Dataflex gives you an extra 1.5 inches more than other languages :D

Where do you see Inches?

But while I can start a discussion on this it is interesting that this linear goes to 34 cm and not to a more regular value as 30 or 35 or 50 cm.

Most rulers are 30cm this one is 34cm

There are 2.54 cm to the inch so 4/2.54 = 1.57480315 inches

Or has my eye-sight made me use the wrong scale ? :D

Which is about 30cm.

I think Germany in 1990 made it bigger to be able to print the information below in a readable way. Most like Matthias can tell us more because it is possible that rulers in Germany are 34cm based.

From time to time I am still using this classic. He is longer than the A4 format, so it can be very useful for reports.

I have an 18" stainless steel ruler marked in line printer character positions. Still gets a raised eyebrow every so often.

And, I can't find it right now, but somewhere I have the Famous Blue mouse mat with all the 'new' function keys.

In Germany, too, the norm for a school ruler is 30 cm.
This ruler fits exactly on my old (very old :-) ) Cherry keyboard, which was the standard in 1990. ... and there had to be space for the logo.
