  • Still having trouble with timezones? this should help.

    I figured I might as well write a quickie program, seeing as people still seem to be having trouble with timezones. It's a quickie job, so sorry if it's buggy. You MUST have java installed. If you get errors, first download the latest version of java from http://java.com/en/
    If you still get errors, please post them. I have not tested this on any machine but mine, so it may be that I'm forgetting something. It works on mine, though, so it should be fine.

    Includes readme with detailed instructions.

      thx, I tried it!

      its a java program therefore it should also run on linux - because of the JRE
      so yeah it works for me - XP64 Pro

      i like the idea of making that program - its a bit minimalistic though - a console application with prompts ;)

      good job, and thx for giving the source too :)

        That was the point: the problem with timeanddate.com or whatever is that it's too complex. 50 features obfuscating what should be a simple task: figuring out a simple offset.

                Note to self: don't code when you haven't slept for 24 hours. Problem's fixed; it was offsetting times in the wrong direction (it was saying 10:00 PST = 7:00 EST, not the correct 10:00 PST = 1:00 EST). If you downloaded it before, download it again if you intend to actually use it.
