Timezone and date are the same on horde, the server and my device.

What exactly do you need in my Sync-Log to be? I am syncing ~100
contacts and I don't want to publish their names, numbers addresses etc.
If I can cut out the part with the personal information then I can
provide the log. Otherwise it would be a bit problematic changing
numbers names addresses etc for 100 contacts. Another possibility would
be to crop all contacts execpt for one with a brithday.
