MInutes from Sept 9 call

International colleagues,
While I am thinking of it, most countries shift from daylight time to regular time a few weeks before the US does on Nov 7. We'll keep running the regular meetings at 11 New York time, so please adjust accordingly. Sorry for the complication.

Hi Phil

 

Please just make sure you indicate times in UTC, which equals to GMT (or to “Zulu-Time” in the NATO language.)

But last week you indicated in something like ‘Greenwich Daylight Saving Time’, which doesn’t actually exist ;)

 

Best regards

Soeren

Thanks, Soeren. I believe in my memo (just to you) last week, I mentioned British Summer Time which according to my research does exist http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/info/bst.htm. It is the way that the UK refers to its timezone during the part of the year that the country goes one hour ahead of GMT.

In any case, this time stuff is tricky. Because most participants on the calls are from the US, we'll keep the time consistent for the US. Regular Thursday calls will always be at 11am New York time. Apologies for the schedule change that will occur internationally in late October.

GMT is an old term and UTC is the new black. The good thing about UTC is
that it does not change, no matter how many timezones the UK skips in
summer (there used to be this thing called "double summer time"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_summer_time ). There are also
plenty of places where there is no summer time (I believe even in the
US). UTC makes sense then (ask the US military about their "zulu time")

In any case, this time stuff is tricky.
It's not that tricky: use UTC and a converter (like
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html ) to calculate your
local timezone :-P
