    Hi all,

    Just a thought, but since, as a community we used both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales, i feel that it may be useful to have a conversion chart / app on BYC so that members that are unfamiliar with one scale can readily translate into a scale that they are most comfortable with.

    I would have thought that members that post on issues relating to incubators may find it useful, but also generally. I know that i sometimes have to use a temperature conversion site.

    Either ways, its not a Eureka idea, just a suggestion that I hope may help us communicate more effectively.

    Nifty chick suggested i post the idea here to test the waters on the idea.

    Thanks

    It would help me :D Does not take a lot to get me confused.com when it comes to the temp conversion!! I do know for the incubators 37.5C is 99.5F and that's about it.

    Good idea Chris! I would use one if it was right here handy and I didn't have to leave BYC to find a chart. [​IMG]

    I think that would be very useful (for me). I also only know the 37.5C = 99.5F but that's all I can remember.
