That one has been festering for a number of years, I heard about it first time back in 1990 or so. The scotts are absolutely livid about the entire notion and I belive the welch are not too happy either. Now that EU got extended way east I think everybody expected the silly notion of "one timezone for all of EU" to die a rapid death but that might just wishfull thinking. -- Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20 [EMAIL PROTECTED] | TCP/IP since RFC 956 FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
