Well, in an effort to be honest, I am not going to just delete my shamefully embarrassing post about the fake "gmail custom time." The Chief was quick to remind me today that it was April Fool's Day. He asked me if I had even read what they wrote. I said yes. He asked me if I'd read the equation they used. I said yes. But if you know me, you know that math is not just not my forte, it's my hell. He told me that he was tipped off by their explanation for how they managed to "fix" this time issue: "Gmail utilizes an e-flux capacitor to resolve issues of causality." Apparently the flux capacitor is from the Back to the Future car. So sue me for not being a huge Back to the Future fan. Oh well, they got me. They got me good. I'm embarrassed at how incensed I sounded. You hear that, G-mail? Good one! I've been had. Now you all know who you can play April Fool's Day tricks on. I can't remember for two consecutive minutes what day it is. Blah!
