Have you ever had the need to convert a time format to 2.563 hours into something more human-readable? If so, you're not alone! In fact, this is a common task that many people need to do on a regular basis.

Luckily, there's an easy way to do this - and it doesn't require any special software or tools. All you need is a basic calculator! Here's how it works:

First, divide the number of hours by 60 (or 6 if you're working in minutes). So, in our example case, 2.563 divided by 60 equals 0.041666667 (or 4 minutes and 16 seconds). Now take that number and multiply it by 100 (or 10 if you're working in seconds). So 0.041666667 multiplied by 100 equals 4.16667 (or 4 hours and 16 minutes).

And voila - your time has now been converted from Hours:Minutes:Seconds format into something more human-readable!

Better Solution

beepmyclock.com has a handy tool to convert decimal time into something that is more readable and easier to explain.

It's a handy tool to have when you need to know the conversion.

This online tool will help you convert decimal hours to hours, minutes and seconds.

RansomWare Attack

Ransomware attacks are on the rise and pose a serious threat to both individuals and businesses. Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts data on a victim's computer, then demands payment in order to decrypt the data. Victims can be forced to pay ransom in order to regain access to their files, or face permanent loss of access if they do not pay.

Ransomware can have a devastating impact on businesses, including loss of revenue and damage to reputation. In some cases, ransomware attacks have caused companies to go out of business. Ransomware also poses a risk to individual users, who may lose important personal files if they are infected with ransomware.

Check out the map put together by comparitech.com where Ransomware have been successful.

Website Description

Website Information

RTG helps you fill your brain with useless information

Random Trivia Generator seems like a contradiction because trivia can already be seen as random. For instance, why do you need to know which bird lays the largest eggs? You don't, but it's always fun to know the answer in case there is no Internet connection around and someone desperately needs to know. P.S., the answer is an ostrich.
