Re: speeding?

just done some sums .. its not far off that:

186282 miles per second

5280 feet per mile

= 982080000 feet per second

12 inches in a foot

=11784960000 inches per second

1000000000 a billion nanos in a sec

=11.78496 inches per nanosecond

Although that margin is probably significant when considering light speed and associated distances.
