The time problem on my email was my end, but I have also been getting mails 
out of sync, and my mail does not go via TPG.  Currently WebOne is my ISP, 
and my mail goes via BigPond.

There are other lists I'm on where my posts turn up almost instantly, but 
with CLUG it can sometimes be quite a while later (over half and hour).  I've 
never really worried about it.  But if this happens with everyone, then 
perhaps someone should bring it up with Tim Potter.
