Purpose of DeciTime

This application is only fun, although there are some benefits from calculating time with the decimal system instead of the 24/60/60 system we are all used to.

####
Background

One day consists of 24 hours of 60 minutes, each of 60 seconds. This calculates to 86.400 seconds a day.

Why not count this way: One day is

**10 decimal hours** with

**100 decimal minutes**, each of

**100 decimal seconds**. This would sum up to

**100.000 decimal seconds a day**. So 1 decimal second equals exactly 0.864 second and the decimal time will tick a little bit quicker than the normal time.

To name these decimal things Sergey Zaytsev proposed to call it

**Dours**,

**Dinutes** and

**Deconds**, and so do I with his kind permission.

(See "sergeizaytsev.com/dime" for his implementation of a decimal clock).

####
Usage of DeciTime

Well, nothing complicated to be described! Open the preferences panel from the DeciTime menu, from the dock menu or the context menu of the on-screen clock. There you will find all secrets:
