Somehow my clock got off when I updated it with an atomic server.

Then I looked at the control panel -> time zone wizard.

In trying to figure out which way the world turns, I got it in my head that the time zone wizard is off - where there is a + it should be a - and visa versa

At the risk of looking like the kind of guy who can't figure out if I'm spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Tell me if the chart is off or if I'm off.

Very Happy That's what GuestToo has been telling me for ages, but I haven't done anything about it ...I guess I need more people to come along and say the same thing!

Sometimes things really are backwards. In Australia the bath water always goes down the drain clockwise. In my part of the world it never does that.

G'day Bruce B

We here in Western Australia are sooooooooooooo laid back we don't use clocks

There is a place about 400k (240miles) from where I live called Penrenjori

Now that place is REALLY laid back

But the wildflowers are magnificent

Hey Stokey!
You're from Perth!
I'm in Perth right at this moment, at my daughter's place. I especially visit her when
I have to upload a big file, as she has adsl, whereas out where I live, the phone line
only manages 23 Kbits/sec -- I think it was installed about 1960.
I'll take off for home tomorrow. ...you don't want to know what I spend on petrol
(for the yanks: "petrol" is "gas").
