"This site is currently off-line for maintenance.
Site was taken off line at 09:00 EST on November 8. Expected time back: 60 minutes. Reason for shutdown: Daylight Savings time clock adjustment requires 1 hour shutdown in order to preserve post time integrity."

Let's see, the site was taken down for an hour this morning to move the time stamp to standard time. But in so doing the announcement said that we also dropped back a day. :eek: So, is today yesterday but one hour ago. Or is it right now but not quite. Or.....

Don't do that to me before the coffee kicks in. :D

Sorry Greg. Nobody will be able to answer your post until at least 12:05 p.m. tomorrow due to the change. Or is it a.m.??? ;)

(I think the announcement should have said November 9th instead of the 8th.)


P.S. Why does 12 p.m. come before 1 p.m.? :confused:

It's simple, TFL owns the space-time continuum. Tomorrow yesterday will be today, so the announcement was correct but was simply out of phase one heliogeo rotation so that we would know what will happen after the fact. Just another service from the best forum on the 'net.

That's what makes this site the best.
Manipulation of the space-time continuum.:)

Or should I say, that's what will make it the best yesterday?

According to three wise men known as the Kingston Trio.......You can't get ToMorrow today for the train to morrow left yesterday.
