    Relativity ain't it? You know how time appears to slow down when you approach the beginning of a new season.

    I prefer the Newtonian interpretation of physics.

    Particularly the famous maxim "what goes up inevitably comes down again" - and, especially when, like many apples, they are GREEN.

    According to my triple clock, it looks like it's approaching 5 minutes to 5 in New York (assuming that's what I set that one to), 5 to 7 in Sydney, and 5 to 10 in Dorset. Ish, very ish. I don't have my glasses on.

    And there was me thinking when I saw the thread title that the E&E Scoreboard had a new companion.

    To be fair, when NOT logged in it was always about an hour behind BST. (Ask the Crediton Chronologer if you don't believe me...or, indeed find him in his current mystic time zone)

    It would be a slightly encouraging thought to hope that the EW hourglass was trying to edge its way towards autumnal accuracy with about the speed of the ECFC transfer policy.

    Sadly, I fear, it's possibly hedging its bets between BST time and dismal Autumnal GMT.

    Just a thought, but might it be an idea to permanently fix the EW atomic clock permanently to a 30 minute limbo between GMT and the (ridiculously ironically named) British SUMMER time.

    At least we could then rest assured that, unlike an "unwound clock" it could NEVER be right.

    And now it's either seven minutes fast or the clock on me pooter has slowed down by two.

    This is how the dinosaurs were wiped out.
