Probably other places too.  Should I worry about the following error?  Is 
it OK for serverTime to be 'None'.  Does that cause problems elsewhere?  Or 
am I getting errors because an NTP server cannot be found?

Here's the error (I obviously won't be able to find ntp-1.accessgrid.org):

10/05/04 11:40:28 1468 Toolkit     toolkit.py:178 ERROR
