Very neat, but it's even harder to "read" than regular digital time!

Unfortunately it uses 64 secs per minute and 64 minutes per hour, but keeps 24 hrs per day. So unless we slow down the earth's rotational speed, we will have to have shorter seconds. The new "binary second" or "bicend"(!) would need to be (60 x 60) / (64 x 64) = only 88% the duration of our existing seconds.

So instead of counting "One Scaglietti, Two Scaglietti" we will have to go "One Scagliette, Two Scagliette". :green:

ps: Your 0-100 time will increase by 12%

I don't get the point here, as far as I know the seconds are as long as normal seconds. But I'm not into the rotation of the earth and all those time-things anyway. As far as I know that thing would work if I put it on my wall.

mchferrari: Maybe this helps http://www.klaphekje.com/test2.html
If it doesn't and you still want to know, ask in MSN

BTW - it is set on eastern daylight time.
