caissa clock
Is the clock time which Caissa displays GMT? I thought it was but I'm not sure now.

...seems to be from this end...we are GMT+9.30...the clock's presently showing Local Time 6.30 am Friday morning and 9.00 pm Thursday night UTC, which would be right

I {buzzkill}, am only conjecturing here; But since the newer acronymn, "UTC"; Means the same thing as the 'former' "GMT"; Maybe some world time-keeping, bearacracy/'powers-that-be' in France, objected to having to reference, anything to do with England!?; Even if only in the form of a one letter initial, in an acronymn!? --..{Ie. 'Greenwich' England; As in: 'GMT'}

UTC
{Coordinated Universal Time, Temps Universel Coordonné} The international time standard {formerly Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT}. Zero hours UTC is midnight in Greenwich, England, which is located at 0 degrees longitude. Everything east of Greenwich {up to 180 degrees} is later in time; everything west is earlier. There are 42 time authorities around the world that are constantly synchronizing with each other. In the U.S., the time authorities are located at the U.S. Naval Observatory {USNO} and the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST). See NTP.

Re: caissa clock
Yeah he seems to know a lot of things. But this is definitely GMT time the official Caissa time.
