We'll obviously never agree but when I see the same thing over and
over, like a name, I get bored.  Time, like a serial number, is
ever-changing.  And times even less boring because it changes
regardless of what either op does.  If you miss a S/N, you can watch
the other guy's next QSO and figure out what yours was.  Can't do that
with time - very not boring!
