Good idea Terrie, I have a clock that shows time in UTC (United Time Coordinated) And I use this for getting people to meet at a particular time world wide!!! :D :p

Thank you both. :) I've been using this for a few years and have found it helpful to understand the estimated weather conditions and the different times, etc when I speak to People in different areas of Canada and cities or towns around the world.

It's Nice to take your mind to other places occasionally and kind of get a feel for where your Friends are. It sometimes also is useful to understand their varied moods. I do realize though, that sometimes one part of a city can be raining cats and dogs while in another part of that same city, it can be a beautiful sunny day.

Good idea that you have there also Peter. ;)

Excelent idea.

I am in the uk and nice to know what reply to give when i enter a chat room LOL, evening, morning or good night. :D:D:D

Also as most active forums are American they are usally 7 hours behind me but some states are different which makes life fun. :)

Good to know the other country time zones as i will have a rough idea when forums, chatrooms will be busy and quiet.

Thanks.

Davey.

:cool:

Hi, this is great!! I have been talking to someone in Scotland and neither they nor I knew the time difference.

Right now, it is 6:34 Pacific Standard Time. This Sunday it will be Daylight Savings Time and we will lose one hour of sleep. We will gain one hour of daylight. A lot of places in the West Coast does not observe it.

I am in California.

In the first post, Terrie gives the link to the time zones in the world. I checked just this thread and we have people from: Canada Australia, NY USA, Scotland, Nevada, USA, Missouri, USA, and I live in CA.

The US has 8 time zones 4 in the contiguous 48 states then Alaska AND Hawaii and a few other! You have the clock, you look them up, LOL!! (use this link The official US time (NIST & USNO) and count the US time zone links under the map.)
