Surely this can't be right?
Sounds like you have it on the 24hr setting.
Sounds more like a modern day Cinderella who gets to start with a clean slate at midnight.
It's set to military time. You need to set it to the 12 hour clock.:smile:
So, why is it 00:23 and not 24:23?
I know that there are only 24 hours in a day but why can't it be the 24th hour and then minutes past it?
00:00 seems like nothing. :smile:
Nonsense. This is another European cultural point that's much more sensible than its US counterpart. They do need to do away with that metric nonsense, though.
We index time from zero, so 24:23 would be in the 25th hour...there is no 25th hour. I suspect you already know this, however...even the Welsh aren't this oblivious. :tongue:
Because, it's not. :12:
You are such a snarky beeyotch today, are you on the rag?
You're such an overly sensitive crybaby today...are you ragging? :biggrin1:
Of course it wouldn't occur that telling another what they need to do might come off as snarky or beeyotchish in and of itself...
Of course not.
00:23 is much easier. Otherwise you have to say it's 12 AM or PM. This way there is no confusion possible
00:00 means no time, which clearly doesn't exist, or did the Buddhists sneak this one in?
You looking for your redwings?
Now look you boyo :tongue: Wales is the perfect place for an existential paradox. Don't you get Torchwood?
You have a talking clock?
Your hetero clock is signaling in code, reminding you:
nought nought colon nought nought
Of course it exists, in the sense that any human construct for measuring a naturally continuous phenomenon exists.
00:00:00.0000 simply marks the instant in time when the people of the earth observe the beginning of a new day on the calendar. Though you clock will not update its display for a full second (or perhaps a full minute), time itself progresses ceaselessly. You might still see all zeroes, but after the blink of an eye the time is actually 00:00:00.20, etc., etc...the reading just means you're presently living the initial minute of a new day.
My question is, how the hell did you notice this? One would hope that as midnight rolls around, your attention would be focused elsewhere... :biggrin1:
Sure...everytime I stick it in a hot box. :tongue:
That was priceless!
Rumour has it that the clock was a keepsake from one of Pendragon's merry widows.
As mourning follows the knight.
It's not though. It's just that your clock doesn't display all the whole seconds, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, millionths, etc. of seconds or nanoseconds during that one minute where your clock is displaying 00:00. If you want greater display accuracy, buy a clock which has more place displays.
