Re: Phone lines ready for 2012 NORAD Tracks Santa (Phone #)

They told my daughter he was in New Hampshire and would be here in about an hr. Then the news said he was just spotted in Australia

Obviously NORAD was right, and the new was wrong.

(Damn timezones can be confusing, my in-laws are in Sweden and, even worse, my sister is in Australia, fun "times" ha ha!)

Multiple clocks in Vista/Win7/Win8

There's websites for that

»www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

Also if you're using Vista or above you can configure two additional clocks to show you the date/time in other timezones.

Oh, they're not confusing for *me* I dealt with my then future husband being 9 hours ahead like it was clockwork (ha ha) when he was still living in Sweden. Nothing like coming home from work, taking a nap until it was time to chat with the guy

Pretty much! (Well the temp more the an the mileage )

(It's the in-laws that are the problem -- it's always lovely getting a phone call at 5a because it's 2p for them!)
