    Ok, so three weeks ago the east of America was 5 hours behind us. Our clocks went forward by an hour so the difference was six hours. Yours just went forward (a week ago?) but now you're 4 hours behind us? So as I type it's 11:53 here but 7:53 over there? I'm just trying to figure out where this extra hour is from. Do your clocks go forward by two hours?

    I fudged up. It's -4 from GMT and I'm +1 from GMT. So five hours difference.

    But it was 11:50, not morning. :oops:

    But I was just about to leave for work, so I'll use the excuse that my brain wasn't switched on. :mrgreen:

    Anything pre-12:00 is still morning :D Plus, aren't you just coming off vacation? Then you have the double whammy of vacation mode + Monday which allows for extra excuses! :mrgreen:

    Well, and I'm a bit thick. That always works as an excuse/reason.

    Well... to confuse the $#!+ out of everyone of you (except fellow zonies), Arizona never changes the clock. I believe Hawaii is not observing that as well.
