complete aside and only mostly off topic :
Am I the only person who thinks that timezones and especially
daylight savings time are completely moronic
It would just be so much simpler if everyone operated on GMT.
I also wonder, that if one day when we end up living on other
planets, are we going to insist on basing
all our time keeping devices on the speed that some other celestial
body spins on it's axis and orbits
around some other celestial body.
The entire idea of a decimal time system also appeals to me, and why
i really liked the idea of swatch internet
But then again, when I was watching the animatrix and the robots
named their first city '01' I was like "err. shouldn't that be 00"
