Well, I personally know 4 people who told me that they'd missed the last
session scheduled for 0000 because they thought of it being more than 24
hours after the first session.  So I'm not the only one.

I work in an area where exact times are very important, and we don't ever
use 0000 hours; we use 2359 or 23:59:59 or 00:01 or 00:00:01.
