    Haha, no worries, took all of about 30 seconds once I worked out how to interpret the fractional madness that is inches :lol:

    I'm thinking of teaching my self all the stuff in the metric system since America is the only place with inches and feet and etc.

    1" = 25.4 milimeters (mm) = 2.54 cm = 0.0254 m
    1' - 304.8 mm = 30.48 cm = 0.305 m

    1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm) = 1000 milimeters (mm)

    It's all decimal divisions, so much easier to work with. Working in a hardware shop though, I've had to learn how to convert and work in both systems rather quickly, especially when you have someone come in looking for timber and they've used about 4 different measuring scales :lol:

    I have to use it for physics and like just having to move a decimal to go from mm to cm instead of 12" is 1' 3' is 1 yard some long as number is miles
