I apologize.  When I thought about it, I thought that my reasons for
not mentioning my Ph. D. were better than my reasons for revealing it,
so I probably should have stayed "in the closet".


That works, but I still like my suggestion of "Urth time" and "Whorl
time".  To me, that's precisely what you're talking about--how long
it's been according to timekeeping on Urth and on the _Whorl_.

By the way, we covered S. R. in my Conceptual Physics class today,
and I used rough approximations to your numbers as an example, with a
plug for TBotLS.  Thanks!

[After they allowed me to escape with a Ph. D., my only association
with physics has been teaching it at community colleges, so I'm not
a professor--or a real physicist, as Dan'l called me.]
