Every time I write the temperature, I’m reminded of the fact that the US is the only country on the planet that uses Fahrenheit. So, I go through this little process:
Type the temperature, let’s say 77
Move to the insert Ribbon and find the degree symbol ‘°’ or try and remember what Alt-code it is (246? ÷ no) (247? ≈ no) (248? ° Yay!)
Then I paste the 77 into Google and type ‘f’ and hope that it gives me the “Fahrenheit to Celsius” option, because I always misspell Fahrenheit by placing the ‘r’ before the ‘h’ which renders Google useless.
Then I attempt to copy the Celsius text including without all the digits to the right of the decimal point. I fail, and I get the whole thing.
I paste that into Word, trim it to one decimal and add the degree symbol again
I’ve always said: “There has to be a better way” and I finally decided to build one.
Example: 77°f (25°c)
As you can see, I also added Feet and Inches, Miles and Kilometers and Pounds and Kilograms. My plan is to add all the usual suspects, Sq. Ft, Gallons, etc. I’m putting the link on my site so I can get to it easily. Of course, it’s public and your welcome to use it. If anyone would be interested, I’d be happy to create a companion page to go the other way.
