...and thanks to ado and Paul for keeping us mainly free of politics 
for all that time, despite the political sources and decisions behind 
the changes; to kre for contributions and keeping everything updated 
during difficult times; and all the many posters who dig up at times 
fascinating quirks behind and references to the bald data documenting 
and implementing the changes.

We also just passed the 20th anniversary of the 1996 implementation 
of the last EU common time zones rule change.

And it will soon be the 10th anniversary of the US 2007 time zones 
rule change, which since its announcement in 2005, provoked a flurry 
of legislation across North America.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
