Re: ISO 8601

Well there’s the problem(s) straight away

goverment ! USAian gov at that.

The Radio people sorted this out back in the early part of the 20th centuary !

Day starts at 00:00:00 and ends at 23:59:59

Binary - two digits - 0 to 1 NOT 2; octal 0 to 7 NOT 8; deneray 10 digits 0 to 9 NOT 0 to 10; hex - well you should get thge point by now. How on earth can you have hour 24 a 24 hour system ?

Monday 23:59:58 tic Monday 23:59:59 tic TUESDAY 00:00:00 tic Tuesday 00:00:01...

There is no such time as 24:00 (or 24:00:00)

ANY attempt to go to 24:00:00 is patently barking mad
