Firsty - a great site, went into my favorites on first visit. I've got a question for the devs - what is the accuracy (in significant digits) of your conversion factors?
For most purposes 7 dps default (single data type?) you have is great, but for sensitive calculations I need about 15 (double). I've cheated so far by putting in a large value to convert and extracting all the significant digits I need - but that is limited by the conversion factors.
Could you recommend someplace with high-accuracy conversion factors perchance?
Thank you and my apologies if the info exists elsewhere.

Computers do not work well with Real numbers. So a very good math function library is needed for 7+ significant digit accuracy.
