    The problem is that the thinking was being done around 3AM
    when 9:29 pm - 2:29 am seemed like they should be 7 hours
    offset from each other.  It 'sounded' logical at the time.
    
    To make matters worse, I read the same thing twice on different
    web sites and was convinced that somebody out there had no idea
    what THEY were talking about.

    Sorry folks!
