24 hour or 12 hour? do you think 24 hour time is confusing? I personally use 24 hour time. I have it set on my phone, Mac, iPod, and Xbox. Even the clock on my camera shows 24 hour time.

I use 12 hour because that's what I've grown accustomed to. However, during my recent trip to Taiwan, it would seem as though other parts of the world use the 24 hour clock.

I don't find it confusing, just something one has to get used to. Within a day or two on my trip I knew exactly what 16:30 meant without having to convert it to 12 hour time.

I just do the "subtract 2" thing. right now its 19:39. well thats 7:39 because 19-2 is 17. thus, 7. its an odd way, but it works for me.

Nothin but the 24 hour clock set to the local time here in Vancouver, just what I"m used to.....now if Alpine would get that feature added to it's radios.....then the last holdout would be set to the 24 hour clock too !

This is a multiplatform home !

I would like to use the Zulu system but due to living in America it becomes a bit useless, someone will tell me to meet up with them at 7am or 6pm, or a store will say it closes at 10PM, there is really no point to it if I just have to convert all the time. There is nothing that confuses me about the Zulu system, there's nothing really to be confused about. Although I have recently switched to using Celsius for the temperature and am almost finished completely switching over to the metric system I protest the ways America pushes upon me!

Use the Rep System!!

I use the 12 hour format. To me, the 24 hour format seems too confusing.

I use both!
At work we use what I thought was called "military time" (24hrs) but I use the standard for everything else.

Heh heh, what I've found helpful with converting myself to it was using the Unit Converter Widget that I have, great little tool.

Use the Rep System!!

but seriously though, I really do need to learn the metric system. The rest of the world does, and whenever I hear something like "meters" or "knots" or kilometers" i curse my school.
