Except it hasn't really been that hard. Not like miles vs. kilometers. Fahrenheit is used in the US... and four other countries with a combined area about the size of Connecticut.

This is my weakness. I'll gladly write a script or macro to accomplish a repetitive task even though doing the task by hand would take half the time. Coincidently, this is why I use Vim, because it reduces the distance between manual and macro editing. Of course, it took me weeks to set up and learn to use Vim. That's time I'll likely never recoup.
