Bash alias to output the current Swatch Internet Time

alias beats='echo '\''@'\''$(TZ=GMT-1 date +'\''(%-S + %-M * 60 + %-H * 3600) / 86.4'\''|bc)'
Output the current time in Swatch “Internet Time”, aka .beats. There are 1000 .beats in a day, and @0 is at 00:00 Central European Standard Time. This was briefly a thing in the late 1990s. More details: The alias is rather quote heavy to protect the subshell, so the bare command is: echo '@'$(TZ=GMT-1 date +'(%-S + %-M * 60 + %-H * 3600) / 86.4'|bc)

Very nice. I really like your blog. I learned a lot of new things from your post. You may refer to my site to know Sleeping Bag Alternatives for camping tents. The liner of the sleeping bag is a good idea, even with the sleeping bag. Plain silk or thermolite liner can fit in a bag smaller than your coffee cup and much easier to wash than your entire sleeping bag. But on their own, the weighted ship, commonly used to add extra warmth to a winter sleeping bag, might be the right option in your sleeping bag.
