  • Desktop Clock to show EST and GMT?

    To help us Europeans work out when stuff is happening, does anyone know of a little app. for Windows that sits on the desktop and shows the times in the different zones?

    There were tonnes of things like this for my Mac - 'World Clocks' - but not so sure about Windows.

    Big thanks,

    Ranger

    (...A long time ago when I used to play Ghost Recon we used to use something called 'Internet Time' - a kind of zone-neutral clock that you could download off the Net somewhere...But I guess that's maybe just complicating things though!)

    No it's not complicating things. I know there is a program that some TG'ers have used to convert all timezones. But I can't find it. I have searched but no luck. If anybody out there knows where we can find this little gem at we would be appreciated. Thanks

      I was searching, and the closest I could get is http://www.softpedia.com/, you would have to do a search for World Clocks, and decide from the choices there. Hope this helps.

          Hi there - many thanks, this at least lets me calculate time differences...

          For example I now know that the Irregulars TeamSpeak get together is at 4am UK time (11pm EST) - gulp!

          LOL

                I got something, hold up...

                Got it:



                I printed this out and stuck it next to my PC. Not exactly an app but it does the trick.

                  :)

                  Thanks ~ For clearing this up.

                  That Time Zones For PCs looks good - does what I want. Puts little clocks on my desktop. Will invest in that!

                    Well - it's not as fancy as little desktop clocks! :D

                    But it does the business - Ta Shafik.

                        The thing about that chart, however, is that it doesn't account for Daylight Savings Time in the U.S.

                        As far as I can tell, we're the only country in the world that changes our clocks in the spring and fall...but really it's ingenious...if you set your clock ahead one hour in the spring, that's one additional hour of sunlight for your crops growin' in the fields... *cough*

                        THAT'S ALL I GOT FOLKS, G'NIGHT!!!

                          UK and most of Europe do this too.

                          I reckon we should stick to ZULU time. I seem to remember from something that this is the universal time of NATO, and is GMT I think.

                          After a quick google

                          The "clock" at Greenwich, England is used as the standard clock for international reference of time in communications, military, aviation, maritime and other activities that cross time zones.

                            Clocklink:

                            Came across this - it's called ClockLink and allows you to put a shockwave clock on your webpage: http://www.clocklink.com/

                            It's free and will let you download shockwave clock - of the timezone of your choice - or an active desktop.

                            I'm still looking into it so dunno whether it's a good of bad thing yet...And unfortunatly the TG forum doesn't like teh embed cose so I can't pop one in here (unless I'm doing something wrong - haven't sussed out what kinda code this forum allows you to put in the posts!).

                              I recall this thread on my team forum where I was ranting about Daylight Saving Time.
