24 hours a day (Here's a  day clock)

IT'S NEARLY HEAR - THE NEW MILLENARY, Mark Agius explains how his ten hour clocks will work.


In the beginning God created heaven, and earth.
And the earth was void and empty, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the sprit of God moved over the waters.
And God saw the light that it was good; and he divided the light from the darkness.
And he called the light Day, and the darkness Night. And there was evening and morning one day.
And a few days later or so Man decided to divide the day up into 24 hours!

The old 24 hour clock system.

24 hours = 1 day 12 hours = a day 60 minutes = 1 hour 60 seconds = 1 minute 86,400 seconds = 1 day

The new 10 hour clock system.

10 new hours = 1 day 5 new hours = a day 100 new minutes = 1 new hour 100 new seconds = 1 new minute 100,000 new seconds = 1 day

If you wish to convert a 12 hour analogue clock into a 5 hour analogue clock then;

1) Print-out the 5 hour clock face below,
2) Cut-out the picture, (don't forget the hole in the centre)
3) Remove the hands from your 12 hour clock face,
4) Stick the new 5 hour clock face onto your clock,
5) Put the hour hand back on.

If your clock strikes-out the chimes on the hour then you must turn-off or disable this feature.
Also as the minute hand moves round the clock face twelve times in half a day (old 12 hour clocks)
and not five times (new 10 hour system) you should only replace the hour hand.
