Kiloshi JoTraGo 15:20

Kilosall good here ty and there15:21
JoTraGoNot exactly but haven't been around for a while, Do you use GNUCash by any chance15:21
Kilosnope but maybe someone here does15:22
Kilosonly been very quiet15:22
Kilosmost likely theyll return tonight15:22
Kiloswhat is GNUCash15:22
JoTraGoOK, on  a more general note, do you have an opinion on the strict use of the comma as a decimal point when the English ZA coutry / location is selected in ubuntu15:23
JoTraGoGNUCash is a fairly comprehensive open source double entry bookkeeping system15:23
Kilosusing the comma where15:24
Kiloswhere do you see commas15:24
Kilosi know its used to separate channels in irc clients15:24
Kiloswhen superfly gets here he can explain things15:27
Kiloshi Cryterion_ 15:27
Kiloscan you answer this15:27
superflyKilos: he's talking about locale settings15:27
superfly1 000 vs 1,00015:27
KilosJoTraGo> OK, on  a more general note, do you have an opinion on the strict use of the comma as a decimal point when the English ZA coutry / location is selected in ubuntu15:27
superflyand 1.0 vs 1,015:28
superflyand while the South African standard is still 1 000,0, because the USA uses 1,000.0 most of SA does too. Even the online banking15:28
Kilosty superfly i dont even notice things like that15:29
JoTraGoI am actually referring to the DECIMAL Point not the Thousands separator. I find that with SA regional setting I have to use Comma as the decimal point in Libre office Calc, and GNU Cash. Whereas, for instance in online banking in SA the apps use the DOT as the decimal point. THis causes me some confusion and has already led to a R30,000 error when I accidentally put a comma instead of a Dot on a bank transfer.15:33
JoTraGoI would like to find out if it is possible to edit the ZA Regional setting and revert it to Comma for Thousands Separator and DOT for decimal point. Whilst not strictly correct it is more consistent with everyday practice15:35
superflyJoTraGo: actually, I was referring to both since both are part of the standard.15:37
superflyJoTraGo: don't bother editing, just change to the US15:37
JoTraGoYes I could do that, but then I have to edit all the other things in US for ZA, Time Zone, Currency location etc. I like using the ZA locale as it feeds through to many areas of ubuntu.  I though maybe some fellow South Africans may have come a cross the same issue, and have a neat solution.15:46
Kilosmaybe gremble has worked something out15:56
MaNIhuh, since when is comma the South African standard for decimal points, even at school and university everything used .16:04
MaNII'm pretty sure I've not once in my life run into anywhere in the country where anyone actually used a comma for this purpose16:04
MaNIoh wow, it does look like we supposedly adopted it in "1974" - guess the government forgot to actually tell the population16:13
Kilossjoe MaNI were you born then already16:43
MaNInah I wasn't around then - I'm an 80s baby16:53
MaNIbut going on real world adoption it sure looks like one of those things where they changed it but the population ignored them :p16:54
