A "time of day image greeting" widget for your blog

I've created a widget which displays a different image greeting depending on the time of day: morning, day, evening or night. You can see this in action below:

Try visiting this page at a different time of day to see the other images.

This widget uses the local time of your computer to display the correct image for the time of day. Until 10am, the image will say "Good Morning", until 5pm it will be "Good Day"; until 8pm it will be "Good evening", and then finally, "Good Night".

To install this widget in your blog, you can either use the widget installer button, or copy and paste the code further down the page into an HTML/Javascript widget of your blog.

Here is the code to copy and paste into your blog if you prefer to install the widget manually (or would like to display this in a post:

<div align="center"><script src="" type="text/javascript"></script></div>

You can copy and paste this code intop an HTML/Javascript widget in your blog sidebar, or in the HTML editor of your post. The image displayed is 200px wide, so it should fit neatly in most sidebars.

I hope you enjoy this widget! As you may have noticed, I've been experimenting with Javascript and widget creation these past few days, and have posted some of my successful creations here. I'm actually working towards a much larger project which I'll post about closer to completion.

Please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions below.
