Hi Justin,

It happened at 8:00AM Irish time (which is about 2:00 AM My time) I
didn't get in to the office and notice the mail until 6 hours after it
happened (In Central America) so it took about 7 hours and 30 minutes
to fix.

PE also reported that the problem started at 8:00 AM on the 29th and
was repaired at 9:05 (no AM or PM) on the 26th (yes, three days in the
past). I don't think their timing procedure is functioning correctly.
