A note about viewing the borders:
At wider zoom ranges the time zone lines may appear to be significantly off from borders which they are supposed to follow. This is because when zoomed out S&T and MP sometimes uses approximated border data. If you zoom in to the 90 mile range or tighter, most such discrepancies disappear and you will find the time zone lines accurately track the borders. On rare occasions you may need to zoom in as tight as 18 miles to show border data with sufficient accuracy. If you are zoomed into the 18 mile range or tighter and see a discrepancy, please drop me a note to let me know.
