    I’ve only heard of five of these 50 artists. I’m so, so out of touch. Still, more music to try. (via Beyond the Beyond)

    @tomtaylor @jar0n Also, globalise Decimal Time: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_t…

    @robtreat2 @chanmix51 @russss But if most of your dates are more recent, and might well need month/day… using native type is v handy.

    @meeware @russss Yeah, there’s not much, unless you’re looking at, say, invention of tools or geology or astronomy. Anyway, just a joke :)

    @russss I thought date only went back to 4713 BC? bit.ly/SP2B8D Or have I got confused?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @russss Possibly. Apparently some things happened before then. Bloody humans and their civilisations.

    Wondering if Creationists have committed to storing dates in a format that only goes back to, say, 4713 BC and don’t want to refactor code.
