## Documentation on the different Time formats.

## Arvelie is an alphabetic date format.

The **Arvelie calendar** has **26 months** of **14 days** each.

Each month has **2 weeks** of **7 days**, and each month's name is one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. The 365th day of the year is the *Year Day*(+00), preceded by the *Leap Day*(+01) on leap years.

The purpose of this special calendar is to record daily activity logs starting at year 0 when the tracking started. For example, this wiki was initiated in 2006, which is its year 0. The arvelie date 13A05, is equivalent to January 6th of the 14th year.

**01D07**2007-02-18**02A00**2008-01-01**14C01**2009-01-29**03+00**2010-12-31

To calculate the day of the year, convert the month's letter to a value, starting with 0 for A, multiply by 14 and add the day of the month. For example, J05 is equal to `(+ 5 (* 9 14))`

, or 131.

## Neralie is a decimal time format.

The **Neralie clock** has two groups of 3 digits, called the *beat* & the *pulse*. A beat contains 1000 pulses, and equivalent to **86.4 seconds**. A day is 1000 beats, or a million pulses. A pomodoro of 20 beats, is equivalent to 28 minutes 48 seconds.

**6:00**250:000**12:00**500:000**18:00**750:000

Neralie time is similar to the Swatch Internet Time decimal clock, but uses 6 decimal points and a rectangular watchface. You can find a pascal implementation for macintosh, in the clock repository.
