Sorry, it was kinda late when I posted. I forgot about it, then
remembered and had to get my copy. Then I realized no one had posted to
the list about it. It will be taken down at 23:59:59 GMT March 4th. That
would be just before 7:00 pm EST.
That's fine to correct me. If everyone were on UTC to begin with, we
wouldn't have these problems.
PS. It's not related, but 23:59:60 broke the 30 Gb Zunes. Silly Microsoft!
