I got it at 11:53 PDT. I just checked the headers and the delay was split
in a couple of places. (Correcting all times for PDT)
thunk -> 9:10 -> alcor.process.com. (And they're off and running!)
alcor.process.com. -> 9:10 -> toad.com. (delivered in 0 time:)
toad.com. -> 11:29 -> relay3.uu.net. (Sat on toad 2hrs, 19 min)
relay3.uu.net. -> 11:54 -> mail2.pilot.net. (Sat on relay3 25 mins )
mail2.pilot.net. -> 11:53 -> verity.com. (delivered into the past!)
Of course these delays can vary a few minutes either way because of
inaccuracies of time clocks on various machines.
