    Hallo Nancy!

    I see your date-time stamp was right on

    It used "LANG=en_US.utf8 TZ=EST5EDT date --date=@${unixtime}" to generate it. I noticed using LANG=en_US.utf8 causes the 12 hour clock AM/PM to be outputted rather than the usual 24 hour clock (eg LANG=en_CA.utf8).

    MK>> ... Wherever you are, it's the place you need to be.

    Probably true... whether or not it always feels like it... :)

    It is a Zen thing. If the extra-special datetime stamp had been off more than a second then the tagline would have been, "This message is $((${cyberdate}-${now})) sec too early/late."

    Het leven is goed,
    Maurice
