Time Zone clock on the Shadowtk part of my web site.
Okay, I've started to experiment again. :)
I've checked the script in the following browsers
Netscape 3.0, 3.02, 4.0, 4.05
MSIE 4.0, 4.02, 5.01
It works fine in all of them. Why I don't know. Perhaps I may have done
something right for a change. :)
The point being, that there is occasionally a discrepancy between Time
Zones with posters on the list. Now I don't for one minute expect
people to stay on-line while writing their mail, but the clock is there
and it's available to anyone who wants it. Simply save the page locally
to your machine, and it /should/ work fine.
languages are still a mystery to me. :) Though I intend to change that
in the future.
The direct url is...
What I'd like to find out is if the damn thing works from other parts of
It /should/ read local system time, and the time from two other cities
of your choice relative to each other.
So, say you're in Los Angeles. The script will read your system time
and display that (local time)
Then select another city - say Berlin, and the script should display the
time incremental to that city. Select another city, Chicago and you get
another time read out.
At least, that's what is supposed to happen. It works for me, but that
doesn't mean a damn thing.
The reason I've tried again is for people on the list to have the thing
handy on their hard drives for easy reference, that way if they have a
character in another part of the world, they'll at least get an accurate
time reading from that place. In theory. :)
All time zones are taken from a nation meridian based on Greenwich
England. Please let me know if it's screwed or if it works. :)
