In my analysis of the OTT/UST relationship there appears to be some discrepancy as to when UST would officially start being used. This is important as all future dates will be based of this transition so we best have it done right. If the Julian Calendar and Anno Domini are still the basis for OTT then the 31st of December, 5050 would be the 7th day of 3rd Andiv 2067.
5050 - 2220 = 2830
2830 x 365 = 1,032,950
1,032,950 + 707 (leap years) = 1,033,657
1,033,657 / 500 = 2067.314
0.314 x 500 = 157
157 / 50 (Days per Andiv) = 3 Andiv 7 daysWhich would mean that 01/01/5051 OTT would be 08/03/2067 UST (D/M/Y). That contrasts the 2069 UST on Time Keeping Reform of 5050 and 2065.9/2066 on Union Standard Month. This would make 2067 a short year. Wouldn't it be more likely to have the transition on the first day of 2067 or 2068, which would give the OTT a short year and create a symbolic dominance to the new UST?
Wouldn't the "Old Era" and "New Era" on Time Keeping Reform of 5050 be redundant as the old records would keep their original OTT codes and all new records would use the new UST codes. Using O.E. and N.E. would replace the OTT and UST respectively. Just as A.D./C.E. became OTT and is now left behind for UST.
Why did those who still kept OTT skip Dec 31st? I can't see the reason as it would mess up the OTT they were keeping. Wasn't the point of the Reform to force all official timekeeping to be done on the same new scale? And encourage informal use too? I also can't see the Military resisting the date change as days are still the same length, they are just measured slightly different and they can keep calling them what they want.
And what about the order that the date is expressed? D/M/Y, M/D/Y, Y/M/D? Are weeks included like on Union Standard Week and Union Standard Month?
Is there a reason that the 20 hour day is broken into 1-10 early and 1-10 late? Doesn't that only serve to perpetuate confusion? It would only be useful on a local time schedule, which for the purposes of the Reform, wouldn't matter since local time would be based of the day/night cycle if there was one, or one nearby.
