But if a local PC was used to work on files, having a current time at checkin 
of 11:30 MDT, and the server at time of checkin is 13:35 EDT, this could 
seriously screw with any automation that relies on the datetime stamp to know 
if a build has already included that change (i.e., cruisecontrol).

Just FYI...
