Daylight Saving

Post by GBDawg1 on Sat 08 Mar 2014, 9:24 am

I have just noticed that the clocks go forward in the USA tomorrow. They don't go forward in Europe until the end of the month (30th March).

So, what this means is that for the next few weeks:

EST is UK -4, Mainland Europe -5.
CST is UK -5 and Mainland Europe -6.

I will remind everyone when it reverts back to normal.

Just a reminder to everyone that European clocks went forward an hour today (30th March) so that means we are back to normal.

Vs UK times:

EST = -5
CST = -6.

As is customary at this time of year, I remind people about the clock changes that will be with us shortly.

European summer time ends on 26th October.
North America's ends on 2 November.

This means that between 26 Oct - 1 November inclusive, US times will be an hour closer to European times.

So, EST will be UK -4, Mainland Europe -5
CST will be UK -5, mainland Europe -6.

Everything will be back to normal on 2 November, when EST will again be UK -5 and CST UK -6.

It's this frigging laptop. I was talking about it in the chatbox last night. Overly sensitive & if you pause on a key for too long this happensss.

Oh and warnings to Hammy & Stang for being "ases".

Just a reminder to everyone that the clocks went back in Europe yesterday, so until next weekend, UK is in front of US time zones as follows:

EST 4 hours
CST 5 hours

So New York 7 pm = London 11 pm
Chicago 7 pm = London Midnight

After 2 am Sunday, the US will revert to being 5 and 6 hours behind the UK for EST and CST zones respectively.

Please note that the American clocks have gone back today, so that means normal time differences are restored, which are :

EST = UK -5 (Continental Europe -6)
CST = UK -6 (Continental Europe -7).

And a good thing too, as I needed that extra hour's sleep last night after overdoing it somewhat in some fine establishments in downtown Cleveland.

I forgot to update this with the news that the American clocks have moved forward on 8th March(Europe is on 29th March).

However, then I realised it actually didn't matter because at the moment, we don't have any American-based owners!

One thing to note post-29th though is that Warlow, our South African based owner, will only be +1 against UK time rather than +2. This is because the South Africans can't be arsed to bother with daylight saving.

As ever at this time of year, I remind everyone about the clock changes which start this weekend.

In Europe, the clocks go back on Sunday 25th. What this means is that the USA times become one hour closer to ours. So, for one week, in relation to UK times:

EST is UK -4
CST is UK -5
Mountain time (The Champ) is UK -6.

The other person in this league affected is VL_Coach, because Belarus can't be bothered with Daylight Saving and so from Sunday 25th, his time zone will be UK +3.

Clocks in America go back the following weekend (1st November) when everything will revert to normal.

Just a reminder to all that the American clocks go back this weekend (1st November). This only affects anyone who is playing The Champ, who will revert to -7 hours vs UK time.

It also affects anyone watching NFL 1 pm EST games, which will revert to being 6 pm UK time.
