"Why didn't you tell us you had a time machine!?"

Sadly, it's the end of time, at least as far as phone services. California and Nevada still have automated time services but the old machines are wearing out and won't be replaced.

I have to admit, I haven't needed to call POPCORN since back when I was a teenager. (And I didn't realize that POPCORN was a California-specific thing, either.) Nowadays, I'm so surrounded by battery-backed time-telling electronics that I don't even bother to wear a watch. Still, it's the end of a piece of communications nostalgia.
