Very strange!

My Dapper is dated 10th March and has all the updates to yesterday.  As 
far as I know it is Flight5. Even if it's not, I would have thought that 
the upgrades should have sorted it.

I am retired now, but when I was at work, I used the 24 hour system 
every day for 34 years. So it's no problem for me to use it, but it may 
be for others who are not used to it. It's just that I think it looks 
better seeing, for instance, 2:15 in the top corner of the screen rather 
than 14:15 .

Perhaps the developers will reinstate the 12 hour choice by the time 
Dapper final comes out - let's hope so!
