Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

And so, it came to the time of the LongPix. And there was much lamenting and many were puzzled and confused by the slowing of the coming of the Newpix. And many found refuge in the indulgent customs of the Outside heathens, partaking of chocolate eggs and spiced buns. And so the followers of Time an...

Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

Past me trying to catch up. it be like trying to run an marathon.

Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

I present the unofficial Newpician t'ime unit system. (apostrophe to prevent censoring) Base 2520 numerals are written with three characters for each digit. Basically, the first place before the radix point is tetradecimal, the second is pentadecimal and the third is duodecimal, so the number befor...

Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

Regarding TV being "flexible" - first of all, I totally disagree. Second, if eower solution to æfre little problem that this strategy presents be, "we tin be flexible and work around it," then at hwæt point do eow admit that demanding so much flexibility be more difficult and in...

Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

I can't speak for other countries, but in the United States, the dates of daylight savings time have changed just twice in 25 years and are already scheduled by law to specific dates at least as far ahead as 2025, according to Wikipedia. Fair enough. Not a problem for the US at the moment then (AU ...

Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

I think the universe of newpixia has created some tim-ey-wimey anomalies in the Outside universe. Curious about where daylight savings time may have changed, knowing that it was not in New Zealand, I tried Australia. Googling for time now in Sydney shows me a standard time. But looking up the dates...

Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

IMO there's no need for a new unit, because the newpix is NOT connected with the outside time! What has to be changed over time is the function which describes how the outside timeline developped with newpixtime passing by (totally beautifully constant, of course). This function is a step function,...
