The One and Only (AFAIK)

When I started to open a net reply to the 'Meet and greet' thread, I got a warning the thread was more than X days old, and not to necropost. Anyway, I am an old space enthusiast, but I have not tried the 'Orbiter' simulator yet. I was working through some old bookmarks, and stumbled across one for this site. After noticing that there is a forum here, and that there have been recent replies to threads, I decided to check it out.
I am not a big gamer, and I have not played many flight simulators, but I love space flight, and miss talking about it. There used to be a forum at Space.com that was superb, but one day it wasn't there anymore.
One thing that surprised me about this site is that it uses 12-hour clock, which I consider to be antiquated and confusing. Especially things like '03:45 PM'. True 24-clock does not involve saying 'Oh' or 'hundred', you just say the number and "o'clock" like you already do. Sure, 13 o'clock sounds weird, but you get used to it. "I'll pick you up at 17," is no different than "I'll pick you up at 6 tomorrow morning." 24 hours in a day; a clock with a hand that goes around once a day, a hand that goes around once an hour, and a hand that goes around once a minute.:thumbup:
Of course we're not dead, we're hibernating at most
You are free to change the clock settings to a 24-h format! You can find this under User CP -> Edit Options.
