Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

A beautiful self-referential dark mirror glass tower set on a plaza. The plan is similar to a curved set of brackets, with one side smooth and scalloped, punctured only by small rectilinear verandah holes and the other with an elegant twin set of bows punctuated by a square grid pattern. At the base, a services and back entrance is defined in a block of patterned metal.
