Hi David,

Long time no chat. Interesting hypothesis by Willern, but as always, it's those fine scale value issues that rear their less than charming heads in these matters. However,,, I just ran across an unusual item while doing some studies of the early days of supercomputer constructions such as the Cray 1, back in the early 70's. What I found most interesting in this presentation was the distance the inventor Seymour Cray mentioned that Light traveled in one nanosecond, or 1 billionth of a second, was extremely close to the ancient Egyptian Ft. in ratio to the Imperial as 63/64. The value Cray mentioned was 11 3/4ths. inches, but when I did the calculation according to the Old Meter value of 39.375 ins., I was very surprised to see that it was 1224/1225 less than the aforesaid ratio to the Imperial Ft. In other words, 12 ins x (63/64) x (1224/1225) = 11.802875714 etc. ins. This value times 1 billion equals the Old Meter definition of the Speed of Light. Still interesting once again eh?

Best regards,

Stephen
