If the "metric" year is shorter, then seasons such as winter and summer are going to very every decade? __________________ __________________ ` Visit today! ---> www.smouch.net/lol <--- _______________________________________________

the ke here is to convert everything to seconds. 31 days of january + 2 days of febuary. 33 X 24 X 60 X 60 = 2851200 seconds X 1.1574 = 3299978.88.

spring will start 3299978.88 secods into the "metric" year,

3299978.88 ÷ 100 (seconds to miniutes) = 32999.7888 ÷ 100 ( miniutes to hours) = 329.997888 ÷ 10 ( hours into days ) 32.9997888 days, or 3 weeks and 2 days,

there is not much difference in that, but as you get further into the year there will be a bigger difference.

then at the end of spring summer will start the according no. of seconds after. and so on

Edit. i have a nice forumuar to work it out, T = time, H = hours M= mins, get T (hX60+m)X60X1.1574 and that would display the time in metric second. am i right? __________________ He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.

Although it works out better there would be mass confusion everything we know would have to be re programmed and re worked. I think the overwhelming majority of people will be satisfied with just adding a extra day to the calender year once every 4 years. __________________

yes but in the long run we will encounter problems a large problem will be the time the seasons of the year start since 0 BC we have lost 12 days . therefre in the future the seasons will get further and further out. because the earth doesnt change its orbiting speed but we are miss calculating it by rounding it up and ignoring the 9 mins 9.54 secs every year
