Need to get back on local time....

It also checks if the next update time is before the current time and moves it forward a day. Which would occur if for the previous example of doing an update at "2006-02-14 13:34:30" it had returned a 'suggestedTime' of "2006-02-15 05:09:08"....when it stores the HH:mm in a string and then converts it to a DateTime object...it gets the current date (2006-02-14)....though the old code was just string matching the HH:mm, so it would've worked for this case. But, I changed it to 'unix-time'...so that next update can be greater than 24 hours ahead.... So, for this case, it adds a day...to make it match what 'suggestedTime' had been set to.

As before, it doesn't account for the fact if the software had been stopped and restarted such that it missed the scheduled update for the day. Though a bigger code change would allow for this....

Now there is a problem where WiRNS is calling 'acknowledge' too frequently...which probably isn't a bad thing to Zap2it, but could be a bad thing to WiRNS....if Zap2it didn't constrain suggestedTime to be sometime in the next day... And, suggestedTime was better/properly used. I've thought about addressing this...though it is a bit more involved to make sure I've identified all the different places that it is currently being called, etc.

Probably something to explore when I've had more sleep (and less opposed to having a Mountain Dew, or two....along with my increased home coffee consumption. &#59;D)

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
