That would be a pain...<sigh>

I might just go with your "exit 0" idea.

Now you've done it! You got me thinking about it... <sigh> And just when
I can't find my ibuprofen <whimper>

Actually I didn't know "I could" define an arbitory local timezone...
But if that means the system time would be presented to mail servers
etc... in such a way as to appear to be in sync with the internet.
While my local time as displayed by the clock display on the kde panel
and/or by the "date" command could be consistent with my employers
clock, then I need to know more...

Could you point me at a basic how-to doc for defining local timezones???
