Date and Time Tech-Demo ¶
I've built a tech-demo for Asgardia Date and Time.

Wow! That is really amazing! I've made Lena De Winne aware of it and she's taken a look.
Are you offering this for broader use? Because we're impressed! We'd like to see if it can be integrated into the main website.
Kind regards, Rebekah Berg, Lead Community Administrator, Asgardia

You could. If needed I could also create a library (front-end based) that allows implementing the same thing into any other website.
Actually, the time zone of the decree #2 date and time is out of sync with the calendar published on asgardia.space. I welcome any information about the time zone (my implementation is using Zulu as the timezone for Asgardia date and time). If it is relying on the timezone used by the visitor, it wouldn't be that hard to implement that this way. Please let me know what is used.
If you request a plugin, please tell me the library preferred (jquery or something else).

I'll see what I can find out! I'll be linking this thread and your tech-demo in a ticket for the IT team. :) Let's hope we can get this integrated easily!
Thanks again! Rebekah

The jQuery Component will be part of the Singularity Prime Stargate Initiative.

I have had a look at your star date suggestion. Unfortunately I am unable to understand it. While Mathematics was never my strongest subject, I am quite an intelligent person.
What is the 6.48 (as it currently stands) whats that referencing? Im assuming that its 12 October 2016? So how do we come up with 6.48 for a period of about 5 months and 10 days?
For someone who may not be an elite mathematician, can you provide a non mathematical way for someone to be able to immediately pin point the star date, for example an appointment on 15 August 2017 at 14:00?

A non-mathmatical way would be to use the provided tool?
Computers are good at this sort of thing.
Unfortunately, the number systems don't entirely align - like counting in dec and hex. 45 can be 45 or it can be 69. Manually counting it with offsets it possible, but seriously - tools are supposed to make life easier...

6.48 stands for 6 Starmonth á 25 days ( 150 days ) and 0.48 Starmonth ( 0.04 = 1 day, 0.40 = 10 days, 0.48 = 12 days ) in sum 162 days since (and including) the 12th October 2016, which is the 22. March 2017.
Please keep in mind the standard is a recommendation and the implementation may differ from the recommendation, actually i "include" the 12th October, 2016. Which would be considered deprecated in the future ( which would remove 0.04 from the Stardate counter ).

The actual tech demo is out of sync (decree no.2 implementation) and will be updated as soon as I get the requested information.
