I saw one TF system based on base 48, which was rather cool, but it always struck me as just because WE use 48-bit as a standard for computing (why is that? I must look it up) for a species living as long as a TF surely they'd use something more, I don't know, "logically decimalised"?
At the moment, I'm working in "thousands", and the system is based on the "standard unit" length of a day. There's no such thing as a month or a week, because they don't seem necessary at the moment. (I mean, why say "a month" when you can just as easily say "30 days"?) ("Years" are probably used in practice as a sort of "slang", but not part of the official measures.)
So far I have (although I'm probably going to rename them):
10^0 = 1 day (which I've implied is quite long, equivalent to 3.5 Earth days, to take into account all the night-time scenes in the cartoons XD Well, there's got to be a reason for it, right?)
10^3 = 1000 days = 1 "year"
10^6 = 1,000,000 days = 1000 "years" = "century"
So Seem, who is coming up on 40 vorns if going by the "official" TF canon measures, is... about 346 years old?
(40 vorns = 40x83 years = 3320 years.
Assuming these are the same length as Earth years, this means 1211800 Earth days.
Divide by 3.5 gives about 346229 "Ct" days.
Which is 346 "years" (orrr I guess they'd probably decimalise to 3.46x10^5 in some measuring systems...?)
OK my brain has melted. WAAAY to early to be doing this. I forget the point I was making.)
Althooough I guess in binary terms 8 is a logical number to use too...? As in, 10001000 etc.
In other news, I have confirmed with the management company that I haven't missed my service charge this year, so they're not going to send snipey letters telling me to pay up or else. (They only posted it last week)
Edit: I also kiiinda want to make little enamel pin badges with my blue angryface (example above) but I don't think I could justify the initial outlay, because I'm the only person who'd want one. XD
