F****ng Timezones

Recommended Posts

Alright mother****ers, if this goes on any longer I'm gonna pop an aneurysm or something. 

TL:DR, stop being pedantic. 

Not summer time:

CET (Central European Time, used by countries such as Sweden, Germany et cetera) = 18:00

EET (Eastern European Time, used by Finland amongst others) = 19:00 (CET + 1, see that f***in' plus?)

 

Summer time... lord help me:

CEST (Central European Summer Time, swedes use this currently) = 19:00

EEST (Eastern European Summer Time, finns use this currently) = 20:00

 

... you see a pattern here b****es? +1 plus one whatever Sweden is.

All of this means that finland is just +1 from your lovely neighbours, so for all intents and purposes cet = cest and eet = eest unless you're the most pedantic f*** alive and you swill around some port in your mansion while reading some random ass broadsheet. 

Hell, if you even look up "Finland timezone" on google, guess what you get? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=finland+timezone&rlz=1C1ASRW_enGB737GB737&oq=finland+timezone&aqs=chrome.0.0l6.2418j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 

F***ing Eastern European Timezone. 

 

Cut the s***, cut the S, in practice it means a same thing unless you have to use a calculator to subtract 1 hour from a clock face because mathematics is too damn difficult, in which case, what the f***.

Edit: Ffs in summer we (UK) go to BST instead of GMT, guess what though? We still call it GMT since EVERY COUNTRY IN EUROPE SYNCS UP WITH THE CLOCKS GOING FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS

Hmm. It's almost starting to make sense, but questions remain. For example, what happens if I schedule some games here in Finland but then go to Sweden to play them? What if I'm in Finland but decide to identify more with the time zone in a place like the United States, which is this big place with multiple time zones whose times are way behind ours? And how can I ever be sure my clocks are accurate, will I need to sync up with opponents using some neutral clock that we all agree on?

Hey, I know! Maybe add a clock that shows CET time on the site! 

You didn't read anything did you? Otherwise you'd realise you just have to -1 from Finnish time to get Swedish time ;)

See that's the beauty of it, I personally identify with BST (Bangladesh Standard time), which can make scheduling a little tricky. My secret trick tho is to -6 (Since it's 6 time zones ahead of shitty old Uk time) and then +1 to get cesrzzrt and +2 to get budget soviet time. 

My advice tho is to just identify with apache attack helicopters, much simpler than timezones imo.

We're currently working on a schedule sundial, including a micro SD chip storing a voice clip of @MartindalexC screaming "it's the same fucking thing". Will be released on our merch store in 2021. Pricing unknown. Shipping will be 9,90€ though.

I didn't add those two countries because I live there, but there are several new guys from these countries.

And also to clearify another time: The default sheduled time is set for CET countries, if you're insecure where you live, look in my quote or in Martindalexc's first post!

The best post of 2017. Lovin' the bump.

In Finland the news cycle has been about winter/summer times for the past couple of weeks. The net result is that everyone has an opinion while the grand majority don't even have a clue what timezone they are in.

How about NHL Gamer timezone, with that magnificent NHL Gamer Clock on the wepsite.  With virus written in the code that syncs the clocks of every user in NHLGAMER TIMEZONE.

Separate android app is a must.

This is ridiculous... If you can't figure out how a clock works, maybe let someone else do the scheduling for your team then?
