@Dinwar: I too have a B.S. in Physics, so unit conversions are normal for me. I barely even consider a couple powers of 10 to be a conversion. (try meters/second to furlongs/microfortnight Very Happy )

I thought about perhaps a Sonic © of links, and while it could be fun to have the copyright symbol in a unit's abbreviation... S©....I think hh is easier.

I think the hh unit is a great idea! I'd like to also suggest a 16 quantity base, as the SEGA Genesis is a 16-bit system. Besides, 10s are a boring base--we may as well try to use a interesting number base. Plus, it's sorta hexadecimal friendly! That and using metric prefixes would be fun. Only problem is one pico-Hedgehog would then be far less than one entire ring.

Then in the new "Hedgehog Friendly" Maille Code you'd say you've assembled XX.YY Kilo-Hedgehogs of rings.

Of course, we could use 42 as one Hedgehog since 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything...

Would a Mario be 8 links, then? Very Happy
