      He means UTC he just misspelled it ;) UTC=GMT=London time (utc as an acronym isn't used much in europe, better using GMT it's more common, or even better for european players' reference CET which is GMT+1 because all western european countries share that timezone besides portugal, UK and greece)

        Thanks, timezones aren't my strong point either.

        This web site works it out for you but sadly doesn't correct spelling mistakes :D

          Hehe no problem, I'm only taking a guess though on the time since you give up two different informations...still I think I figured out what you mean I guess it's 22.00 GMT/UTC (UK time), 23.00 EET (Most of european countries), 17.00 EST (eastern US) & 14.00 PST (Pacific US time) correct? ;)
          Really nice having TGU classes, hoping to attend though I'm not yet sure of being at home the 18th, can I still book a slot and then renounce in case I don't make it? (I'll be sure to tell around a week earlier if that's the case) EDIT read the "you can pull out but you will be at the bottom of the list if you reapply" thing, got my answer there :)

            Oh man, my brain hurts :)
            Yeah, that looks ok. I have a cousin in New York and I know they are 5 hours behind the UK. There endeth my knowledge.

            I'll post the class list here the day before the course so as long as you let me know by then.

                Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)[1] is a time standard based on International Atomic Time (TAI) with leap seconds added at irregular intervals to compensate for the Earth's slowing rotation.[2] Leap seconds are used to allow UTC to closely track UT1, which is mean solar time at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich.

                The difference between UTC and UT1 is not allowed to exceed 0.9 seconds so, if high precision is not required, the general term Universal Time (UT) may be used.[3]

                In casual use, when fractions of a second are not important, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) can be considered equivalent to UTC or UT1. In fact, saying "GMT" often implies either UTC or UT1. For this reason, saying "GMT" is generally avoided in technical contexts, with an unambiguous terminology of "UTC" or "UT1" preferred instead.[3]

                Time zones around the world can be expressed as positive or negative offsets from UTC; UTC replaced GMT as the basis for the main reference time scale or civil time in various regions on 1 January 1972.[4]

                      Due to a huge suspected brainfart I would like to clarify that the course is on the 18th and it is actually a Wednesday.

                      The loss of cognitive function was likely caused by having propped up a bar for several hours before posting.

                      There's a lesson to be learned there kids.....
