As far as I can see on the forum the time being shown is GMT+1 - so it is now about 8:30pm. Ireland and the UK are currently working to this time :)

now, that's quite interesting, as the time notice in your post (as I can see it) is:

*confused*

and Grania, don't get me wrong - I am not trying to contradict you, I'm just curious how this is possible ;)

anyway, I will try to be around at that time, which should work whatever the time differences :mrgreen:

I think in Poland it will be 10 pm :)

Btw, Luned: Grania's last post shows as Thu Sep 11, 2008 9:31 pm at my computer, I think it's not very reliable :)

The forum time does seem to be GMT, Luned. So the UK and Ireland are 1 hour ahead of the "forum time" at the moment, and Central European Time (including Poland!) is currently 2 hours ahead. So, if the chat starts at 9pm GMT, it'll be 11pm in your part of the world!!! :lol:

Hope that helps to clear things up.

See!! That's what I meant, it's confusing LOL. I always thought England and Ireland are on GMT time...and we're one hour ahead so that would mean ten o 'clock.

But:

So if we're having the chat at 9pm GMT...it would mean in Ireland it is 10pm and in Holland it is 11 pm

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Just to confuse you all a bit more...
But ehm...if you could just tell me what time we'll be having the chat Irish/UK time then I know what time we're on here

:mrgreen: :mrgreen:

BTW. I think you can adjust the time on your computer.
I found out this afternoon that if I set my profile on GMT + 2 it shows the right Dutch time....Still following me?!? :lol: :wink: :mrgreen:

Between March and October, we're on British Summer Time here, Hessie, which is GMT +1, as G mentioned. Most of Europe is currently GMT+2, so you're still an hour ahead of us in the UK.

Sure, should be 10pm UK time.. if I've understood Nessie's post correctly!!! :wink: :mrgreen:

Thank you so much, Dave! :) Your explanations do clear things up! :)

yes! I saw that in my profile, too. But this was the part I decided I'd better not meddle with, as well as with some other codes :mrgreen: Besides, that would mean we are in the same time zone, which is again rather helpful in sorting this 'time confusion' out :lol:

Aha! Now theeere you go! I didn't know that...Well off course I knew you guys have summertime like we do here, indeed also from March to October, but I never knew that the GMT stayed fixed and that you note your time then as GMT + 1...and as a result we get GMT + 2
duh, makes sense obviously since it is Greenwich Mean Time :oops: :wink:

I didn't mention it here cause I was afraid of missing out on the chat or anything...it was just out of curiousity really...and it got me wondering. Well there you go I learned something again tonight!! Thanks Dave :D

Thanks Dave for clearing it up :) I didn't know the forum was one hour ahead and I was just wondering why on earth the chat should start at 11 here - if Poland is in the GMT+01:00 zone :lol:

Pleasure!!! BTW, if you have Windows Vista, you can display the time in GMT without changing your current settings. I don't want to bore everyone by posting the instructions, but if you want to know how to set this up, please PM me, and I'll be happy to explain - Might be handy over the next few days!!! :mrgreen:

Apologies to Windows XP users - I can't remember if this is something that XP can do. If so, some kind soul might like to let people know..... :wink:

GAAAAH hang on a minute I have messed up big time- it's not GMT, it's BST! so the chat this weekend will start at 9 pm IRISH TIME- GMT+1- for people in the Netherlands it will be 10pm.

Sorry! Silly me trying to be smart with my letters...

I thought 'GMT' was just whatever time it is in Britain! Massively silly... *burries head in shame*

That's what I thought too, hence the confusion!

Glad it is all sorted out now, :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

It would really help if all of Europe was on the same time wouldn't it? :lol: Never mind, it's all sorted now
