I use Convert-Me on a computer and an app called ConvertPad on my phone.

It would be nice if I didn't ever have to convert units.

edit: I just noticed they added Planck units to convert-me... I think we should all start using that as a standard.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: Online conversion
I work with CAD at an engineering company. Most of our work is overseas (China, India, etc.) I use the metric system extensively. It is sooooo much simpler to use metric. The only issues are when you try to convert between english and metric.

I remember the conversion campaign that the government tried in the seventies and the backlash and counter-campaign. We screwed up. In metric you divide by 5 & 10. In english by 12 & 16. Which is easier? Facepalm

Hey we are tired of it too. I always have to convert stuff because most of my friends aren't American.

Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
