I understood the time correctly first time, but then all the odd
comments today made me go and double-check that it was P.M. It's
basically just the end of Sunday in California (the minute after is
00:00 on the 3rd, perhaps it should have been quoted as 23:59 to make
it clearer, P.M. or Post-Meridiem can be unclear especially in other
locales I guess). Times being in PST is something I sort of got used
to during Google's Summer of Code which also uses this as its time
23:59 PST is 8am on Monday morning here in the UK (UTC+0000 at the
moment) and even more into the day if you're further east.
Hope that clears things up,
