Interesting, but my time and date are set correctly. When I start OO
everything goes fine, the splash screen comes up and the little blue
progress bar goes across and then... the wait begins.

installed on another machine without problems. I wonder if some
settings have gone screwy. Would removing and reinstalling OO be worth
