Coffee Break Training: Ancient 'Julian Calendar' - A Simple Scheduling and Tracking Tool [open pdf - 0B]
"Introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C., the Julian calendar is simply a continuous count of days, with almost 2.5 million occurring since its inception. It can be used as a handy planning and management tool for a variety of training projects. Although the Julian calendar was replaced for everyday use by the Gregorian calendar, Julian dates still are widely used as time variables within astronomical software and by institutions that need a quick and easy method of tracking--by dates--appointments, meetings, or milestones. A 'Day of Year' version will start on day 1 and end on day 365, providing a number for each month and day, simplifying all scheduling processes."
