This irks me a little, my computer sometimes show p.m. instead of a.m. and a.m. instead of p.m. It’s just strange. The time and everything is correct. I use the 12-hour clock instead of the 24-hour. (You are an army freak if you use the 24-hour clock.)

So two in the afternoons would be 2 p.m. instead of 14:00. Anyway, my computer would switch to 2 a.m. when it’s 2 p.m. sometimes. It might be something to do with Ubuntu settings. It didn’t seem to occur until I use Ubuntu and revert to Windows Vista. Something just messed up my clock somehow.

Anyway, did you know that a.m. and p.m. stands for ante meridiem (a.m., Latin “before noon”) and post meridiem (p.m., “after noon”) respectively? I remember asking my primary school teacher before and he couldn’t answer. We didn’t have Wikipedia that time, hahaa…
