    unsolicited and pedantic language footnote:  The word "arcane" means
    obscure, mysterious, and complicated; the writer was probably intending
    "archaic."

    Jim, I'm afraid that giving bearings "by the clock" is going to fall by the
    wayside. Kids now entering college have usually learned time in school by
    digital clocks and digital wristwatches. If you tell them "it's at two
    oclock" they actually stop and calculate. Or just stop. Personally I still
    prefer an analog clock and watch for many reasons, but it is becoming the
    arcane tool.
