And while we are already redefining the fundamental constants of measuring, we could redefine the meter to be exactly three feet and the kilogram to be exactly two pounds. I have no idea what havoc that would cause for gallons and litres, but I am quite sure musicians will be thrilled to tune their instruments to a standard of 380,16 "new hertz" ;) ___________________________________________ Gunter Hick Software Engineer Scientific Games International GmbH FN 157284 a, HG Wien Klitschgasse 2-4, A-1130 Vienna, Austria Tel: +43 1 80100 0 E-Mail: hick at scigames.at This communication (including any attachments) is intended for the use of the intended recipient(s) only and may contain information that is confidential, privileged or legally protected.
