Yes, but the numbers there don't make sense. For our case
(c3sl.ufpr.br), the delay is 12.92 or 12.72 hours. Since you list us
as having updated at 2010-07-31 18:01, and now is Jul 31 21:05:23 UTC,
there are two possibilities. The first is that you're in the past, in
which case you cannot know we updated at the moment you list. The
second possibility is that your're in the future :-)
