I noticed there are already bug reports for Calendar, but I don't think any of
them cover this aspect:

            Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();
            Calendar myCal = Calendar.getInstance();

            myCal.set(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY, 23);
            myCal.set(Calendar.MINUTE, 59);
            myCal.set(Calendar.SECOND, 59);

            long resetTime = myCal.getTimeInMillis() - now.getTimeInMillis();

            turnTimer.scheduleAtFixedRate(new TurnTask(keeper), resetTime,

If I do a System.out.println(resetTime) and calculate milliseconds to hours it
is always >25.  Then if I subtract 86400000 it will display correctly but it
doesn't run the task.  Other Java compilers do this correctly so it's not my
poor code causing the issue. ;)  I have another TimerTask that starts looks like
respawnTimer.scheduleAtFixedRate(new ResetTask(keeper), 0, 35000);
which works just fine.
