    I heard a commentator on MSNBC, just as they were getting ready to come
    out 
    of the nine-minute hold, that NASA made a slight adjustment to the
    liftoff time 
    of six seconds and that they were now aiming for a launch "straight-up
    at 
    10:39 a.m. EDT"  I assume that "straight up" meant 10:39:00, as opposed
    to 
    10:39:06.  
    
    It seems that MSNBC adjusted their on-screen clock for this, because
    there 
    indeed was about a six-second difference between their clock and those
    of CNN 
    and FOX.  
    
    Once they got below 9 minutes, all three networks trained their cameras
    on 
    the big countdown clock at KSC as the "official" time.
