Yesterday i noticed that i sent a message with a link to an Android friend that 
was offline at that time.
I stayed online all the time and after one or two hours my friend came back

message at the same time. but looking at the timestamp of the messages there 
was a difference between 1 and 2 hours between my first and second message. Any
