Baf tells me it does, so:

I vote nay on It's Time! [Psmith]. I propose as a new rule:

It's Time Now! [Psmith]

The current time shall be considered part of the state of the game.
Reasonable divergence of clocks shall not be considered to be
deception about the current state of the game; however, if there is
disagreement, any clock synched by NTP to an atomic timeserver shall
be considered to be authoritative. Times may be expressed in terms of
whichever timezone a player wishes.
