All done, see my post of 9:40 am.

I found your post by having to search the entire thread.* The time you
posted is indeed 09.40 am in the header, but we don't all live in your
time zone so the date/time shown can be different in the message pane of
the newsreader.* Time here of your message was 15.40.29 ;-)

people in other time zones, must be an easier way.

The universally accepted way of referring someone back to an earlier
post is to reference it by its Message-ID.

For example, the Message-ID (MID) of the post to which I'm replying here
is Message-ID: .
