Word O'Clock

The Word O'Clock screensaver tells you the current time not with digits or a clock face but with words, using a grid of letters. The letters relevant to the current time are highlighted, spelling out something like "It is ten past four" or "It is five to eleven", with all the other letters greyed out. With every second that passes, some letters are swapped, and when the minute has passed a different section of the grid is highlighted to reflect the current time. The text and background color can optionally be customized to your preference.

I do like, but it only updates every 15 mins for some reason. at 58 after it still says 'quarter to'

Would love to fix this myself but I have no clue how

Cool but there's a bug saying "half past seven" on every hour. Fixes when its five past the hour and works the rest of the time.

Screensaver looks great, but it shows the wrong time. My computer clock is at 11:04 at the moment, screensaver says its half pas seven.

I like it, but it only shows on 1 screen. The second monitor does not start a screen saver at all. Dont see an option to change this and I dont want to adapt my screen configuration (extended over 2 monitors).
