When I retired a friend of mine gave me an old PAM electric wall clock with the "yellow pages" logo on the dial. Its been running just fine for several years but yesterdayI noticed it was running backwards.

Q. Is this a good thing :D

This clock is 8-seconds slow comparing it to my atomic clocks time. Could not rely on this to snipe bids. :twisted:

Seems like they did that a lot when I was in high school. It was not good.

A lot of the electric clocks had motors that would run either way and it was random which way they ran when plugged in. They put in a little latch mechanism that would stop it if it ran backwards at start up. If it ran against the stop, it would then pick up running the other way. Some times when they get old (probably gummed up) they will occasionally reverse themselves at random then bump the latch and start going frontwards again. Not obvious anything is wrong, but they start loosing time. If you do enough monkeying with the latch, you can make them run backwards.
