There must be something you or someone you know, will want from there Smile

If not, get THESE for me and I'll cover the shipping and your time.Wink

Don't worry they can ship USPS so depending on what you get it could be as cheap as us$5 for express post.

 

I reckon their servers will crash or the allocated $100k will run out in the hour

Interesting. But that timezone info site is useless. They have lots of internal links, but they don't say anywhere which states follow MST. Only say AZ does follow it, but doesn't have DST. Not useful at all.

In any case, your calculation is wrong because NZ is in the first timezone (+13 GMT) so there's no way it can be a day earlier here than MST. I think you've gone the wrong way. Pacific Time is 3 hours ahead of us at the moment (and a day earlier) and east coast is 6 hours ahead (and a day earlier). MST is somewhere in between. Central time is an hour before east coast, so I'd assume MST is the in between zone (i.e. 5am on the 8th here).

Actually, I just had a look at that site.  What's wrong with it?  You don't need to know which states follow MST do you?  You only need to know the current time there (2.37pm yesterday), i.e. 20 hours behind our time.  So my intial guess was correct.

What information would you like that site to have?  It serves its purpose fine, I would have thought?

freitasm: I'd like to know which states use the MST. That simple...

Oh.  Fair enough :)

I'm sure you've found this by now then.
