A Small Update

Just as an update to my post of a few days ago, here's a link to a Wikipedia article on the metric system in the USA.

I note it says that construction has been the industry slowest to adopt metric units. I guess that explains why, when I wanted metric measurements on something I was looking at in Home Depot, I could not find a single measuring device with metric units on it.

Anyway, it sounds as if we're going to see more all-metric product labels in the near future, so I guess that's some progress.
