I'm a newbie and I'm trying to make a decimal clock (10 units = 1 day base 10 clock). I'd like to go down to 1/10000 of a day as by smallest unit (kinda like a second is in our base twelve system) which would be 8.64 seconds. Interger math doesn't allow the decimal so I thought if I could get something to resonate at 100hz then 864 counts would equal my 1/10000 of a day. I'm told using the stamp alone isn't very accurat. Any ideas? anyone know of some sort of IC timer that I could use. Using a divide by 10 circuit would take several to reduce a 1mHz resonator, I'd like to keep it simple
