Your system time of your laptop is wrong. Lunar tags the moonbase it
downloads by converting the systems time to UTC as an internal handle.

in any case this does not really matter, since the file that is
downloaded is named 'moonbase.tar.bz2', which has no date in the
filename. You will therefore always download the latest moonbase, unless
in the stage the http cache of your XP box goofs up. 

But then again, that XP box should be running lunar anyways ;^)

In short: your moonbases are up-to-date. It is in fact impossible to
download an old moonbase from !!!
