Lightbulb Internet Time

Hello, guys

After browsing through some of the late posts today here in SimplyMaya (&SimplyLightwave) I noticed how difficult it is for everybody to keep track of the time. Which is why I propose the use of Internet Time. Iīve been using it with quite a lot of success throughout some boards.

Check Swatch Internet Time for more information. (Flash site)

Might Help A LOT to keep track of comps and such if we all run on the same time zone.
(I use it to keep track of dates around the world.) :p

Regards,

thats a pretty damn good idea actually...it makes alot of sense...no point in having confusion when it can be avoided!

I was about to post a a thread reminding Kev about the fact that the time on SM is one hour slow in the UK cos we put the clocks forward for British Summer Time. But as u have started a related thread..no need


So Kevin...read above

LOL, I know Kev. Flash sucks! (I had an argument at College the other day with my teacher, told him he could shove Flash up his ... ehh ...)

In any case, did you check the downloads area? (That isnīt Flash)
I think webmasters can use some script or software from their own server to display the Internet Time in the site. Actually it might not look like much, but lots of sites are using it.

To people that donīt know what Iīm talking about, that would be the "@145" "@675" etc numbers you see at some sites.

Cheers people!

Hmm, itīs actually quite easy. They divided the day in what they call beats (1000 of them). So actually noon would be @500, and they fixed a Time Zone (Switzerland) as Internetīs Time Zone.

So when I say to you, "Letīs battle, models should be presented before April5th @500", you would have to check the time placed at some part of the site that day. It should help manage better the comps, battles and related. (As everything would be guided by ONE time zone only)

-Itīs a quite efficient system, and easy to get accostumed to, they are even starting to sell watches with current time and Internet Time on them-
