Of course, we *all* know that nothing of any real importance exists
outside the 5-mile limit of the continental United States of America,
and therefor the probability approaches unity that 'EDT' is 'Eastern
United States Daylight Savings Time'.

As for "UTC" - only if you mention it as 'Zulu-time', and then only
those who watch JAG or NCIS or some other 'Military
Intelligence' (oxymoron alert!) type TV show.

Yeah, ditto and likewise.

veering onto a tangent, I'm pretty sure I have (more than) enough
american 'culture' (second oxymoron alert!) to deal with, without it
being 'free'. Though, you do get what you pay for... ;')
