Yes, actually I am. Something to do with keeping time via pulsars, same as keeping dates synchronized. Would it not be that precise?

Anyway, yeah, in this TU there is a set time/date for those who want to use it - doesn't work out so well w planets which have their own day/night schedules, especially if not conveniently on 24 hour rotation as Devonia was.

I think I wrote previously that ships actually use GMT, although they don't call it that or even know the origin of it.
