>From your statements in this thread I expect that you don't have a
watch on your wrist and have no clocks and calendars at your home,
because you can determine the time of day and the date by some simple
calculations.  What the heck, simply add the days passed since your

an average women.

manolo, thinking that mencal is much more useful than
kernel-patch-lpp because it actually yields information instead of
