I don't believe that, despite all the hype, it is the end of the decade. We count from 1 to 10 and not 0 to 9. That means the decade will end 12/31/20.
Just food for thought.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Does that mean the year 2000, was the end of the decade of the 1990's, or 1999 was the end?

Inquiring minds want to know...Lol.

If one only counts from 1 they have omitted 365 days/ 52 weeks/ or 12 month which are required to get to 1 year.

What happens to fractions such as 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, etc.? Can one get to 1 without them? Can one get from 1 to 2 without fractions? Do they not exist?

Food for thought.

If you were born on Jan 1, 2001 you would not be 10 until it hit Jan 1, 2011.
The first day of a month is not 0, it's 1 so that just happens to be how we count. Day 1 to the end of the 10th year in our current history would have Dec. 31, 0010 and not 0009.
Again, just fun conversation that likely 1/2 the Country will disagree and the other 1/2 don't care!

Do not cut the board to length. The extra on both ends will take the issues you might have.

Re snipe, I nearly build one of those long feed tables that passes right thru the planer. But a buddy tried it, and while it significantly reduced the amount of snipe from his Delta, there was still some there. So I didn't build one.

Usually when planing, I'm doing several planks or boards, and send them thru with the front edge of the 2nd board, right up tight against the 'butt' of the one ahead. This with a sacrificial piece before the first and after the last. Sometimes you need 2 folks... This will eliminate all snipe on the good wood.

With short pieces where I definitely don't want any snipe, I use a hot glue gun to glue on some strips that will protrude from both ends of the work, so they take the snipe cuts. Then just knock them off with a hammer, and scrape any remaining glue off the edges. PIA, but it works well.

Am looking forward to how you like your new machine.

The current Christian calendar is accounted from 0 as being the birth of Jesus. A.D., in the year of our Lord. Today is recommend as being 2,000 years since His birth.


"A.D. An abbreviation used with a date, indicating how many years have passed since the birth of Jesus. The abbreviation may appear before the date (a.d. 1988), or it may appear after the date (1988 a.d.). It stands for anno Domini, a Latin phrase meaning “in the year of our Lord.” (Compare b.c.)

So what does Dec. 25th refer to on the Christian calendar? Is that just a random day selected to celebrate the virgin birth or something else? If year 0 was December 25th, how does that relate to the current calendar and the current decade calculations?

"In 1582, when Pope Gregory XIII introduced his Gregorian calendar, Europe adhered to the Julian calendar, first implemented by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. Since the Roman emperor's system miscalculated the length of the solar year by 11 minutes, the calendar had since fallen out of sync with the seasons"

To answer your question it is a guesstimation of the pope. Although the current calendar is more accurate as far as the seasons go the religious holidays are the guest work of the pope. To be Biblically accurate the birth of Jesus was 2-6 years earlier than 0 than the current calendar established it to be. We could well be in the year 2022-2026 from the birth of Jesus.
