If Germany is on Daylight Savings then you are on GMT+2. The UK is on GMT+1.
thanks for the warning, but we left daylight savings time mid/end of March.
so indeed my understanding would be that UK is GMT and not GMT+1.
Or am I messing things up now completely?
(so far germany was always GMT+1 and greewitch was in UK, no?)
Cheers

Are you sure? Most countries go on to DST at that time. See here: http://www.timeanddate.com/time/map/

Greenwich Mean Time is NOT the time in Greenwich - that's why lots of people refer to GMT as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Germany is on UTC+2, which is the same as GMT+2. Germany is always an hour ahead of the UK, but the UK is not always on GMT ;)

Ok I reread a bit on wikipedia.
It seems UTC is taking daylight saving into account, which I was not really aware of.
My windows calender still says I am on GMT+1 :)

anyway it seems Axis and myself did it in the same fashion.
According to the calender there is an 8hour difference between germany and colorado.
so we were both wrong.
its not GMT-7 and GMT+1,
but UTC-6 and UTC+2 (UTC being what we are supposed to say instead of GMT as I read)

anyway see you then on 1PM colorado time, axis.

Thanks for keeping watch dode :)

Cheers

Hi Bloot, i'm from Spain at GMT+2 right now i have relatively liberty in schedule just tell me your online time....
Hey Frikipe. I tried to get ahold of you online a couple times but with no luck. I live in Denmark so I am at +1 GMT or +2 not sure if they have changed to summer time yet. But anyways this sunday around eight or nine is a good time for me. I will probably be online once in awhile these days so if i can see that you are online we can just play whenever. But for now lets just plan for sunday if that works with you?
