From Costa Rica, in L.A. it's 10:00 and in N.Y. it's, um, later.
Too many time zones, sorry.

Well.. I live in the UK so I reckon...

London 12noon
Helsinki 2pm
Los Angeles 4am
Ottawa 7am
Sydney 11pm
Adelaide 9pm
Wellington 12midnight
Hong Kong 7pm
Cape Town 1pm.

   Heh. Some people seem to know the position of Cape Town better than the position of Adelaide.
   From what I can find, Adelaide is GMT+9 and Sydney is GMT+10... GMT+12 for Wellington, GMT+1 for Cape Town, GMT-5 for Ottawa and New York, GMT-8 for Los Angeles, GMT+2 for Helsinki and GMT+8 for Hong Kong (this is a hard one, too close to the boundary, 114.1)... But I was looking at geographical maps and longitude, actual time zones may be different for political reasons. And daylight savings.

NYC-also 12 noon
California-9 a.m.
England ?? (I think 5 p.m.)
I don't know the rest

I can only do two off the list, New York (3 p.m.) and Los Angeles (12 noon-we're in the same time zone). I could do the others, but I would have to cheat and look them up to be able to get the right answers.

If it's any help to you, New York is three hours ahead of L.A.

10) 10:00 PM

I'm probably way off on some of them.

So are you going to mark us? I see you didn't make Adelaide 23:30! I didn't realise how fudgeed up I was until I looked at a time zone map and realised I had been subtracting instead of adding! Silly Zang! I managed to get Los Angeles (same time zone as me) right, and fluked off Wellington and Capetown (somewhere on the other side of the planet).
(reply to icurok) posted 25-Jan-2002 4:26am  
My guess. I'm as clueless as the rest of you.
(reply to Zang) posted 25-Jan-2002 4:27am  
I guess eventually I will have to mark you all. Its a big job.
posted 26-Jan-2002 2:53am  
I'm really bad at this.I can't remember if I add or subtract.

New York 12 noon
Los Angeles 9am
Hawaii (depending tho on daylight savings time.)6 am or 7 am. Who the heck thought of doing this daylight savings time,had too much time on HIS hands.
London 6 pm
