RE: CBS/Westinghouse, et al



This is GREAT NEWS! Moving the US mains line frequency to 59.94
will give us almost 84 extra seconds per day; just think of what
we can do with that extra 8.5 hours/year!  It could be used to
make up for the hour of sleep you lose going off DST and still
have time to watch 3 movies you never seem to get around to
renting.

or you can work an extra day, for no extra dough....

It'll be years before the clockmakers come out with retrofit gears, not
to mention turntable manufacturers.  What a boost to the economy!
