Journal: Time

Journal by BigBlackDog
Recently, I've had cause to look up the time zones in force at various points on the Earth. On the most part, it seems fairly resonable - as long as you like daylight saving time.

Personally, I think daylight saving time is a bit silly. It confuses things when your watch is an hour out for six months of the year.

But that's a different rant. The question here is:

What is /. time?

It seems from a quick sample (very quick), that a posters time zone (or local system time) gives her location away, to an extent.

Why can't we have SDT (Slash Dot Time)?

Where does Rob live? I don't care if that's the z-meridian. I would just like to be able to put my posts in time order with those of widely dispersed others.

Journal: (More) Bikes

Journal by BigBlackDog
Well... the plot thickens,

...and the bike is now mine!

So, having completed (half) the hazardous journey from home to work, do I have the stomach for the full thing in rush hour traffic?

I think I'll have a go tomorrow, and see how I feel...

As ever - will stay in touch. BBD

Well!

After a week of murderous traffic, admiring the architecture of 'leafy' Cheshire, I will shortly be making a come-back to the world of bikes! Lovely.

That would be motorbikes, if there was any doubt.

I've spotted a nice 'un, and I think I'll collect it this weekend.

Lets hope the wife doesn't read /. (and know who I am here)

Let you know how I get on...

Journal: China

Journal by BigBlackDog
So I'm supposed to be going to China tomorrow on behalf of my employer (any 'In Soviet China...' gags?). Only, the useless bitch at the travel agency has sent my airline tickets to Northampton... I work in Manchester.

I love to travel.

Computers are not intelligent. They only think they are.
