I see that my friend, Brian, has appended a clock feature to his blog. It gives the time both in the UK and California, which kind of reminds us that whatever they are finishing, we are probably thinking about starting (meals excepted, of course).
I'm not even sure why I even brought this up, other than this whole time zone thing is really a bother. I'm sure it made sense once, like back when transportation and communication moved at a snail's pace. What I'm getting at is that I really don't understand why it is necessary for the incremental time changes around the globe. We are already using UTC in many instances. Why not just adopt it universally?
