About Poodwaddle.com

Way back in 2007 we had this crazy idea of a world statistics counter we chose to name the World Clock. We couldn't have known that it would become so popular. Success was a complete surprise... but don't worry, we are still the same humble, eccentric, coffee guzzling coders we always were - and that is a good thing.

Poodwaddle is now in it's 7th generation, and our scope has narrowed. We are now dedicated to the science of time - no, not the magazine. I'm talking about time, as in past, present, and future. We gather statistics about the past and predictions for the future, interesting tidbits of history, and hints of things to come. We calculate life span and encourage you to use your time wisely. And of course we offer plenty of ways for you to waste your time, because, as Bertrand Russell said, "Time you enjoy wasting, is not wasted time."

Are you still reading this? Cripes, stop wasting time! Your life is ticking away while you stare blankly at the screen. I can see you there, gaping, slack-jawed, hoping desperately that my words will give some greater meaning to your life. Well, guess what? I don't have the answers, but I can tell you that the average person lives 2 billion seconds, and you just wasted a hundred of yours.



Troubleshooting

When Poodwaddle was first born it was built on Flash, which has now gone the way of the dinosaur (thanks to Apple's lust for power and Androids lust to be like Apple). Now all of our modern pages have been migrated to Javascript (and HTML and CSS). Javascript is a very good language for the web apps we provide, but it does have it's price. Each browser implements Javascript a bit differently. Older browsers do not support all the CSS styles that we would like and some mobile browsers (like Opera Mini) do not support the full Javascript language. Internet Explorer is the biggest thorn in the side of every web developer. However IE 8+ should work fine. As a web developer I would highly recommend that you upgrade to Google Chrome. It is screaming fast compared to the rest. We do not test older browsers or all mobile browsers so we can't guarantee compatibility.

Poodwaddle.com only works on a javascript enabled browser. If you have turned off javascript then the site will lose it's mind (literally), the menus will not show, and the world clock will stop ticking - basically the world will come to a screeching halt.

Poodwaddle requires a relatively modern browser. If you are running an older browser then the site might not look quite right or function very well.
