Re: Wednesday Evening 40 and 80 meter Nets - Wed, 02/24/2021 20:00-21:00 #cal-reminder


HI HI HI HI HI ... re: whimsey   the only thing I see that 'may' be changed is the colon (demarcation as Bill labeled it) in the 24 hour, aka military, time stamp. In either 24 hour or military time there is no colon.  Why? The whole idea about 24 hour or military time is to NOT CONFUSE anyone about the time. Colons in civilian time are acceptable but not in 24 hour or military time.

Otherwise, and even that didn't phase me, who cares?  So you get a reminder why beat it to death over a "personal whim"? 

That's my story.....

In further consideration of the whimsey, I also like the reminders; however, to specify time in military time format, the times, without colon demarcation, require a letter designating the time zone as in 2000S to 2100S. And then there is the question of date format as DD/MM/YY versus MM/DD/YY versus fully specifying the year in either format as YYYY. On second thought, is the / required?


I think we understand the reminder as is and one session I hope to participate!

I like these notices, reminders, BUT I do not like how long the subject is, couldn't you make it a bit shorter by removing the redundant parts, how about:



[4SQRP] Wednesday Evening 40 and 80 meter Nets - Wed, 02/24/2021 20:00-21:00 #cal-reminder


[4SQRP] Reminder: 40 and 80 meter Nets - Wed, 02/24/21 2000-2100


After all Wed. 02/24/21 2000 - 2100 says it all.


Also in the 24 hr clock no " : " is used, and the year 2021 isn't needed 21 will do but even if used it's much shorter.


[4SQRP] Reminder: 40 and 80 meter Nets - Wed, 02/24/2021 2000-2100


;-) - please forgive me for this nonsensical email.
