Time Zones and Daylight Saving

Postby Zechiel » Wed Mar 14, 2007 6:40 am

ALL TIMES ON LS/NEWSLETTER ARE EDT!

At the moment we're in a confusion state where half of the world switched to Daylight Saving time while the other half will switch next week. This can cause some confusion because the difference between EU and NA time is now 1 hour less, but will change back to normal once EU changed to summertime aswell.
This means all the event times for EU stay the same while all evens for NA are 1 hour later.
We used to have LS times on EST (Wintertime) but that's changed to EDT (Summertime)

This week:
EDT (UTC-4) Summertime
GMT (UTC) Wintertime for the United Kingdom and Ireland
CET (UTC+1) Wintertime for France, Germany, Holland etc

Next week:
EDT (UTC-4) Summertime
BST (UTC+1) Summertime for the United Kingdom and Ireland
CEST (UTC+2) Summertime for France, Germany, Holland etc
