To Ms. Walters,

When I tried the link a few minutes ago, it was working. However, we're
always glad to check out any potential errors.

To the SIPB NetBST dev team:

The page cited in the subject line seems to be under your control. This page
is an outdated version of Paul Eggert's definitive page describing the Olson
tz database, which is at http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm. Your page is
version 7.42; his page is currently version 8.15. My link checker found
eleven dead links on your page, and only three on Mr. Eggert's. I suggest
that you link to Mr. Eggert's page, which is well maintained, instead of
presenting an obsolete version that may be a disservice to some of your

Yours,      Gwillim Law

Geography Teacher in a small school in New England.  While I was doing some
research in preparing a lesson plan, I noticed that on this
page...http://web.mit.edu/~netbsd/src/lib/libc/time/tz-link.htm, you have a
link to http://www.phys.uu.nl/~vgent/idl/idl.htm.  I don't think that page
exists any longer, or maybe the site was down when I tried it.
> In my research I found this
which has some very good resources and information on the international date
line.  I think it could make a good addition, or replacement of the link
that didn't work, for your page.
