I just thought, Buddy - have you or any of your group been boning up on Metric Time conversion? We are supposed to start bringing it in on June 21st (the longest day of the year).
I'll try to find a couple of links for you.
Here - try these, if you haven't looked into it already:

zapatopi.net/metrictime.html (external - login to view)
I might be able to give you some tips, if you're stuck on anything - I havent quite got it down pat yet - I find myself still converting "back" a fair bit, but then I spend a lot of time on largely American sites.
OH! And btw - don't confuse it with "decimal time"; they seem similar, but are not the same. We are going with the French Metric system, for obvious reasons. They may be a bit "wingy" in their politics, but their centuries-old study of time is the best in the world.
This will explain the difference:
