Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Again, a little give can 
sometimes be a very good thing. Honestly, nerds all seem to have this 
thing where they think their way is the best way. This is how distro 
religious wars start. But of all the community of nerds I am associated 
with, blind nerds are the worst. There is absolutely no compromise, no 
willingness to work together, nothing! In fact, it's ubiquitous in the 
blind community. We even have 2 different advocacy groups, the NFB and 
the ACB.  And the health of the blind community as a whole can just go 
to heck for all anyone cares. Drives me crazy. The reason why F12 should 
give you the time is that that the standard. Because people expect F12 
to give them the time. It's that simple.
