Copyright para las zonas horarias?! esto es el colmo, es absurdo! se los

Esta es una mala noticia que nos afecta seriamente, copio este correo a
algunas listas y a los demandantes (Astrolabe).

Ojala ustedes se animen a hacer lo mismo y envíen un correo a Astrolab si es
que sienten que esta acción les afecta.

Los correos de esta gente son (están entre los destinatarios de este hilo):

Information: astrolabe(at)alabe(dot)com<astrolabe(at)alabe(dot)com?subject=Astrolabe%20Feedback>
,
Tech Support: support(at)alabe(dot)com <support(at)alabe(dot)com?subject=Tech%20Support>
Order questions: orders(at)alabe(dot)com
Sales and nonTech questions: astrolabe(at)alabe(dot)com
Webmaster: webmaster(at)alabe(dot)com

Y por si les interesa Astrolab tiene una lista de correos:
