Mr. Olson,
      I found a reference to your timezone work in Bill
Thoen's page.  I poked around in the ftp server and noticed
five files, all nice and big!  I experienced difficulty in
extracting the tzarchive.gz. so I thought I would contact
you before trying any of the other files.
      I am interested in obtaining a file of the geocoded
boundaries of the time zones.  I realize that time zones are
marvelously complex and frequently changing, so I don't
expect perfection.  Since I have access to Arc/Info, I
prefer the GIS approach to laborious entry of data into a
      Can you steer me in the right direction?
