    errrrrm. actualy in the UK we use miles also...... surprised me really to findout that they used miles and not KM cause they use metric for everything else (except body weight which is measured in 'stones' and god knows where they came up with that one)

    just a thought about this
    Hmm...good point, Sledge, but I think that if Internet time was adopted as a standard, they would have several time servers like they do now. A distributed network of servers each pinging away counting the .beats of the day. You'd probably have to change them all.

    I think we should all move to the decimal-system for
    counting time and I think IT would be a needed step
    in that direction...

    No more converting hours to seconds or days to minu-
    tes in school, think about it.
