The reason for this page is that I thought it would be a good thing to know how much the time difference is between your home country (or the country you're currently staying in) and the place you're going to visit.
That said, I think this makes a valuable reference for folks doing country and region pages, so they say things like:
Does that make any sense? -- Evan 19:34, 22 Nov 2003 (PST)
That does make sense. I didn't intend this page to be a "regular" one, but rather a kind of index page for general reference. I'm thinking of the sort of thing you find in guides about travel in general rather than guides about a particular destination. I do think such index pages can have their value, even if it is only to compare different destinations with one another. I have ideas for other "index pages" or "charts", such as vaccinations (see Iamat for an example), currencies, weather (Global weather guide), etc... Anyway, before I tackle one of those I'll continue with this one. If it's going to be used, good -- if not, we can always delete it. Your thoughts? DhDh 05:37, 23 Nov 2003 (PST)
I think the quick facts section should include the UTC offset. This page is useful also, but it might be a bit painful to keep them syncronised - although I guess that's the advantage of a wiki - anybody finding the inconsistency can update it. --Caffeine 10:38, 30 Jan 2004 (EST)
Daylight saving time is interesting. The date of changes varies. EU - last sunday in March, last Sunday in October. US - first sunday in April, last sunday in October. According to http://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst2004a.html some change as early as February. I think this sort of stuff probably belongs in the country article however.
