And I call your attention to the fact that (1) I wrote an email to Eternal
September suggesting there was a daylight time problem, and (2) I did no
changes to this computer between last night and now.
Thus, to the folks who doubted me and took your textbook theory and threw it
at me, you might re-examine what you post and not make yourselves look so
foolish in the future.

Whilst *you* have been frustrated, David, your 'problem' has been
interesting for others to read about. It's good that you have not got
angry, especially as I understood a little of your background before you
started this thread.
Did you speak to Ray Banana about the possible server fault at E-S
causing your clock error?

Ya.... I've had it too, I'm going to go read the paper.

How *great* is it when web browsing as an administrator? :oD
Windows firewall designers had no false belief about stopping actions by
malware you already allowed to execute on the machine. It *does* have
filtering capability, but the designers knew that malware with admin (or
better) privileges could easily circumvent them.
Before I worried about malware shutting off the firewall, I would worry
about them running malware with admin rights.

First, I don't have a clock error. My clock was and is correct. Second, I
didn't speak to anyone at ES. I simply emailed them on their form. So, they
probably jostled something with their foot and everything is fine now.
