I think it's "pst" now, not "pdt" anymore, technically.

Also bear in mind that Greenwich Mean Time will soon be made obsolete.


LEADING scientists from around the world are meeting in Britain to consider a proposal that could eventually see Greenwich Mean Time relegated to a footnote in history.

Works for me. GMT is the one that drifts, and all modern communication stuff already knows how to compensate for offsets at the level necessary to reconcile the difference. Adjustments to GMT are also a gigantic pain in the ass for software to deal with, and unifying this stuff makes it easier to deal with.

Turning GMT into just another time zone is a great idea.

Let's do away with timezones altogether. Yeah, you loose the ability to say "noon" to anyone and mean the same relative position of the sun, but you gain the ability to say "7pm" to anyone and mean the same time.

Man, a guy can't even suggest so much as changing a single letter around here without stirring up a shitstorm of snark, sarcasm, and masturbatory pontificating... What is this, an Internet forum or something?! :P

Worse. It's Song Fight's internet forum.

I deleted two posts. Being an asshole doesn't suit me.

Now that we have Hillbilly to fill the community post whoring dolt position, I've been considering an asshole motif. No more happy-go-lucky fun-lovin' lamp shade on my head party boy. From now on I'm going to call everyone a hippie and tell you to get a haircut!
