A very nice idea.......hopefully BBC Radio 2 Programmes - Steve Wright in the Afternoonhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006wr4r
will not wish to sue us for borrowing their idea??
So I'll see your Yahoo and Atomic Clock and raise you a Factisimal ( no?
) of my own.
The modern compass has 360 degrees because it is based upon the ancient Babylonian base sixty system which was first formulated around 3100 bc.
It is also the basis of our standard clockface and time keeping system.
Not bad for people who lived over five thousand years ago.
Whilst our modern computers use a much simpler binary, base two, system ...... makes me wonder if we are quite as advanced as we like to think we are?
