[rc5] What does this mean?

Any interpreters in the house?

I'm trying to write something for tomorrow's distributed-mac.net page, 
but I'm not sure what this acronym means. (From the "Stats are down" page 
that we're all so familiar with.) :)

..."the stats database offline during normal business hours (CST6CDT)."

It's that bit in the parentheses.

Is it something like Central Standard Time 6 Central Daylight Time?

What the heck is that supposed to mean? I'd expect a range there, 
something that said "between 8am and 6 pm CST", or something like what he 
said in this morning's email:

>(which for me, in CDT, are roughly 13:00 GMT to about 23:00 GMT)

THAT, I can understand.

I'm not picking on anybody, I'm just expressing my own ignorance. 
Something tells me that CST6CDT is standard notation for something 
related to timezones, but I don't know what it is.
