Sometimes, I just want to throw my hands up in the air, cry out in disgust, and give up. Apparently, these people in Britain
have never heard of NTP
, the Network Time Protocol, clients for which have been available for Win9X for *years*... and which *works*
Can we *stop* inventing the wheel, now? It rolls, already.

Time looks at Dubya's Veep choice.
Here's what's interesting:
"In fact, by (the time of Sen. John Danforth's interview) Bush not only knew he wanted Cheney to be his Vice President; he also knew Cheney would say yes. But that was information that neither man shared with Danforth. He and 10 other would-be running mates had laid themselves bare before Cheney and his vetting team."
Why would Bush continue to put people through an exhaustive
screening process after he already made up his mind... Unless he was digging for dirt on rivals?
J. Edgar Hoover lives.

Haven't really tried it yet, but RedGorilla
sounds like a badly-named but useful tool for people who need to track their hours so they can accurately bill clients.

With all this preoccupation with Y2K and the march of time lately, this doesn't seem to be too out of place. British Prime Minister Tony Blair figures it's time for the UK to start capitalizing on GMT
as the standard timestamp of worldwide e-commerce. Personally, as goofy as it is, I'm starting to warm up to Swatch's internet time
concept. By the way, this was posted @ 831.
