Just like the Department of Pre-Crime, JR runs the Pre-Post Timer.

Try to remember if you were jogging this morning at near light speed. That will slow time down for you (time dilation) and everything will seem to be in the future relative to you.

Time is just a man made up thing which IMHO is very inconvenient, it is not natural.

At the beginning of this year FR suffered a crash that killed a server and slimed some software. Not everything has been fixed yet. The software has to be rewritten. New programs etc.

The FR clock works fine for me. I believe you have been transported 16 minutes into the past.

Have you detected any surges in chorniton particles recently? :-)

here’s a better thign to ponder: you will note that time difference is growing. please estimate the date and time when the FR clock again agrees with the correct time.

algore did not get to inventing that part yet. It is a work in progress but he is working harder than ever to fix it.

There is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the monitor. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your computer. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Freerepublic.

Doc Brown might say it is a disruption in the space-time continuum. He might need to get the Delorean and go back to the future in order to fix it.

The clock is set ahead to keep Freepers on time for off line appointments/schedules.

Ever seen the face of a Freeper child left sitting on the school steps all alone waiting for Freeper Mom to show up?

Just a correction on my part. He will have to go back to the past to fix it because if he goes to the future it is the alternate future.
