PIC-based “Martian clock”

Why *another* PIC-based clock project on the Net? Builder Alex argues this one is different. It can show different timezones, planetary times, moon phase, Jupiter’s GRS transit times,, anything periodical. It has 16 timers that can be paused and reversed independently, each with independent alarm. Oh, and it’s egg timer, too. I love his use of an old modem as the project box.
