Pedant’s Corner.

I am expecting that on-line reduced prices are available any time on the 15th?

It is just that “midnight is tomorrow” in my book. Midnight is 00:00h by the 24hour clock, so midnight belongs at the start of the day not the end, as there is no 24:00h when using the 24 hour system.

Examination questions regarding times always use other times than 12am and 12pm because they can be misleading to students. Midday is neither before nor after the meridian, so neither ‘am’ or ‘pm’ - it is the meridian!

Perhaps no need to go into different time zones - we’ll stick to the Greenwich longitude!

No WARCO at this "do" either crying. On the positive side there may be a little more room to move about!

As Midnight is a dimensionless divider between two days it is strictly not one day or another.

Under ISO 8601 00:00 is midnight at the start of a day, 24:00 is midnight at the end of a day. the fact that 00:00 Saturday is the same as 24:00 Friday is irrelevant.
