GMT - AND OTHER REAL WORLD TIMES - Lusternia Online Help


(See CONFIG TIMEZONE at the end of this scroll)

Nearly all times quoted by Lusternia's administration will be quoted in GMT,
which stands for Greenwich Mean Time. This is the standard upon which the 
world's clocks are based. So, because Lusternia is an international game this
is the easiest way of quoting real time. Unfortunately, because of daylight 
savings time, GMT can get confusing, as it does not 'turn its clock ahead'
(or back).

All times here are quoted outside of Daylight Savings Time. If you are in
Daylight Savings Time, you are an hour further ahead relative to GMT.

If you are in:

England         GMT
Europe          GMT, GMT+1 
South America   GMT -5 to GMT -3
USA/EAST        GMT -5
USA/WEST        GMT -8 

South Pacific   GMT +12 to GMT +10
Korea           GMT +9
Japan           GMT +9
Australia       GMT +8 to GMT +10
China           GMT +8
India           GMT +5.5
Iraq            GMT +3 (or GMT +4 in summer)
Israel          GMT +2 (or GMT +3 in summer)
Africa          GMT to GMT +3

By default the time shown by the time command is GMT. By using the CONFIG TIMEZONE command, it will also show you the time in your own timezone. When using this command, your timezone should be specified as relative to GMT:

CONFIG TIMEZONE -0400 to set it four hours behind GMT.
CONFIG TIMEZONE +0500 to set it five hours ahead of GMT.
CONFIG TIMEZONE to clear it entirely.
