    in the control panel, open Regional and Language Options. On the Regional tab, click Customize, then the Time tab.
    h=12 hour
    H=24 hour

    What's wrong with 24 hour time?

    24 hour time doesn't exist with analog readout - I think it comes form that and the common fact that people say six or seven - they know if it is dark....

    You'd be marked out as some military dork if you said 1800 or 1900....

    Speaking of time when are you going to admit the server is fast? :p Or should I go in and set it right myself? I'm fed up with having my machines synch to the wrong time!

    Or that you like Star Trek, but most likely a military dork.

    If it was wrong I'd fix it. As it's not there's no need.
