What is the Time Zone for Mars?

So, we asked one small set of tasks of the new users at go-live. They needed to login to the system and in their user preferences they needed to do three things. First, change their password. Second, add their email address. Finally, set their time zone.

At 10:20 a.m. I got an instant message. It said "how do we know which one of these time zones we should pick"? Yes, absorb that.

One of my launch team members said "oh god, tell them to turn the computer off an go home for the day". When I mentioned it to my boss, this was his reply.

Well, at least someone's keeping a sense of humor about it. I think the correct answer is a week from next Thursday, but I can't be sure.
