    Time Zones at the FCon site

    I'm somewhat confused by what the time zone selection are showing on the FCon site. I live in the Central Time Zone, which is -6 hours from UTC during the summer. The FCon site is showing it as being -5 hours. Now granted I can simply set my time zone to Mountain Time to get the -6 hour offset, but I just wanted to know if I'm not seeing something right on the site, or if others have encountered this, etc. Obviously my main worry is missing a scheduled game due to an incorrect time setting.

    Central is -5 UTC during the summer (daylight savings). Assuming you're in Central Daylight Time.

    The FG Con website is showing the UTC offset of -5 which is correct for your selected timezone of US/Central.

    If his location is correct (NE MS) then yes, he is in Central Daylight right now. He does *not* live in an area that does not apply daylight savings. And UTC-5 *is* correct.

    Hmm... well then my math was off. How embarrassing. Yes I am in Central, and after double checking again we are -5 off UTC. Sorry for the trouble.

    Better that you ask these things. We use an online database to pull all the regions, timezones, offsets, daylight savings start/finish dates fro and its not always right. We just realised last week that it was wrong for 3 Australian States....

    Well, the state anyway. Would take a rather large death ray to take him out. The XT-20 Microwaver should suffice.
