Between Houston and Austin on December 18, 2012, I overheard the following breif conversation between Houston Center and another aircraft:

"Houston Center, can you give me a current altimeter setting?"

"At your altitude, it is 29.92."

"Uhhhh -- yeah."

[A brief pause.]

"Guess I will see that one in the back of IFR magazine next month."
