This shows you what fun you can have by calling methods available in
the Control Panel. You can display quite a bit of neat information,
like the uptime of your Zope server like we do here at ZopeLabs. One
caveat though, you must use a proxy role to use these. Ordinary Joe
Schmoe user or Anonymous has no permissions to view these.

Does this works when the user is anonymous?

I would highly doubt it.  anonymous doesnt have access to /manage 
or to /Control_Panel goodies.  but you could easily 
set a proxy role on it (use the Manager role) 
and viola, everyone can use the method.

use the Proxy Tab, luke.
