(1) The correct figure IS 16 hours. (15 hours when U.S. is on daylight
savings time)

(2) Make sure the direction is right. ADD 16 hours to the U.S. east coast
time to get the correct Australian time. For example, 12 noon EST today in
the U.S. is 4 AM *tomorrow* morning in Australia. 12 noon tomorrow in
Australia is 8 PM tonight on the U.S. east coast.

So, anyway you cut it, *someone's* going to lose sleep over this! <G>
