It would help to post the downtime in UTC/GMT. I have no idea what CEST is. Thanks.

Hi AAProds,

Good point - GMT and EST have both been added.

Now I'm trying to work out what 12:00 AM GMT is! If it is from 9:00 "AM" then the "12:00" must be PM. Better to make all time ref the 24 hour clock. Apologies for being pedantic...😉

Hi

10.00am till 13.00pm cest time is one hour ahead of UK so its

(9.00 AM - 12:00 PM GMT)

Central European Standard Time ( CEST ) is 1 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time ( GMT+1 ).

I agree. It's all very confusing for us oldies. The 24 hour clock avoids any misunderstandings.

Slightly OT, perhaps but..

Has anything been "changed" by this maintenance??? To me, the forum seems to look and function exactly as it did before!!

@emmrecs

I don't see any difference, is maintenance just basically carrying out software updates, back up systems and virus scans, removing backlog of spam posts, check Web page loading etc?

The above is actually wrong
CEST = Central European Summer Time (UTC+2)
CET = Central European (Standard) Time (UTC+1)

Both timezones are 1 hour ahead of current time in UK, but CEST is GMT+2 whereas BST (British Summer Time) = GMT+1
CET = GM+1 (and BST).

GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) does not change with summertime and is the same as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)

I wish the world would stick with GMT as the reference point. CET, CEST and UTC get me confused. When were they invented? Is Europe all on the same time? I'm GMT +12, easy to understand.

@ericlnz Here is a nice map with timezones in Europe. GMT is not really relavent for most countries.

ericlnz wrote on 4/30/2021, 5:03 AM

Thanks @SP. Looks like Ireland has two zones!

Hi

The map creator is causing the issue by referencing Local Mean Time in those charts, which no one uses now.

@Daniel-Green

Hello, Welcome

Please do not hijack other threads, this has nothing to do with maintenance down time.

This is bad etiquette in the forums.

Create your own thread with Xara issues.
