My friend is ahead of time because he's on mountain time and Arizona doesn't
recognize daylight savings time. Arizona is weird. His msgs always end up on
top of lists waiting for 'time to catch up'. Most time stamps are put on by
people's servers, not the people themselves and lots of ISPs are just
strange. I set my home computer 1/2 hour ahead trying to fool myself into
showing up places on time, but I'm usually down in time stamp ordered lists.
My ISP or something.
