Babylonian-Proof Time Calculator

There are times when time takes too much time to time out. Know what I mean?

Blame it on the Babylonians. Our Base 60 time system is a bear to calculate — especially if you have to calculate runtimes of segments of video.

Quick: What’s the duration between timestamp 00:18:28 and 00:45:39?

My point exactly. Trying to count that clumsy sum on your finders and toes will give your a brain hang-up more epic than Babylon’s famous gardens.

Luckily, I came across this handy, free time calculator for just such mathematical challenges. As an added plus, the calculator stores your past entries, so you can click to compute common number combos.

Nebuchadnezzar himself couldn’t ask for a better math tool. Unless, of course, he would have know about the decimal system.
