    Hello Roger

    The server had stopped getting messages from other servers, sometime
    over the weekend. I rung their helpdesk last night over this.


    It seems to be working again now.

    What exactly is 12pm? Is that 00:00, 12:00 or 24:00?

    12pm is lunchtime, 12:00
    00:00 or the frankly odd 24:00 is midnight, or 12am

    That's "12m".

    >00:00 or the frankly odd 24:00 is midnight, or 12am


    Both are midnight, 00:00 is the start of the day, 24:00 is the end of
    the day.

    E.g. saying "midnight Saturday" is ambiguous, but saying "00:00
    Saturday" (end of Friday, start of Saturday) or "24:00 Saturday" (end of
    Saturday, start of Sunday) is not.

    Willing to be corrected, but I didn't think that 24:00 was officially
    used for anything, it is normally 00:00 with the day specified, as
    in(using your example from above), saying "midnight Saturday" is
    ambiguous, but saying "00:00 Saturday" (end of Friday, start of
    Saturday) or "00:00 Sunday" (end of Saturday, start of Sunday) is not.

    I have only ever seen 23:59 and 00:00 expressed as times. Never
    24:00

    But it is a logical way to distinguish midnight at the end of a day from
    midnight at the start, is it not? If I say something like "your coach
    will turn into a pumpkin at twenty-four o'clock tomorrow" or "your coach
    will turn into a pumpkin at zero o'clock day after tomorrow", you can
    pretty easily work out exactly how many hours of running life your coach
    still has, can you not?

    By the way, have you ever seen a clock show "23:59:60"?
