Anyone else get a Doctor Who disappearing TARDIS mug for Christmas? ;-)
-- Richard
P.S. I also got a sundial (just in case the ITU decision goes the wrong way).

Quoting Rob Seaman <seaman at noao.edu>:

>> Currently local time zones range from Christmas Island, on Z+14:00,

>> to Midway Island, on Z-11:00 (I use Z to avoid the UTC/UT/GMT

>> argument). So there's always somewhere where it's not Sunday.


> That should make Doctor Who aficionados happy. He never lands on

> Sunday. (Perhaps he's trying to avoid leap seconds, with the

> implication that my suggestion is guaranteed soon to be adopted :-)


> By all means let's gather more requirements from locations ranging

> Midway to Christmas.
