With a car battery, or a laptop / phone battery, you care about kWh per cubic cm. With a grid storage battery, the amount of space it takes up isn't that much of an issue, but you do care about about how much of the kWh you put into the battery you get back out, and how much it costs per kWh of storage.

The birth of Jesus is "year one", not "year zero". We go from 1BC (or BCE if you prefer) to 1AD (or CE) with no year zero.

We do know for a fact that we got year one wrong in our calculations. The Bible says Jesus was born during the reign of King Herod, and King Herod died in 4BC.

All the calendars I've looked at seem to agree that there should be 12 months in a year of approximately equal length, and apart from the Muslim calendar, a year is approximately the length of time it takes for the earth to rotate around the sun and the Muslim calendar is only about 11 days shorter than that.

It is most likely to happen if you change ISP, or your ISP is taken over by another company that already serves your area. For example, my ISP Telefonica O2 has been taken over by Rupert Murdoch's Sky. At some point in the next couple of months, I will be moved over from the O2 network to the Sky network, and get a different static IPV4 address.
