@SatoshiLite: Running your own node is like having your own watch. You use it to tell time without relying on others. (e.g. miners) If everyone has their own watch, actual time can only change if everyone agrees to change it. (e.g. DST) Time is only useful when everyone is on the same time.

That's the information that would be useful to have, where a thousand cheering posts about how victorious we are mean nothing.

Thanks in advance.
