    It always comes out that way for me, too. I'm always typing "Monestary", scrolling up, reading the The Monastery Gates link, swapping my vowels. But Merriam-Webster says vroom spelt it rite, so I'll just keep telling my brain it is wrong and one day it will start listening to me.

    Oh, since the rules for when (as in which day of which month) daylight savings time (aka summer time) kicks in and out vary by country, state, etc., I can understand the Monastery not "supporting" automatic switching between the two cases. Your "local time" setting is just a simple, fixed offset from UTC, which doesn't skip hours here and there. So add the Monastery to the list of clocks you have to adjust twice a year if this matters to you. ):

      There's the problem, you colonials and your oddball spellings.
