that, a physical device that I can keep around would work too. [more inside]

Help me find the right angle!

I'm looking for an online resource that will allow me to enter a time (in hours, minutes, seconds) and return a listing of the angles between the hands if that time was displayed on an analog clock. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Out of time?

My Timex T311T Auto-set clock did not update this past Sunday morning with the time change. I've tried unplugging it, and removing the two AAA backup batteries, and when I give it juice again, it refuses to auto set. I've had this clock for a few years and it has never misbehaved. Any one else experience this with a similar model this weekend? Or am I missing something?

Why does the first tick take so long?

When I look at an analogue clock the second hand seems to pause before racing off on its 360-degree journey, is there an explanation for this phenomenon?

Help with a world time clock?

World clocks. I am trying to put together a clock application and can't work out how to discern the actual time is in each city. The time zone part is easy, but a great many countries (most?) use seasonal time adjustments. I have an online world clock on my screen and a physical one hanging above my head. How do they work?
