    Forum Upgrade

    Finally! We have scheduled the vBulletin upgrade for 4pm this Sunday PST and estimate 4 hours downtime. Apologies for the inconvenience but we'll be back all shiny and new.

    Yeah, I hate it when people quote US time zones as though they mean much to the rest of the world, especially if daylight savings happens to be in effect. UTC FTW.

    PST would be GMT-7 so that should be 11pm UTC I believe.

    And here in Melbourne it would be 9am Monday morning

    Actually, PST is GMT - 8:

    Pacific Time Zone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That makes it 1am local time in the UK

    it's got PSD and PDT -> GMT

    I think PDT is daylight saving time

    I think you misread the table. In the table GMT - PST = 8 hrs

    Ah yes, true. Don't you just love those exeptions on the time zones

    So it'll be 2am here. Still lots of time to get it up and running before I wake up.

    If Guido wakes up on Monday with a brand new and shiny vBulletin version... it means that I will too because my time is +1 GMT, 1 hour less than he does.

    These damn summer time zones
    I thought we were GMT+2 right now? Madrid and Rome have the same timezone. Or don't you have summer time over there?

    UTC FTW.
    You would have loved Zefram's Why time is difficult talk. Too bad he doesn't seem to have slides on it anywhere. I thought UTC was one standard. There's like a bunch of versions of it, and then it depending on how high above the Earth you were :/

    That's Sunday 4PM Pacific Standard Time.

    Sarah said four hours from now, an hour ago. That means we have three more to go.
