[QUOTE=B!N4RY;49568580]are you seriously getting upset over a measurement system?[/QUOTE] How can you read a post that literally says [QUOTE=lavacano;49568274]I don't give half a shit what measurement system you prefer[/QUOTE] and assume that the very thing that I said I don't care about is the thing I'm upset over? What kind of brain damage do you have to have for that to be even remotely logical?

[QUOTE=butre;49567773]not my fault you can only handle powers of 10[/QUOTE] Get real, there's no reason for the absurd complexity of the imperial system. It's incredible how people actually still use that joke of a system. It's like defending a fridge door where you have to do some absurd action to open it just because you're used to it, and easier to use fridge doors would be "for babies".
[QUOTE=paul simon;49568830]It's like defending a fridge door where you have to do some absurd action to open it[/QUOTE] I can actually do this I once had a fridge where whenever you had to open it, you had to put both hands on the handle, one foot on the opposite door (it was one of those side-by-side models), and pelvic thrust, and only then would the door open. The upside was that the fridge was really well sealed - no matter what, air of the wrong temperature was NOT getting through that fridge door when it closed. Really handy for power outages. I don't know why you had to pelvic thrust. I think it's something to do with levers and I didn't take physics in high school so this part is outside my field
When it comes to a fully metric time of day system, it just wouldn't really work. The earths rotation, the moons orbit, our orbit around the sun. It's not relative in a way that makes sense in a metric system. Our orbit and rotation isn't something we can decide, so we had to make a system based on how it is. I mean sure, we can have 100 seconds per minute, 100 minutes per hour, and 100 hours per day. But we could not have 100 days per month, or 1000 days per year, right. Because we just can't decide those things. (yet!!!) A day is defined as one full rotation of the earth, and as it happens there's ~365 of those per year, which is defined by a full orbit around the sun. The metric system still can apply to and be used for time. (kiloseconds, megaseconds, nothing stops the use of this) but it just won't be useful for knowing what time of the year it is.

Let's bring it back. [t]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/Clock-french-republic.jpg[/t] [QUOTE]Decimal time is the representation of the time of day using units which are decimally related. This term is often used specifically to refer to French Revolutionary Time, which divided the day into 10 decimal hours, each decimal hour into 100 decimal minutes and each decimal minute into 100 decimal seconds, as opposed to the more familiar standard time, which divides the day into 24 hours, each hour into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds. The main advantage of a decimal time system is that, since the base used to divide the time is the same as the one used to represent it, the whole time representation can be handled as a single string. Therefore, it becomes simpler to interpret a timestamp and to perform conversions. For instance, 1:23:00 is 1 decimal hour and 23 decimal minutes, or 1.23 hours, or 123 minutes; 3 hours is 300 minutes or 30,000 seconds. This property also makes it straightforward to represent a timestamp as a fractional day, so that 2016-01-20.534 can be interpreted as five decimal hours and 34 decimal minutes after the start of that day, or 0.534 (53.4%) of a day through that day. It also adjusts well to digital time representation using epochs, in that the internal time representation can be used directly both for computation and for user-facing display.[/QUOTE]
Just had this client complain that his server went down, went to check on it and it was up on the grub cli. So i had him boot to a recovery image, and i found out that the the disk went bad. Told him to reload the OS and we'll get the old disks attached. He told me wasn't a linux man, and he would prefer to fix grub. End users with servers :suicide:
