  • An additional complication you didn't mention is that according to http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/b.html [webexhibits.org], the European time zones all change at once, at 01:00 UTC, whereas in the US each time zone changes at 02:00 local time.
    • Dog! Europe changes at 1 a.m. UTC? I thought it too was local time, I didn't read it carefully enough. I'll leave it where it is though; people can be off an hour or three a year. :)
      • I was in Ukraine for the DST this year and didn't even notice it due to the 8-hours of jetlag. :) I arrived the very day of the changeover, and was there for the one week the country is off from my timezone by seven instead of by eight. At the very moment my home CST timezone changed I was standing in Kiev looking at a huge monument to Vladimir.

    • If you mean forgot to mention it in the journal, yeah, I just skipped it. If you are talking about the code (some other people will surely ask this, even if you aren't), the idea is to select Pacific time, and set DST to "Manual (Off)", so it will be on PST year-round.
      • I did mean the journal.

        In a former life I had to create a web based
        system for setting the date & time and TZ
        on windows boxen. I too opted for a condensed
        list with the togglable DST. Marketing hated
        it; it wasn't exactly like MicroSoft :-P

  • I don't claim to know anything about the timezones of australia other than the eastern side.

    Basically you've got AEST and, most of the time, the eastern side follows that.

    However, Queensland never goes into DST (it being northern). ACT/NSW/Vic do, as does Tasmania, but Tasmania does it a few weeks earlier (it being more southerly).

    As for the western side and central, I try not to worry.

  • That's daylight saving time. :)

    NIST [nist.gov] has a great site at www.time.gov [time.gov], for those of you who would like to read everything possible about DST.
