El Reg fires up online standards converter

Want to know your height in linguine? Click here

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Well, you asked for it, and now you've got it - we're delighted to announce the launch today of a Reg standards converter which can, at the click of a mouse button, tell you your height in linguine, your other half's weight in Jubs or indeed the speed at which you're currently travelling as a percentage of the theoretical maximum velocity of a sheep in a vacuum.

Bear in mind that while the converter has been checked and rechecked by a crack team from the Vulture Central Standards Soviet, it may require tweaks. If you spot anything seriously amiss, post a comment to this story and we'll investigate.

Oh yes, nearly forgot - the converter is right here. Enjoy, and be sure to bookmark for future reference. ®
