Nixie Clock -- Version 1.64 - Updated Apr 4, 2012

Default mode

Digit mode ('nixieclock -d')

Hour mode ('nixieclock -h')

In v1.61 there was a fix to prevent using excessive CPU.
If you were seeing some high cpu use from nixieclock (eg. around 2% or so) in older releases,
be sure to upgrade to 1.61 or higher to get the fix.
