at least the benefit of being in france is that local time!=system time; its
very easy coding in the UK in the winter months to write code that only
works if the local time is GMT, then suddenly along comes april and
everything breaks.


Mind you, netscape did something similar in NS1 or NS2, the MFC
CTimeSpan.GetDays() cant handle summertime/wintertime transitions either as
it gets the #of elapsed days wrong...
