what an excellent idea: atomic clock devices to power church clocks and other hard to get to and difficult or delicate to change timepieces.

also, the summertime change is much easier to deal with mentally when your clocks change automatically. although most of my clocks are still manual it wasn’t until this morning that i had cause to look at one that wasn’t my computer (which performs jiggerypokery by itself) or my alarm clock (which gets timekeeping incantations from rugby). when you just get up and find the time changed it’s much less grinding than when you have to change it yourself.
