    Bravo! ... though I once read (on a D. Conway related limrick page (he's everywhere!!)) that, poetically, plurals aren't really considered rhymes. so:
    stuck localtime in an array
    ??? ... actually, I thought I posted this *yesterday* ;->


      I considered saying "localtime in an array" but it doesn't flow as well. The "in an a" is a bit too many "N" sounds in a row. :)
