    24 hour clock instead of 12 hour clock

    NB time format.

    24 hour clock is international standard ISO 8601, and more countries use it.

    I personally rather 12 hour but I do not mind at all if it is 24 hour only takes a millisecond more to tell what the time is. BTW whats this poll for?

    I vote for 24 hour clock. But I thought there were 26 hours in a day?

    24 hr is easiest I think for an international forum like NB....whenever 2+ countries are involved you can't go wrong sticking to ISO recommendations!
    Here's a similar question though..What Day of the week starts the week at NB? Sunday or Monday? Or do we care?
