How interesting, surfan and Iver, thanks for the info. Here's the thing, if it's 7:07 am here, now, it would be 13:07 pm, ur time, now, but I believe Iver is saying that it would be that, + two hours, Compostela time, is this correct? Am trying to set my CSJ forum time correctly. Best, xm 8)


John Harrison
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Harrison (March 24, 1693–March 24, 1776) was an English clockmaker who revolutionised and extended the possibility of safe long distance sea travel in the Age of Sail by inventing a long-sought and critically-needed key piece in the problem of accurately establishing the East-West position, or longitude, of a ship at sea. The problem was so intractable that the English Parliament offered a huge fortune for the day (£20,000, roughly £6 million in 2007 terms),[1] for a solution...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Harrison

GMT DOES NOT SWITCH TO SUMMER TIME
The United Kingdom (UK) switches to British Summer Time (BST)
(which is an hour ahead of GMT)
from Sunday 25 March 2007 01:00 GMT
until: Sunday 28 October 2007 01:00 GMT
Time synchronized to the NTP network and should be accurate to within 1 second.

Your Local Timezone = GMT - 04:00

Tuesday, 1 May 2007
07:05:29 (a.m.)


Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
Tuesday, 1 May 2007
11:05:29 (a.m.)


The clock will automatically re-synchronize in 289 seconds.
 
if you're in Miami, you're on E Time, which is GMT-5, GMT-4 when you're on daylight savings. Spain is GMT+1 in winter and GMT+2 in summer (even in Galicia which is well west of Greenwich). So, yes, E Time is generally 6 hours behind Santiago. But to add to the complications, the US changes to daylight savings at a different time to Europe, so for a couple of weeks each year this is not the case.

If you really want to be exact, you could change your profile to reflect each change relative to GMT, but I would imagine you have better things to do. :)
