There is 24 different times exists over the world at the same
time. ;) (15 meridian for each hour groups)
if we didt use meridian group,
than 24*3600+60*60+60 times will be there for each time seconds.
(1000 times more if u use milliseconds)
So, TIME is not mean only of "TIME of DAY".
TIME is TIME and you can't resticted it as "TIME OF DAY"
It may be "TIME of PROCCESS","TIME of IDLE","TIME of USAGE",
Our bird, FireBird cant fly to out of ionospher yet, so
there is no risc about "TIME of MARSDAY" format incompatibility.
I think it is a problem about english language speakers.
It is a irregular language and you need to create new orjinal words
for all new terms.
In our language TIME doesn't mean of a timestamp value point.

I calcuted the "REQUIRED TIME FOR THIS WORK".
You can add this time to any another concejtural "TIME OF DAY" or
"TIMESTAMP OF CALENDAR" to find out when will work finish.
or you can substract it from any another concejtural "TIME OF DAY" or
"TIMESTAMP OF CALENDAR" to find out when work should start.
TIME works both of us, there is no need to fight about terms.
