Ok I was fed up with missing things due to timezone conversions and links to converters still allow for mistakes if they don't account for daylight savings so I made two simple time tables, one for wintertime and one for daylight savings.

Copy em, print em and never miss an event again.

Below is the Daylight savings one

If it doesn't show on the forum, just copy the image link to a new tab in your browser to see / download it.

Game on (time)

I still think the easist way to keep track of time is to buy a cheap clock; set it to GMT and then set it next to your computer. Don't even have to read a table ...

Even simpler *cough* would be to get the entire world to run off GMT ... I could really care less if a clock reads as 7 AM or 1 PM when the sun rises ... the sun still rises and I know when I have to be to work and through with work.

Hehehe I knew that, but I like the pun. I should have said "temporarily temporally impaired" as with the tables you you're not...impaired anymore, if you can read that is :mrgreen:

I use my ipod to convert all the important timezones. Here's what I have:

Los Angeles (GMT-8)
New York (GMT-5)
London (GMT)
Moscow (GMT+....?)
Pyongyang (I have no idea, but you can also use Tokyo too, I guess, but this option's way edgier)

Sure, we'll get right on that just as soon as we're done converting to the Metric system. :flucht:

Just a little bump but for you Firefox users there's an addon called Foxclocks that will add a GMT clock among other clocks if you want to the lower left hand corner of your browser. It's been great for me in keeping track of the time for Avlis stuff.

Why don't we just use a GMT clock or something that displays on the forums? No need for confusing DST changes then as everyone could just simply look at it and know what the time is.
