Use 24h Time

Use 24 hour time when you write something. Set all your devices to 24 hour time. Yes, your watch too. Life is too short to decode confusing messages.

09:00 or 21:00, not 9.

How do you even start explaining the Six-hour clock?

Bonus points:

Set all your servers to UTC. Especially if you have servers in more than one timezone.

  1. I couldn’t agree more. I also think it’s important that people write the year out in full, yyyy, and it would be great if the USA would move towards standardising on month in the middle when writing the date out in full, dd/mm/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd.
