Oops! I guess it wasn't the greatest idea in the world then? You can call
me stupid, I don't mind :) It seems to be running fine... but if I really
shouldn't have done that can I just do another buildworld?

What am I looking at in UPDATING? I don't see anything recent related to
adjkerntz... but I just ran it anyway. Should it have changed my time or
date? It didn't seem to do much?
