Btw, I guess I'm too idiot, but I'll never be able to understand the rationale behind the MM/DD/YY format.
I think that even the YY/MM/DD precedence would be more logical.
Intuitively, we use subdivisions from lower to higher or vice-versa, not mixing them up...
m, cm, km ???
Agreed - but I guess it's because we're used to the logical(*) meter and kilo systems that go from small to large (and vice versa). It makes sense to move from a smaller unit to a larger.

(*)I mean mathematically logical, not necessarily more sensible/practical for daily use (though I think so )

Yep, same here

And I so agree with the original request! I'm always confused on when a post was made here.... (posted in january? oh wait, it was posted on the first of august...)

Which is the correct way to do it, naturally!

Finding the exact forumula is easy. Simplifying it without losing too much accuracy is the hard bit

Woohoo thank you so much that works perfectly. I can't remember if we had 24H clock before but I'm glad to see that too.

Your speedy response is much appreciated.

Don't mess around with dividing by 5/9 or adding 32. Just reverse the digits.

A couple of examples:

28 C = 82 F

16 C = 61 F

Get the idea?

Erm that would make 50 F become 5 C which is a 5 degree difference which is huge.
