Swatch Internet Time - no need for govs to set TZ's and DST!

Free Talk Live starts @41 and ends @166, no matter the time zone, but the fact that it observes DST screws things up...

The ad-free podcast is about 82 beats long.

The notion is decent, but it would be orders of magnitude simpler, cheaper, faster, and less stupid to simply universally adopt GMT.

That would make things weird.

I like the Swatch time thing, but it's hard for me to remember to convert it back to the other time models. Either way, it's good for some computer functions that are time based though.

I think it would be cool to have both... That way I could switch to Internet Time in real life eventually.

But really, kind of useless...
