    Julian Dates

    How about putting the Julian date at the top of the home page for easy reference when we are out shopping for chlorine? Something like: "Today is June 28, 2016 16 180".

    If you know your 3 times table to 12 it's easy. Just drop the last digit and divide by 3. Your answer is the month in numerical form, (round up if you are past the next 10th decimal) to get the current month you are in.

    i.e. 180 would be 18 / 3 = 6 (June)

    250 would be 25 / 3 ~ 8.xx (August + 1 = Sept)

    You answer will be accurate within ~ 2 weeks.

    Re: Julian Dates

    I don't have trouble figuring out the date myself, but had just read through a thread where someone didn't know. Just a suggestion!

    Jesse THANKS for the suggestion! I, too, see people asking about it all of the time. I will pass this idea onto our IT department.

    Re: Julian Dates

    While the suggestion to place a Julian calendar on the site is good, I would think that putting a calendar of any type on the site might tie up server resources to some degree. An option might be to consider adding a static page (maybe linked to Pool School??) showing a table with Julian dates.

    Here's one example: Julian Day Calendar
    And here's something similar (a zip file containing a Word document): Julian Day Calendar.zip

    Re: Julian Dates

    I can't imagine it would tie up much resources but I also have zero experience with a forum of this size. I was thinking since there is a date/time stamp on every single post, to have just a date stamp at the top of the homepage would be nice. As I mentioned, I have no problem figuring out the Julian date but others on here do. I suppose a link to a calendar showing the date would work fine too. Just some thoughts!
