I've obviously had too much coffee this morning and really need to get a
job - being stuck in the house gets me all worked up ;^)
I'll take your text and put that instead of my monday-morning version. I
had a laugh. Okay I'm just human too.
And that daylight thing indeed amazes me. It also means I'm gonna be yet
another timezone further from my family - really screwing things up
badly - for instance - now I can actually reach people in europe during
office hours. That will be nearly impossible with the new timezones.
enough offtopic, back to procrastinating.
DISLCAIMER: I'm not a laywer - I really don't even have a job right now ;^)
