# The timelord units module contains all the basic conversions from seconds

module Units
# Our basic unit of measurement is the second, because that's what most
# people expect.
SECOND = 1
MINUTE = SECOND * 60
HOUR = MINUTE * 60
DAY = HOUR * 24
WEEK = DAY * 7
# Everything after this is a little tricky as calender months can actually
# be entirely different sizes from other months. This attempts to average it
# out, because a standard month is 4 weeks long.
MONTH = WEEK * 4
# The same goes for years, so we actually do it by the standard calendar
# year length.
YEAR = DAY * 365
