    Why does it always have to disintegrate into this? Pack it in, the lot of
    you. I'm surprised that you have been swept along in all of this Graham, as
    I previously thought that you actually knew better ...

    I'd hoped you'd all realise I was joking. Maybe I should have made it more
    extreme to make the point better but I couldn't thing of any easy way to
    increase the number of f-words in that final reply. That kind of humour doesn't
    always translate well on Usenet I realise.

    Amusing does not need to be 'funny' - it's more sarcastic in this sense.
    Spectacular, likewise, does not need to imply something good - merely
    that the failure of the directive to achieve it's aims was not merely
    'fail', but a very impressive fail.

    I personally hope it comes back to bite the politicians (and there are
    good reasons it might), but most of them are either teflon covered or
    have safely retired.

    Perhaps is right.

    There are no people as conservative as the safety case folks in avionics
    safety critical systems. They will want 20 years worth of data because
    that is the typical lifetime of a system once installed in the civilian

    That's entirely the point ..America isn't metric.

    Mars Orbiter

    The use of two different systems was the root cause in the loss of the
    Mars Climate Orbiter in 1998. NASA specified metric units in the
    contract. NASA and other organizations worked in metric units but one
    subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, provided thruster performance data to
    the team in pound force seconds instead of newton seconds. The
    spacecraft was intended to orbit Mars at about 150 km altitude, but
    the incorrect data meant that it probably descended instead to about
    57 km, burning up in the Martian atmosphere.

    It's a quote...learn to read..

    In your whacko private universe perhaps....where you claim speedos are
    calibrated in Kilometers/hour as you whizz past your kilometer

    America isn't metric no matter how much you babble.

    Try asking for liters of gas...
